Low cost living

Now that I'm planning to venture out on my own (and hopefully, the store I'm planning, will get ready in 2 and a half months), I realize I've to cut down on superfluous spending. Not that I feel that way most of the time when I spend. But yes, guess I've come to a point where I really have to prioritize and work in the most disciplined manner possible.

Another realization is the fact that the more space you get the more conscious choices you have to make. And there's nobody to blame or hold responsible for your decisions. Freedom in that sense always always comes with enormous responsibility towards your own self.

I'm trying to look for avenues where my physical presence isn't necessarily needed for 9-10 hours in a day. My physical presence might be required only when there is work of that sort.

The last two days have been rather disconcerting. Not having a lot to work on (as in 'the work given by or coming from someone else') is pretty scary. And I observe myself getting panicky coz of the space I've created for myself. I have to make choices. The decisions. Coz they will determine how monies flow :).

Crucial point in the journey. Will keep you posted.

And ya, now (at least for some foreseeable future) the base is A'bad.

Yes, these've garnered greatest eyeballs on my blog. I'm sure all who've landed on my blog searching for these were lured by the headlines and disappointed by the content ;). An experiment of sorts, it's got good result. Let me call this the short-term dynamics and the dominance of 'baser' instincts. Rest you can infer.

Have a great Monday!

David Damron on filling time

Just a few moments back I read this guest post by David Damron (of The Minimalist Path) on ZenHabits. Fantastic read. Simple to apply and see the result for yourself. So, am publishing the same post here. Spread the message far and wide (for it is mighty important) :).

In the post below, forget the word Materialism. It isn't such a 'spiritual' lesson after all; though it could be if you want to take it that way. My point is it might just help you to set some worthy goals for yourself.
