Most of us are familiar with and have used a ‘to do’ list. In the spirit of my last post, you also ought to have a ‘to do nothing’ list. It is meant to work in conjunction with the ‘to do’ list, and is no less important. And it is really fun to make a ‘to do nothing’ list. It might involve committing to doing nothing for 30 seconds after a certain task or ‘behavior’. It just makes all the difference to being able to step into ‘voluntary living’, to quote Semmelroth’s term.
You end up smelling the proverbial roses more often, while enhancing your effectiveness.
Go figure that would be the case.
The bibilical story of David and Goliath is instructive in what I am trying to get across – that’ll be next.
Now I am going to do nothing though.
