March 17: Why Do We Complicate Things?

Day 28


Getting clear about what we want is critical to simplifying our lives.


Get clear about who you are and who you are not, about what you do and what you don’t do. Ask the question, “What am I here for?”

If you’re reading Perfectly Yourself, read pages 144–150 (paperback version) or pages 150–156 (hardcover version).


God, grant me courage and clarity as I take on the challenges of the inner life.

What are you here for?
