Step II: Elimination
“One does not accumulate but eliminate. It is not daily increase but daily decrease. The height of cultivation always runs to simplicity.” —Bruce Lee
The second step of becoming a member of the New Rich is elimination. It’s about optimizing your work and life in order to gain more time so that you can do all the things that you want to do.
If you are working eight hours daily in a company, you can most likely do all of this work much faster, like within six hours, four hours, or even two hours. This might sound impossible at first, but the truth is that most of the things we are working on are not really important. Thus, they can be eliminated.
The goal is to work 10 hours weekly and produce more results than the standard eight-hour worker.
