Deciding to do nothing is still deciding to do something.
Difference is, when you decide to do nothing, you have less control over the outcome.
When ‘nothing’ is your decision, bad habits begin to replace good ones, systems start failing, and boredom yields justification.
And this isn’t to say that nonstop activity is the answer, either. It’s the idea that you can’t simply omit things from your life, you replace them. It’s about making decisions instead of allowing decisions to make you.
