Doing nothing.

I spent most of yesterday perfecting my technique of doing nothing at a higher level. I didn't quite get finished so I will be in pursuit of the same goal today. Anyone can do nothing, but to do it well takes a particular dedication that not everyone can muster. I have been at it 5 years now and I am starting to feel the hours I've devoted to the endeavor of doing nothing are beginning to pay off. No longer am I plagued by feelings of guilt while doing nothing, no longer do I feel the need to list, in my mind, all the things I should be doing, No, now I can do nothing and really savor it and that is the highest level of doing nothing.

Guess what I will be doing today and I will still have time to enjoy the good life.

  2. I must be on the wrong path because I never seem to be able to do nothing. Every time I turn around it seems that Kathy and I are doing something. The important thing to remember is they are both ways of Enjoying the Good Life!

    It's about time.

    1. You can still enjoy the good life when you're busy, but it's a whole lot easier when you're doing nothing.
