According to Greg McKeown, one thing that may prevent us from reaching the next level (whatever that may be) is “success”.
A somewhat mind-boggling statement as we are used to thinking that once we are “successful” then we have it covered. Now having heard him speak to his inquiry and findings, his statement makes perfect sense.

- Discerning the essence
- Opening space regularly to stay in the flow
- Developing the capacity to say no (gracefully, respectfully) to the inessential
Yes! More of this, please.
