We have to start our own fire

Could we astound ourselves to shed 90% of our stuff?


We have to start our own fire.

If lost in the wilderness in freezing temperatures, to avoid freezing to death overnight gather 10 times as much firewood as you think you’ll need.

Very time consuming.


No. Yet it is the right strategy you would need to survive the night without freezing to death.

This may seem unrelated to everyday civilized life.

Be 10 times more organized with our possessions than we think we need to be. Otherwise, we might kill our peace.
