Quote: the noble art of leaving things undone

Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone.  The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.  ~Lin Yutang
This is something I  have to remind myself...getting lots of things done is not as important as getting the right things done. I love the phrase "elimination of non-essentials;" it reminds of me of Strunk and White: "Omit needless words."
