8 steps to Happiness

In words of Mark Pilgrim…

1. Stop buying stuff you don’t need
2. Pay off all your credit cards
3. Get rid of all the stuff that doesn’t fit in your house/apartment (storage lockers, etc.)
4. Get rid of all the stuff that doesn’t fit on the first floor of your house (attic, garage, etc.)
5. Get rid of all the stuff that doesn’t fit in one room of your house
6. Get rid of all the stuff that doesn’t fit in a suitcase
7. Get rid of all the stuff that doesn’t fit in a backpack
8. Get rid of the backpack

I don’t know if I’m capable to do number 1 on the list yet. Though I understand what the steps mean. They all take you to detachment. That’s the word. Said by our sages and saints over and over again.

“Detachment”.
