If you look at a magazine, the actual text is only a small portion of the content. The rest is in the photos, graphics and the white space. The space gives the eye room to roam, relax and take in all of the information without getting overloaded.
That's the same recipe for life. Add some white space. Make your life stand out by focusing on your top priorities. How?
One of the illustrations I use in my speaking engagements is that none of us can be any more than we are right now without giving up something. It's best illustrated by the glass that's completely full of water. "Can you get any more water into that glass?" I ask the audience. The answer is "yes," as long as you first pour out some of the water that's already in the glass.
We need to think about subtraction for every new goal. Think about what to give up or stop doing for every new activity. Don't keep piling on new things or you'll simply be busier, but rarely more productive.
Think like an editor. Add some white space.
