21 | Sunday Sift ⏳

Happy Sunday and welcome back!  

I've been away for the past 10 days - revisiting friends and spending time with family. I didn't realize how much I needed time away until I left.

Last weekend, I skipped my weekly commitment to the Sunday Sift because I was in Dallas with several of my best friends, and that felt significantly more important than this newsletter. I hope you can understand and will not hold the absence against me!

So, without further delay, please enjoy this week's curation.

💭 Quotes On My Mind

What if more stuff often just equals more stress? More hours at the office, more debt, more years working in a job I don’t feel called to, more time wasted cleaning and maintaining and fixing and playing with and organizing and reorganizing and updating all that junk I don’t even need.

-John Mark Comer

Marketing theory says that people are driven by fear, by the promise of exclusivity, by guilt and greed, and by the need for approval. Advertising technology, armed with market research and sophisticated psychology, aims to throw us off balance emotionally—and then promises to resolve our discomfort with a product.

-Vicki Robin


❓ Question

Consider everything "non-essential" you've ever purchased... Fast forward six months later... Was it worth it?
