Not Settling For Less

Contrary to popular belief, contentment doesn’t mean settling for less. It does not mean that you ignore what you really want, insisting that what you have now is enough. In reality, contentment may actually mean settling for more. It is settling for more of what is important to you- settling for more time with your family and more time pursuing your goals and dreams.

Spend Less Time on the Unimportant

It may mean settling for less time spent on the unimportant- less time chasing material items that will mean nothing to you and have no value years from now.  Remember the saying, “The one with the most toys at the end of life wins?” Sounds like that person should have settled for spending more time and energy on the important rather than on accumulation.

At the end of your life, what will people say you settled for?

You have a choice, and the choice is yours.
