For most of human history, more was always better. More food meant you didn’t starve. More family meant that you had more hands to help bring in the crops. More money meant more land and posessions.
That was in an era of scarcity.
For many of us in the western world, the scarcity that was known is known no longer. Today, more is not always better. More work hours may not mean more returns. More food can mean disease. More stuff means that you have fewer things you can actually enjoy.
So, while there are still times where more is better, we see many places in our culture where less is more.
We see space for people to do less, focus their efforts, and reap better rewards.
These aren’t always the classic rewards. In fact, the rewards we’re talking about are often less tangible, but more fulfilling.
There are others all around us who are joining the story. They are writing books, finding solutions to complex problems, and making beautiful products that are steeped in value and meaning.
These are the stories we’re after and we invite you to join us.
Turn off the noise and settle in for stories of those making large impact through simple, focused efforts.
