For the longest time, it was Becoming Limitless Review believed that brute strength was the key to success, but now in an economy ruled so much by knowledge and expertise, the mind has come back to the forefront, back from the days of philosophy and intellectual thought. No more is it about flexing your muscles but flexing the most powerful one you will ever strain - the brain. Spread the word and let people know. Let it be the new maxim for the 21st century!As we approach a new year, we hear numerous promotions by gymnasiums and weight loss programs. Financial planners encourage us to meet with them in order to develop a retirement plan. Retail stores invite us to purchase items at reduced prices. Everyone is after us to do more or accumulate more. I have decided to do less and get rid of things in the next year. 

I am determined to work fewer hours and simplify my business bookkeeping practices. If I use less paper, I will have less to shred one day. Renovating my office has resulted in three smaller rooms rather than two large ones and this has led me to moments of thoughtfulness in how to simplify the decorating. Fewer items mean less dusting.Since moving to the condo two years ago, I have been in a process of eliminating excess. Finally I have finished opening all the boxes! My theory is that when you find things that you forgot you owned, it means that you probably don't need them. Reduce, recycle, reuse. 

Garage sale enthusiasts claim "One person's junk is another person's treasure". I usually can't be bothered with selling things but have been blessed to see the smiles on faces of staff at a local charity when I gave them a computer monitor and keyboard that was filling my closet. An "extra" bed and couch I didn't need are now being used in a home for immigrants. My home security system went to a friend whose daughter is a sleep-walker. Over Christmas I vowed NOT to buy any more wrapping paper or cards and used up left overs from previous years. I've also been looking at jewelry and scarves with "new eyes "and having fun by using a little creativity to spruce up outfits. I'm challenging clients to see how long they can stay away from the grocery store by eating out of their cupboards and freezer. Why do we need to have enough food on hand to feed a small army? Try it and you will be surprised not only by the amount of money you save but also how interesting your menus can be.

Maybe it would make sense to let go of eating out and start packing a nutritious lunch to take with you. Over the last few months, I have been questioning everything I do to determine its value. Do I really need all those magazine subscriptions? How many email newsletters do I really want to receive a month? How are all the bank charges assessed - and do I really need so many services? I was getting six bills for telephone and internet services between the office and home. Now I have consolidated and only receive two - both of which can be received electronically rather than by mail.
