Start Doing Things That Make No Sense

When was the last time you did something that made no sense? I’m not talking crazy here, but maybe it’s time we toss out things like:

1) It has to be measured
2) It has to be scheduled
3) It has to be budgeted
4) It has to be justified
5) It has to have a point

OK – maybe not toss them out completely, but stop being a slave to them. Real creativity happens when we’re not worried about boundaries. The older I get the more I realize the really important things in life can’t be measured, scheduled, or budgeted. Certainly we shouldn’t toss measurement or schedules out totally, but never forget that measuring, budgeting, or scheduling is for “things” – not for “values.”

Remember the difference between values and tasks.  Measure tasks, but open up your life to the freedom of exploring values that create a life that matters. In fact, spend less time on “tasks” and more time on the stuff that you believe really makes a difference.

What are those things in your life?
