My life is set up to do 'more'.
More work. More movement. More stuff.
There's no time to waste. More needs to be done.
If I pause, I guilt myself back into action.
If I find a way to save time, I fill that time with more stuff.
Pile it on. It doesn't matter what it is. As long as it's something.
Except when I visit home.
I live 26 hours from my family, so when I get the chance to visit, I reduce my work to the minimum effective dose.
If it's not essential, it's not happening.
But if it is, I do it with the force of a thousand suns.
And I noticed something.
Each time I go home, I experience a small 'boom' in my business.
New clients. A few more email subscribers. A little more engagement on my social media posts.
I do less, and get more.
There's a story about Henry Ford that I love. I'll paraphrase it below.
An important man came to visit Henry Ford at his factory. On his way to Fords office, he saw a man sitting in his chair with his feet up.
*shakes his head*
When he reached Ford he said, "you know, there's a guy sitting in the office down the hall with his feet up, doing nothing."
Ford replied, "That man once came up with an idea that made me millions of dollars. When he came up with it, he was sitting in that same position."
If that worker was obsessed with filling every minute with work, he may not have come up with that idea.
The work is important. But empty space creates the inspiration behind your best stuff.
Less Is More
Packing my day with more stuff created a fluffy, bloated, and busy schedule.
And this is the same mistake most people make with fitness.
More exercises, more sets, more workouts, more 'stuff'.
But in fitness, like in life, less is more.
Every great coach I know aims to reduce the clutter in their clients training plans. Eliminate the fluff, leave the essential.
Eliminating the clutter from your plan means, instead of wasting time and energy on things that matter a little bit, you go all in on things that matter a lot.
This leaves you with more time, better recovery, and more impressive results.
By reducing the fluff from my daily life, I've created more meaningful work while reducing stress.
In the same way, by reducing the clutter from your training plan, you'll have more energy for the things that matter most, leading to better results.
Less is more.
So eliminate the fluff, and go all in on what matters.
