Interestingly, a secret of life is the nothingness of life. Those that have come to understand when and how to use nothing, have been disproportionately rewarded.
Let’s go a little deeper.
In health, what and when not to eat is just as important as what and when to eat.
In investments, buying is followed by a long “do nothing” phase, if you expect compounding to be on your side.
In parenting, the times you stay out of the way and allow growth through some difficulty, is important for character building.
In music, nothing between notes can determine the difference between classics and fads.
In relationships, the periods of nothing reveals the hidden intents of the heart – worthy or unworthy.
In tourism, people travel long distances to get away from everything familiar and experience a little bit of nothing.
In life, the nothing we knew before birth is the nothing we will embrace after death.
There is an art and a science to knowing when and how to do nothing, but it is so hard, because it takes everything to do nothing.
