We live in a society in which bigger is almost always better. Corporations assume they have to grow or die. Industries do the same. We are told over and over again that we have to do more, make more, have more.
How many people do you know who measure their success by the numbers? Their income, their Facebook friends, the value of their houses or 401(k) plans?
Why is that?
When is enough enough?
Sometimes there can be value in buying a smaller house, or taking a job for less income. Sometimes less stuff means more freedom.
Sometimes the best thing is to do what you love, rather than thinking all the stuff is going to save you.
