The 2K11 24/7 CIII: The Quest for Less Manifesto β€” 3 of 3: ENTROPY

We worry too much.
Here in Toronto, worrying is the name of the game. We’re either worrying about where we’re going to get money to pay off our debts, or worrying about how we’re going to save up enough money to buy stuff so we can worry about where to get the money to pay THOSE debts off.
We worry about or futures, we worry about what’s already passed. The weather, chores, our jobs β€” they’re all fair game. We worry about our stuff and get more stuff to cope with the worry.
You know that I don’t hide the fact that I’m an advocate for having less stuff. I think that it’s the things that we need that should be made sexy β€” not the things that we think we want. Life would be far less confusing this way. But stuff is everywhere. You can’t hide from it. Advertising is everywhere we look. Stuff will FIND you.
So what can you do about it all? How do you become happier in this maelstrom of activity around you?

The 2K11 24/7 CI: The Quest for Less Manifesto β€” 2 of 3: ORDERING

I know I took a quick detour for a bit there, with a couple of voice posts and my big list of 100 tips for the 100th post, but it’s time to get back on track.

It’s REALLY EASY to be a slob. Seriously. I could do it every day without effort. Looking around me right now, I see a bunch of scattered papers for a bunch of projects that I haven’t quite gotten around to doing yet; I know that there’s laundry that has yet to be folded over in the next room; and don’t even get me started on my bedroom — by the time I get in there every night, I’m too tired to give a care about keeping it in order. It just seems to be easier to just try and take care of one thing in life at a time and not worry about all the menial tasks of keeping things in order.

But is this the better way to live?
