2. Add value and reduce waste in what you think, say and do.
- learned from my Manager 'KD' in 2014 after watching Simon Sineck's TED talk on 'The Golden Circle'. During this 21 Days of Detachment Experiment, adding value has come in the form of knowing what's good for me and my life experience, and applying those helpful and necessary concepts to my life now. Reducing waste has meant removing the lower energy habits, behaviours, thought patterns, acts and people that no longer resonate with me. Some of them existed in my life because I wanted to experience that moment, be hands on with that particular activity, teach myself what I had to do because no-one else would show me, or have a sound opinion on a matter simply because I'd 'been there and done that'. However, those things were only necessary in my life for that period of time, and letting them go has empowered me more than it has corrupted me because 'I've lived, I've learned' and I've escaped the entrapment of those wasteful things. Even now, I still have gratitude even for those wasteful times.
In the long term, having the knowledge of how to add value and reduce waste in my life will help keep me focused, determined and productive with where I want to go, who I want to be around and what I want to do.
