Doing more by doing less

There seems to be a core motivation to do more, and still always feeling perpetually behind and crunched for time.  Time to squeeze it all in.  Screw ‘balance’, just give me a few more hours in the day!  If I only had more time!

I could complain about how busy I am, how crazy things are, or all the stuff I want or need to do.. but that seems sort of self-centered and dumb.  Instead, I think about how much I want to do more.  More time with Jenn.  More time to ride my bike, run, hike and ski.  More stuff to do at work.  More time with family and friends.  More time with my dogs. More work around the house. More more more.

Lately, though, it seems like things that I want to do keep getting pushed.  Part of that comes with building a fast growing company.  Part of it may be the Holiday time of year with parties, errands, trying to finish the year strong, etc.  I’ve been thinking the answer isn’t in doing more, faster – but in doing less with more attention and focus.  Easy to say, hard to do.  With all the innovations and technology we have today we still have an immovable object when it comes to doing stuff: Time.
