The Edited Life

By Janine Adams

On the email list for the National Association of Professional Organizers, I saw a link to a TED talk by Graham Hill called Less stuff, more happiness.

In the talk, Hill extolls the virtues of living with less. Hill, who started a project calledLifeEdited.org, makes a compelling argument. His main three guidelines are:

  1. Edit ruthlessly
  2. Think small
  3. Make multifunctional

He suggests that living with less gives you more freedom and time. That makes a lot of sense to me. I see how possessions tie people down and actually prevent them from living the life they want to lead.

Here’s the video. Enjoy!
