the Simple Back in Life
phones, fax machines, computers, and voice mail. They're all supposed
to make it easier for a guy to do what a guy's got to do.
too often, though, our so-called digital assistants seem to conspire
instead to push the pace of life past break-neck speed. Sometimes,
what we need is less, not more. Less can be a pretty hard thing to
come by these days, though, so here are 10 tips for putting the simple
back in your life.
Cell-Phone Calls for Parking Lots
You can give yourself some peace while driving by asking callers to
wait for a call back once you've reached a spot where it's safe to
Those Who Matter Most
Much as we'd like to save the world, the place to start is with
our loved ones. Learn to say "no" when the call for help
comes from coworkers or friends of friends.
for Small Groups
You'll get a lot more done working with one or two others than joining
a committee that gets bogged down in protocol.
Subordinates Do Their Jobs
Put away that "if you want it done right" attitude, and let
them do their jobs—helping you do yours.
and Label Old Papers
If you're not sure why you'd ever want it but can't part with it
now, label the box with today's date. After a year has passed,
way without looking inside. On the other hand, if it's taxes, warranties,
or something else important, label it with today's date and "keep."
Up After Yourself for Better Sex
Spend a week observing what you do that she has to clean up after,
and make amends. Prepare to be pleasantly surprised.
Advantage of Automatic Debit Opportunities
Many of the companies that send you monthly bills would be delighted
to debit your checking account automatically. It may feel like loss
of control, but consider what your hourly wage is for the unpleasant
task of paying bills.
If you stick to grays, dark blues, and browns that mix well, you can
get by with less clothing.
to Commute Off Rush Hour
Talk to your supervisor about coming in and leaving an hour earlier.
You'll save as much peace of mind as you save time.
A moderately intense aerobic workout—one that takes you out of
reach of the phone—lets the day's details float by with relaxing
detachment. When you finish, they'll somehow seem less worrisome, and
life will start to put on a simple face.
