It’s astonishing the amount of stuff that gets amassed. Carrie and I have been tempting ourselves to make big changes, but given how big a project that always turns out to be, we seem to get sidetracked a lot. That’s where a strategy like this could come in handy.
I’m curious though: When you’ve got drawer after drawer full of wires and cables of all kinds, do you really get to give yourself daily credit for discarding a single connecting cord? Maybe that’s the beauty of making it one thing a day: No matter how small it is, it’s now gone for good.
The downside is knowing that it’ll take approximately one million years to go through them all.
