Be relentless in eliminating life spam: the thoughts, data, and preoccupations that have no value. Also look hard at the information that is of some value. See if it serves enough value to make its existence worthwhile. If any information you receive is not used, or is of marginal use, categorize it for what it is—a waste of time, energy, and/or money—and then dismiss it from your life. Ruthlessly unsubscribe!
What will you do with the time, energy, and money you save? You’ll expend these precious resources on things that matter.

I definitely need to do more unsubscribe.
Yeah. I thought that was a good excerpt from the book. I wouldn’t recommend you reading the book as it’s focus is on business, but there are a lot of little gems like that. He does have a version focused on personal life as well but I haven’t read that one.
