Life Hack for Getting Suddenly Awesome: Don’t Assume You Need Anything Until You’ve Proven It


Maybe you love high-speed internet. I do. And I would never try to make you feel guilty about that.

But everyone—everyone I know, anyway—has something they don’t need.

The trick is figuring out what those things are.

I, for one, prefer not having my own car. My husband and I share his, and I always find it enjoyable to get out of the house (I work almost exclusively from home) and pick him up from work or from the dentist.

It gives us extra time to chat.

It gets me out of the house.

I like it.

What about you? What things do you have that you can easily do without? I’d love to hear your comments.

“For my part, I could easily do without the post office.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

    I am constantly amazed at how much we two strangers have in common.

    Most cordially, Celia
