This article was a very good. While the man in the article made a ton of money at a young age in Seattle during the .com boom, he tells a story that will make one take a closer look in the mirror. I know when I get to my apartment tonight I will be looking around closer at the materials I have asking myself how much of it is necessary?
I am a firm disbeliever of the punch clock logic and common misconceptions from people my age that since I am 25 we are now somehow old, stuck, and should be getting ready for child rearing, settling down, and looking for a mortgage and a car payment. However, I hope to continue to pursue happiness, travel, take advantage of nature and what’s here in my own backyard, move toward better health, managing my money better and continue to educate myself through media, communication and most importantly life experiences.
I think what I took from it, was a personal look of how I could do better. Carbon footprint aside, I have to do a better job of getting rid of clutter, junk and items that I do not use that take up space.
