My friend Tantek put up this very interesting post a while back.
He came up with some categories for organizing his life:
You should read the whole post to get his thoughts on it. But I found this framework to be really thought-provoking.
Sometimes, a new perspective, a different way to approach the problem, can give you a place to begin. So, I’ve been trying out this new categorization idea. Taking a look around my life, it becomes apparent to me that there are some things I want more of (to grow), some things I want less of (to prune) and some things I really want to get rid of altogether (to close).
It is one of my life-long habits, to look at the shape of my life and try to adjust it to what I really want. It is very easy for all of us to get into the cog of doing what is next on the list.
But what about evaluating the list?
So these categories give some tools to evaluate the list.
Thanks, Tantek! You have inspired me to get closure on cleaning my patio.
