This is what I read at Barnes & Nobel’s on 2/25/2017. Below is the note from reading Time magazine.
“The science of stretching offers an effective alternative for us to do more without getting more, see potential rather than worrying about perceived limitations.
The habit of stretching readies us to work through the challenges. With too many resources, we become distracted by our accumulations, focus on the wrong goals, become wasteful of what we do have already.”
I have to add something else here. Sometimes when we are surrounded by too much stuffs, more than we need, we are rendered unable to enjoy life. We have to spend time organizing stuffs, trying to decide which we will keep and which we will dispose. The more time we have to spend on our stuffs, the less time we have for our life, the more miserable we feel, the more we wish we had not bought them home in the first place! Lesson learned too late!
Question for ourselves: what can I do with what I already have, instead of waiting to get more in order to do more?
Stop comparing with others! Sometimes, it is difficult to be productive and content with what you have when you are constantly making comparison with others.
