If you want tranquility, focus. Isn’t it best to focus on what it takes to be a decent social animal? Such actions bring not only the tranquility that comes from doing well, but also the satisfaction that comes from focusing on doing only a few important things.
Face it—most of what we say and do is not necessary. Stop doing those unnecessary things and have more time and more calm. Keep asking yourself: Is this really necessary?
Do away with not only unnecessary actions, but also unnecessary thoughts. Be done with the unnecessary.
