Discovered a great web site

postumOctober 24, 2007

I've really been enjoying reading zenhabits.net. There are lots of great organizing tips, with a fresh point of view.

Just one of the great ideas I got from there was to use google docs for word processing. I can store all my documents online and then work on them from any computer - including dh's Mac! This is a lifesaver for me, as I might do writing from home, the local library, or my workplace.

Below is a link to "72 ideas to simplify your life" from zen habits, but look around the site and you'll find much much more.

(I'm not advertising the site or anything, just wanting to share!)

Here is a link that might be useful: Simple Living Manifesto: 72 Ideas to Simplify Your Life

Postum,

Thanks for sharing the website. Read quite a bit of it, but see there is so much great info there. Bookmarked it and will study it. Have been trying to do a lot of the suggestions, like getting rid of so much stuff and making my life more simple.

I felt more zen-like just reading the list. It seems to coorespond with where I see my life going.

And yes, google docs is great.

That's a great site. I'm looking forward to reading more and implementing some of his ideas.

I recently heard of google docs on NPR. I need to look into this -- thanks for reminding me.

What a great site with some wonderful links. Isn't it interesting to read others' ways of putting into words this need to declutter. Order, serenity, simplicity - whatever it is called - I want more of it. And less stuff.

Thanks, Postum!

Thanks for the link. It looks like great reading. I saved it so I can read it in bits, and not become overloaded with information burnout.

I have recently been doing quite a bit of reading on Zen and Buddist way of seeing the world. It is very liberating. The link you provided really sums up the whole philosophy and puts things in layman's terms in an easy to follow format. Thanks again.

Great site! Now all I have to do is resist the desire to print out the pages to read later...paper is my clutter nemesis.

I loved reading zen habits! My father's side of the family is Buddhist, so the zen way of thinking is very comforting to me. I'm trying to implement these habits more into my life. It helps, especially when my schedule is stressful.
