The coaching in this article isn’t new, but have you taken action with the self-discipline required? It’s self-care, really.
The quote above really appealed to me, because it implies that you haven’t blinders on - you are aware of the rest of the world, and you’ve made an informed choice.
Me? My own attempts to have more life in my life are simple. I keep a small, comfortable home. I have always had a live/work studio with low overhead that gives me flexibility to work on projects that I choose and allows access to my family and time off when I need it. My daily schedule allows time for the things I know that I need in my life like study and reflection and exercise. I try to work on projects I find meaningful and make things people won’t throw away. The money is rarely enough, but whose is?
Goodreads Review: The Great Reset
The Great Reset: How New Ways of Living and Working Drive Post-Crash Prosperity by Richard Florida
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Florida’s The Great Reset is a Sense of Place book: It explains in an urbanist’s economic language why life as we know it is changing, and how that can be a good thing looking forward — so come on people, let’s make it happen!
The current events of the day largely swirl around us steeped in negativity (case in point), further gloom-and-doomed by political polarity and ideology hopelessly stalled at its extremes (case in point #2). Thus I wanted to read a book backed by credible research which would help me better understand the economics of it all, while written with a generous dose of healthier, yet realistic optimism. Florida satisfied on both counts, and he’s caused me to ask much better questions of my own lifestyle choices, for I’ve been contemplating a move — as a result, I can’t wait to make it happen.
Florida wrote The Great Reset a year ago, and having read it, I now see his predictions playing out quite clearly. In his latest blog post specific to the book, he says,
“We need to break with the past and engage with the future that is already upon us. There is no stopping this ongoing Great Reset. But left to its own devices it will unfold in a stop-and-start, trial-and- error fashion over the course of the next two, maybe three decades. My hope is that this book can help us move more quickly down the path to real recovery, minimizing the pain and suffering faced by too many, and ushering in a new era of sustainable prosperity for everyone.”
Me too. I highly recommend you read this one for yourself.
