Think About This: "So, contrary to what some may believe, simplifying is not about retreating to a cabin in the woods and leading a dull, inactive existence. Rather, cutting back your hectic work pace gives you the opportunity to make sure that you’re doing work you love….Simplifying will also help you create the balance you’re seeking in your work life, your family life, and your personal life…You’ll learn how to achieve the success you want without stress and overwork.” Elaine St. James
