Time to Downsize?


If you haven't checked out Escape from Cubicle Nation, give it a test drive. Pamela Slim writes some really good stuff on this blog mainly about freeing yourself from the corporate/work chains and experiencing a more meaningful life. There's lots of great resources there as well. BTW, I'm not being paid to advertise this blog (unfortunately). In fact, Pamela doesn't even know my name or that I even exist. I just think anytime someone is creating quality stuff that might benefit others, it should be passed on. You might call it sort of an unwritten civic duty.

She posted an article today on downsizing your life to get more out of it. We see so many people trying to live the "American dream" these days, and there's nothing wrong with that, but at what cost (financial and emotional) is this worth it? And is the American dream really your dream, or just what society and advertising leads us to believe we should be chasing after? Check out this latest article.

Matt, your check is in the mail!

I now know your name and that you exist. And I appreciate the plug very much. Civic duty linking is a nice concept, and I try to do it as often as I can myself.

May good karma come your way!

All the best,
-Pam
