More or Less Needs

I once asked a counseling professional what the objective of a good marriage is. He said, “You want to get more of what you want and less of what you don’t want.”

The older I get the more I believe that should be the 11th Commandment.
More of what you want and less of what you don’t want.

And yes, it means some things/ideas/people you love will get left behind. But you can’t have it all. That’s a child’s way of thinking.

More of what you want and less of what you don’t want.

The key is in understanding what you want…really want…and that moves over into knowing what you need.

In fact, there are times that I wonder if the phrase should be: More of what you need and less of what you don’t need.

Less of what you don’t need leads to a less cluttered life. You can spend more time on those things/ideas/people that really matter.

More of what you need means you’ll spend some time determining where you want to go because that determines what you’ll need to get there.


More of what you need and less of what you don’t need…maybe that’s the ticket.
