Learning

Leo Babauta recently summarized lessons he’s learned over ten years of publishing Zen Habits:

What I’ve Learned in 10 Years of Zen Habits

I love experience roundups like this. Some interesting insights:

“The pull of distractions and urges to buy things (to solve problems or give us pleasure) is incredibly strong. Consumerism pulls on us every day, every time we watch TV, read online, see friends or strangers using products … and results in us owning too man possessions and getting too deep in debt.”

“I experimented with giving up goals after being very focused on goals for years. It was liberating, and it turns out, you don’t just do nothing if you don’t have a goal. You get up and focus on what you care about.”

“The deeper I dive into mindfulness, the more I find that you can’t really work with anything important without it.”
