#065 – Edit (Essentialism Pt 15) [Podcast]

We previously likened looking at our lives as a journalist … listening, asking questions, connecting the dots, investigating. Another way to integrate Essentialism is to see yourself as an editor, where you edit your life.



The root word for “decision” is cis or cid, which means “to cut.”  You see this root word in “scissors.”  A great way to embrace essentialism is to view your life as an editor … to cut out things in your life, in order to make room for more important things in your life.
