Whatever Doesn’t Look Like That

Soap Circle

I was just looking at this chain that I whittled out of a family sized bar of Ivory soap.  The most common question I get about this after people marvel that I would have that much extra time on my hands is, “How did you do that?”  The answer is simple, I just cut off everything that doesn't look like that.  Our lives tend to accumulate a lot of extra baggage from time to time.  Get a clear picture of what you want your life to look like, and start cutting off whatever doesn't look like that!

    Great lesson here – concentrate on what matters now … and DO IT NOW!

    Amazing how simplicity is powerful.
    Cutting off everything that does not look like how we want it, is simple.
    Cutting the soap bar into the chain looks difficult, cutting the things out of minds, lives, and environments will be difficult but worth each cut.
