Collect experiences, not objects!

Hey there everybody.

Last time I talked about simple ways you can market your product or business idea inexpensively.

Here’s the link if you’d like to take another look at what we discussed.

This pairs well with the concept of the side hustle also discussed previously.

But today I’d like to talk about changing our mindset and truly pushing ourselves in the direction of living the life we all deserve.

It seems like so many people these days fill the holes in their lives with physical objects instead of going out and really doing the things they dream of.

That’s where you hear about those “impulse buys.”

Well I’m at a point in my life where I don’t want to sit here and accumulate dust catchers and debt until I die.

It just doesn’t seem like real life to me.

I want to go places, see things, meet new people just like me who want something other than this empty consumerism until the end of our lives.

There’s something that strikes me as odd seeing all these nice, scenic photographs on Instagram from the other side of my iPhone.

Sure, they’re’ beautiful photographs and I get that whole endorphin release from seeing them. Don’t get me wrong.

But it just doesn’t beat being there and feeling the sunshine over Cancun, the waves crashing gently in the background.

So what I’m starting to do is sell off some of my extra possessions, starting today. I listed some on the LetGo app and also on Ebay for certain other items.

I’m looking to downsize my possessions, starting with the least practical things. This happens to be things like poker chip sets, movies, and stereo equipment I no longer need.

All I need is my phone, laptop, and a small speaker so I can enjoy music while I read or focus on side work.

So what do you think?

Am I crazy? Or is there something more to life than accumulating material things?

It’s certainly worth giving a thought.

See you around next time.

My name is Drew Anderson and I'm a manager at an accounting firm. I don't really see this as being my dream career, so I always look for ways to improve my life and find newer, more exciting opportunities.
