Simplify your life the Bruce Sterling way! | ITworld

Simplify your life the Bruce Sterling way! | ITworld. From the article:

Categorize everything you own into one of the following categories:

1. Beautiful things. (Do you display it or share it with others?)

2. Emotionally meaningful things. (Does it have a story attached to it that you want to tell others about it?)

3. Well-made, functional tools you use. (Don’t accept anything that’s broken in any way; buy the best tools to reward “best practices”)

4. Everything else.

Sterling says 80% of what you own falls into category 4. This is the stuff you get rid of.
