The Pursuit of Happiness
This is from a post from Dive Into Mark that’s no longer around, because in 2011 Mark Pilgrim removed his entire online presence:

1. Stop buying stuff you don’t need
2. Pay off all your credit cards
3... Get rid of all the stuff that doesn’t fit in your house/apartment storage lockers, etc.
4. Get rid of all the stuff that doesn’t fit on the first floor of your house attic, garage, etc.
5. Get rid of all the stuff that doesn’t fit in one room of your house
6. Get rid of all the stuff that doesn’t fit in a suitcase
7. Get rid of all the stuff that doesn’t fit in a backpack
8. Get rid of the backpack

I’m working on step 4.

In the People Are Awesome column today...
Jennifer Foster of Florence, AZ was visiting Times Square with her husband Nov. 14 when they saw a shoeless man asking for change. She writes, “Right when I was about to approach, one of your officers came up behind him. The officer said, ‘I have these size 12 boots for you, they are all-weather. Let’s put them on and take care of you.’ The officer squatted down on the ground and proceeded to put socks and the new boots on this man. The officer expected NOTHING in return and did not know I was watching*. I have been in law enforcement for 17 years. I was never so impressed in my life. I did not get the officer’s name. It is important, I think, for all of us to remember the real reason we are in this line of work. The reminder this officer gave to our profession in his presentation of human kindness has not been lost on myself or any of the Arizona law enforcement officials with whom this story has been shared.”
Our thanks to the Fosters for their attention and appreciation, and especially to this officer, who remains anonymous.
