Save yourself the fucking bother.

A lot of acquisition of crap arises from this type of reasoning: “If I’m to be a [insert job / personality type / dominant characteristics] type of person, I want to make it easy for myself and I want to have the trimmings which go with it. So it makes sense for me to get an ipad / buy a new iron and ironing board so I can iron my shirts in a hurry in the morning / get this exercise bike so I stay fit inspite of the hours I work.”

Might it be easier just to decide NOT to be the stereotypical [insert job / personality type / dominant characteristics] type of person, and opt for a lifestyle altogether more enjoyable?
