“Every time you subtract negative from your life, you make room for more positive.”

One of my favorite coaching exercises is “More, Less, Start, Stop.” The objective is to rebalance our professional and personal worlds by imagining how our lives would be more fulfilling and happier if we could only start, or do more of, the activities that fit with our visions and values.
Of course, to make room for these efforts, we must do less of, or completely stop, those activities that are unfulfilling or negative.
Do your own “More, Less, Start, Stop” exercise with a close friend, colleague, family member, or coach, to help you make room for more of what you desire from life.
Consider reading Marcus Buckingham’s book The One Thing You Need to Know (www.amazon.com/One-Thing-You-Need-Know/dp/0743261658) to see how this idea relates to your professional and personal success.
