Use the Margins

"The ultimate value of life depends upon awareness and the power of contemplation rather than upon mere survival." -- Aristotle

Take a look at the pages from a random book. Notice the margins. Notice the space. If the pages were covered completely with words, it would be too chaotic. It would be overwhelming.

Not only do the margins make it more visually appealing, but the margins allow us to contemplate. We can jot down notes, make connections, capture our thoughts and ideas. The margins allow us to explore what the words mean.

Our lives are like this.

The margins and the space in our life is where the valuable contemplation occurs. They allow us to process what's happening. They allow us to make sense of it all. The allow us to explore what it all means.

Life without margins becomes too chaotic.

Remember this today when you feel your pages of life filling up.

Make it a great day!

Coach Chris
