editing isn’t just about words

editing your life not just wordsCheck this TED talk out. This man, Graham Hill, is a writer and designer with some very interesting views. In a nutshell, less equals more in his world.

His argument is very simple:

Americans have 30% more space than they used to. And the storage industry is growing at a rapid rate.

Yet all this extra stuff simply means we are spending more, damaging the environment and not seeing any increase in happiness.

So, he argues, get rid of those shirts you’re clinging on to. Get those CDs and DVDs off the shelves and onto your computer. Invest in the multifunctional. In short, edit your life.

I hold my hands up. I’m guilty – time to do some wardrobe editing. I really don’t need all those running shoes.
