38! I’ll turn a glorious 38 soon.
It’s going to be a great natal year–I can already feel it. Perhaps it will be good luck for you, too.

I went to IKEA to find something to use an RGB MR16 low voltage lamp as an uplight which could stand on the floor.
- Take a simple round ceiling lamp armature (most of them will do)

An Unclutterer reader wrote to us asking a surprisingly common question:
I’m currently getting ready to move out of state. I’m retired, and am downsizing everything in my life. I have a piano that my father gave me when I was in high school. He passed away over 20 years ago. I’m moving to a small beach cottage on the Oregon coast.

I just moved the closing date of a major business deal for astrological reasons. Our lawyers had already dealt with a lot of back n’ forthing and a last minute twist/untwist. The finish line was in sight, but I was about to yank it. People might be understandably flummoxed.

Sarah and Scott are at an exciting time in their lives: after incorporating regular travel into their routine, they’re now transitioning from a rooted life in America to a more nomadic lifestyle. Here’s their story.

So you want to change the world. You’re not alone. Deep down, I think most people want to have a positive impact on society and make the world a better place for themselves and others.

It has been a bit of a losing struggle trying to stay on top of the new found clutter when our home welcomed our first child, Michael. He recently started sitting at the table with us and eating solids, and we soon found that our table was constantly occupied with toys, bibs, and other randomness.
This article is from returning staff writer Tim Sullivan. I first became part of the Get Rich Slowly community six years ago. I lived in Austin, Texas, at the time and had to travel a lot between jobs. I say that I drove a scooter to save money on gas; but really, it was because I couldn’t afford a reliable car.
You’ve heard the old saying right?
“All great leaders are readers.”
… well, it’s true. And I’m reminded of it at least once a week, when I interview an inspiring author, entrepreneur, or thought leader on my show. I ask my guests a series of questions about what contributed to their success and ability to become such great leaders.
I’m fortunate to work with great partners, including a wonderful design studio right in Southeast Portland called Jolby & Friends.
I was recently with the Jolby crew on a site visit, and one of them mentioned something about how they deliberately operate their studio on an “80% capacity” model.
