Chase Jarvis uploaded a thought-provoking short video on the value of experiences over stuff. And if you want to buy stuff, please review where and whom your gift benefits.
We are in the midst of a full on surge of mass consumerism called Christmas that can leave one feeling addled and empty inside. I wrote a year back about scaling back on gifts and giving more of my time to loved ones. It appears I am not alone in this attempt to find the real gifts of this season. Chase makes an excellent case for sharing experiences and less stuff.
After all, stuff goes away but memories of experiences linger in our hearts.
What are your plans to bring sanity back into this season? Feel free to opine in the comment section. Please note comments are moderated and subject to my approval.
