Last week, I ran a poll to see whether you all find significant value in the longer form good news article I usually begin this newsletter with. The results were as follows...
37% said they prefer short stories/headlines only
33% said they love longer stories
30% said they had no preference
Because of that, I'm going to take a pause on the longer stories, at least for now. This is mostly just about giving myself a little less to do and making life more spacious. My plate has been filling up with clients and other opportunities lately. So I've been feeling more and more stretched to get it all done every week. Writing these articles isn't necessarily something that gives me a huge spark, but I was curious to what degree it offered you all something significant. Now that it seems clear that these longer articles aren't totally vital to most of you, this feels like a little gift to myself to make things more easeful and spacious.
Is there something in your life you can unburden yourself of? What might be one responsibility you can let go of to make your daily existence a little more easeful and spacious?
