HINTS:
ruthlessly
extraneous
efficiency
digitized
So how can you live little? Three main approaches. First of all, you have to edit ruthlessly. We've got to clear the arteries of our lives. And that shirt that I hadn't worn in years? It's time for me to let it go. We've got to cut the extraneous out of our lives, and we've got to learn to stem the inflow. We need to think before we buy. Ask ourselves, "Is that really going to make me happier? Truly?" By all means, we should buy and own some great stuff. But we want stuff that we're going to love for years, not just stuff. Secondly, our new mantra: small is sexy. We want space efficiency. We want things that are designed for how they're used the vast majority of the time, not that rare event. Why have a six-burner stove when you rarely use three? So we want things that nest, we want things that stack, and we want it digitized. You can take paperwork, books, movies, and you can make it disappear .It's magic.
那我们怎样才能活得精简呢? 有三条大道。 第一,你必须铁面无情地去开始精简工作 就像去除掉我们身上的动脉瘤一样毫不留情 比如那件我好几年都没穿过的T恤嘛…… 是时候让它去了 我们得把生活中无关紧要的细枝末节修剪掉 并且学会逆潮流而动 我们应该三思而后消费 买东西之前问问自己: “买了它我真的能更加开心吗?” 诚然 我们应该购买并拥有一些很棒的东西 但我们更需要那些我们对其的喜爱经久不衰的东西 而不仅仅是任何物品 第二,也是我们的新口号: 小也有魅力 我们想要高空间利用率。 我们想要的用具 应该是依据多数情形下它们的使用方来设计的 而不是专为少数情形而设计的。 就好比一般你连三个灶头都很少同时使用 为什么要去买六灶头的燃气灶? 我们需要的器具应该能够大的套小的,或者能够层叠放置的 如果一样东西能数字化那就更好 那样你可以把所有文件 书籍、电影等等 都化为无形——就像变戏法一样。
