Generally people talk about doing more, squeezing it in, and challenge. Rarely do you discuss lightening the load, yet there are times when that's the absolute right thing to do?
To lighten the load often means that you want to focus in, be more precise, and better what you do. If you try to do it all, sometimes that results in subpar performance, relationships, and endeavor.
How do you lighten the load in a world of endless possibilities and opportunities?
First, you need to think about what's really important to you? What is it that you want to accomplish, experience, or do no matter what, and then what's less important to you. What can others do instead of you.
Then you need to think about the kind of energy you need to complete your most important endeavors, and how to maximize that energy.
Lightening the load is often important and should always be considered when big dreams call you forward.
