Less is More

By Mike Johnson

A glass of water is nourishing. A tub of water is cleansing. A pool of water is refreshing. A flood of water is destructive.

Too much of anything becomes a problem.

Be careful what you wish for.

Whenever we add more of something to the existing mix, we dilute what is already there.

Paper & digital currency. Restaurants & storefronts. Laws. College degrees. Immigration. Government. Social media. Children. Pets. "Personal brands."

We only have so much attention bandwidth. Once we exceed capacity, "more" just overwhelms and ruins the peace we already had.

Better to attend to less, more deeply, than more, shallowly.

Eventually, everyone learns that less is more.
