The Noble Art of Leaving Things Undone

For the overwhelmed and perfectionists among us, here is a quote to ponder:

“Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.” – Lin Yutang

As I strive to become more organized in the coming year, I also ponder becoming a minimalist.

Life would be so much easier.

And neater.

    This is a rather old post, however, WordPress in its infinite wisdom suggested it might interest me. And it does! I am all for sorting out the essential, and doing it, and letting the non-essential go. And for me, sometimes cleaning is in the non-essential category. 🙂
