Our 21st century problem is not too little but too much. Even those of us who feel we don’t have enough are suffering from surfeit.  

Too much choice.

We hoard, afraid to let go. We flick mindlessly from one thing to another, never really settling. Or we put up with something that’s making us unhappy, afraid to face into the enormity of what’s possible.

The only way out of this is to choose like an artist.

Both hoarders and artists collect — but the creative collects selectively. Only what has real resonance is allowed in. Only what is really loved.

Move towards what you love, in big things and small.

Select from your own sense of what’s best and have the courage to let go of the rest.
