60 Things We Need Less and More Of, What Would You Add?

Love this list from the Harvard Business Review!

WE NEED LESS: WE NEED MORE:
Information Wisdom
Shallow billionaires Passionate teachers
Self-promotion Self-awareness
Multitasking Control of our attention
Inequality Fairness
Sugar Lean protein
Action Reflection
Super sizes Smaller portions
Private jets High-speed trains
Calculation Passion
Experts Learners
Blaming Taking responsibility
Judgment Discernment
Texting Reading
Anger Empathy
Output Depth
Constructive criticism Thank-you notes
Possessions Meaning
Righteousness Doing the right thing
Answers Curiosity
Long hours Longer sleep
Complaining Gratitude
Sitting Moving
Selling Authenticity
Cynicism Realistic optimism
Self-indulgence Self-control
Speed Renewal
Emails Conversations
Winning Win-win
Immediate gratification Sacrifice

I would add: less outrage and more momentum, less lecturing and more listening, less being busy and more sleep, less guilt and more acceptance, less judgement and more celebration

What would you add?

    less criticism, more words of affirmation (encouragement); related to constructive criticism/thank you notes, but different

      I completely agree with you Heather!

    Fewer cars, more bikes :)

      definitely! I walk and ride my bike as much as I can. Wish more US cities were bike and pedestrian friendly.

      Or fewer car lanes, more bike lanes; fewer highways, more bike trials.
