Power of Less

Many of us are living a 24-7-365 lifestyle these days. Babauta argues that much of this is simply busywork, clutter, and noise. He advocates simplifying--just doing less--in order to become more productive and efficient. He stresses several principles, including setting limits, increasing focus, developing new habits, and making small changes at a time. At the same time, he offers practical solutions for the types of problems often encountered in the workplace, including identifying tasks, time management, managing e-mail and internet activities. He advocates establishing routines, keeping the spaces around you clean and clutter free, and balancing work with appropriate fitness and nutrition choices.
