“The Less Routine The More Life”

“The less routine the more life” by Amos Bronson Alcott.

Thinking about retiring, slowing down or just making a change? Author Amos Bronson Alcott, born in 1799 was a teacher, mystic writer and the father of Louisa May Alcott.

I love the way he writes … with such wisdom… the less routine, the more life. Let’s take a minute to think about what we do everyday and how we fill up our time with mindless, routine matters  that take up all of our time.

No wonder we constantly question, “why is the week, the month, or the year going by so fast”?

This is motivating me to question how I spend my days and what might need to be cut out.

Are you too busy?

Is your life shaping up as planned?

What kind of changes do you need to make in order to get to where you want to go?

…just a thought, from Dr. Sue.

    On this beautiful August morning, I can not but help to think about Amos Bronson Alcott’s saying “The Less Routine The More Life”. Has your life become routine, boring and full of monotony?

    Are you on the same schedule day after day, week after week?

    Perhaps this Re-create Your Life blog will touch you in a special way…

    Dr. Sue
