Does this situation sound familiar?
You buy something, maybe it’s a house, because you think it will make you happier. But then, you realize you need accessories for your house: a fancy garage opener, a beautiful garden, and sun-powered lights.
All of a sudden, you are overwhelmed by an infinite amount of products you can buy. You feel you need these to be happier and keep up with your neighbors. It’s a never-ending chase and businesses are more than happy to up-sell you on these to make more money.
You may be able to afford all of this stuff, so you get it. You end up with too much stuff, yet you feel no happier. In fact, you feel worse because these possessions own you rather than the other way around. Too many possessions clutter up your workflow.
A similar phenomenon can happen when it comes to your to-do list. There’s always something more you can do to earn more money, have a higher impact, or get better at a skill.
You may feel like you’re doing so much, but not accomplishing enough.
What if I told you all you need you already have.
This isn’t a theory. It’s based on years of scientific research. Listen to this podcast for more info:

As a reminder:
- Busywork is not the same as results-driven work.
- Less possessions can lead to more efficiency, beauty, organization, and/or happiness.
