Update #4 - I Extended the Campaign Sept. 13, 2020

Hello, again.

I decided to extend the campaign as August was vacation for a lot of people around the world. Focus now is on keeping reaching out to people that might benefit from this perspective but also getting back to writing after a few weeks break.

What really helps me with writing is to communicate with people and understand their needs and passions. Making a shift in our life is a big project that usually takes most of our energy and attention. But I've been working on ways to develop new habits faster and better.

In my workshop on the subject ("Fewer Better Things: Redesign Your Life With Less") last Friday at a big virtual conference I learned a lot about people's perception of what is possible and not. A few of the participants shared the belief that living a simpler life when self-employed is easier than when being employed. Of course, I challenged this belief as it's the biggest obstacle, and in my eyes excuse, to making the leap to something better.

Everything begins with a decision to say yes and then a follow-through by taking action. Forming a new habit is a repetitive daily habit that eventually evolves from taking a lot of attention to becoming, just that, a simple habit. And our lives are filled with helpful and harmful habits: sleeping in, commuting, working out, watching TV, eating processed foods, thinking the same thoughts et cetera. Anything can be changed.

And it's just physics: a habit is like a moving object and to change the direction you need to develop equal plus a little more energy. That's why new habits on average takes 21 days to form. It's unlearning and relearning, changing and shifting, being and becoming.

I think that's our most important job in life, to upgrade ourselves so that we can live in harmony with everything else: people, planet and technology. But most importantly – ourselves.

Thanks for your support!
