Embrace and set constraints - everything is a bag and has a category and pattern. Dont let your defaults rule fool you from making decisions early
Someone once said. Life is an empty bag and it's your job to fill it purposely and wisely.
For a long time I believed that meant to fill it richly, with great friends and work that really, honestly mattered to those I serve.
What I missed is that the choice where something belongs is a choice you make BEFORE choosing and creating space for the bag, not when it's too full for effective work or whatever the purpose of the bag is.
if you know what each bag is for, and its containers choosing to NOT move it to another bag instead of dealing with it is a lot easier once it gets fuller than ideal.
Not having made the choice early and trying to squeeze your favorite into a full bag is really really emotionally hard. Yet that's how I and most I know often do it.
Buying a new bag/storage isnt a long-term solution.
