Last summer and this summer, I’ve experienced a strange phenomenon.

I intentionally give myself permission to work less, with even stricter boundaries around my reduced work hours.

And yet, I find my work time to be more focused and effective, and my business results improve.

But, why? Why is less more?

I don’t have THE answer for you. But I do have a theory.

I am playing more.

Whether it’s with my boys, or on my own: I’m having more fun. Being outside, moving my body, letting creativity and free time flow.

Will you experiment with me?

Try it! Give yourself permission to work less. Allow yourself to play more. And let me know what happens. (I’d love to see if you too benefit.)

And, please share other ideas on why less is more for you!
