We have a choice to spend our time on either sustaining or improving.
Sustaining time is associated with keeping things up and running. These are routine activities that form structures around our lives. Though important, sustaining doesn’t help us leap forward.
It takes a balance of both, but we never want to spend more time sustaining than we do improving. Sustaining is thoughtless. Improving is thoughtful.
Improving is what matters in the larger scheme of life.
Let us think bigger by spending bigger chunks of time on improving today.
