As part of my aim to do things properly, I have to face changes to that which I did before.
When it comes to behavioural change, much of that is driven by desire. Desire is not as independent as you might think —you can influence desire by pre-empting certain events that affect desire: by choosing to be somewhere, choosing to agree to something, choosing to buy something.
Money is our vote in the economy.
If we buy low quality food, we’re voting for poor health.
If we buy lots of mediocre items, we’re voting for mediocrity.
So here’s a statement I’m getting behind, in the name of “change”:
It’s very simple: buy less overall, buy items that truly meet a purpose.
It has taken me a certain amount of living to get to the point where I can tolerate the choices I make - that is, I can now be happy with buying less because I can appreciate what I’m buying.
