When my business began to be successful, I accepted more and more contracts, created more and more projects, traveled to more and more countries.
But a critical threshold had appeared, and though I continued to become more and more successful the more and more I added, it was taking more and more away from my life with my family.
Once my career had thrived, I found that my most precious commodity had not been my experiences, skills, or discoveries, but my time.
Now, that I’ve been eliminating the superfluous, concentrating on the most essential, most far-reaching, most impacting of the contracts I accept, projects I create and places I travel.
I’ve discovered that the best way to add value to my life is to subtract that which detracts from it.
