Less is more.
That familiar concept has picked up momentum with a movement toward minimalism that has taken many forms. It has had an influence on what people are eating, how they are shopping, when they are using their electronics, and many other aspect of their routines -- all in an effort to sharpen their focus and lead more fulfilling lives.
For some, minimizing can mean a change in approach when it comes to your to-do list. Instead of making it a mile long, then racing all day to try and cross off as many items as you can, cut it back to the few things that you truly need to address that day. Then, spend your precious time and narrow focus on those very things, allowing them to receive the attention they deserve.
For others, it can mean paring what you're wearing. Closets are becoming less cluttered as people are finding freedom by limiting their wardrobe choices, affording them fewer decisions and less stress during their routine of getting ready for each day.
Doing more with less is big in a way I approach advisory relationships with clients; it's not new or trendy to me. When it comes to this concept, I long have espoused the value of trading less; minimizing taxes; turning down the noise from Wall Street; decluttering your financial life; and boiling down what truly matters to you, so you can create a clear life plan to-do list.
