"For me, the idea of living small in particular means figuring out what enough is and taking joy from having enough, rather than chasing my tail hoping I'll someday be happy if I just have a little more. Enough doesn't just refer to money or things -- figuring out enough goes for everything humans do from work to play to love to stimulation. Figuring out what is enough and achieving satisfaction with it is hard but can be a key to achieving a sense of meaning on a personal level. If you're always seeking more, you'll never get to the pot of gold and you'll always feel a sense of dissatisfaction."
Those provocative words from Slingshot writer PB Floyd ring in my ears. Would it shock you to know that Max Levchin
used to compete with HotOrNot founder James Hong to see who was the most frugal?
Living Small. It's a concept worth thinking about.
