The Big Picture

"Being a journalist of your own life will force you to stop hyper-focusing on all the minor details and see the bigger picture. You can apply the skills of a journalist no matter what field you are in- you can even apply them to your personal life. By training yours led to look for "the lead", you will suddenly find yourself able to see what you have missed. You'll be able to do more than simply see the dots of each day: you'll also connect them to see the trends. Instead of just reacting to facts, you'll be able to focus on the larger issues that really matters. " - Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, Chapter 6 - Look: See What Really Matters
