Powerful Object Lesson

If you’re like a lot of Americans, you have a lot of of stuff. Stuff you spent a lot of money to acquire. Stuff you use only rarely, if ever. Stuff you probably don’t even t look at all that often. Your stuff doesn’t make you happy. You can probably get rid of almost all of your possession, and it wouldn’t make much of a difference in your overall happiness — or probably in your lifestyle.

That’s what blogbuddy Michael Reynolds has found out as he prepares to move across six time zones. Any why is he doing that, you might ask? In so many words, he’s doing it because he can. Because he thinks it will make him and his family happier to do so. The right reasons.

There’s a good lesson there for anyone who takes the time to think about it. Auguri, Reynolds.
