July 27, 2011 – T minus four. (Gifts.)

One too many.

Another lesson of the RID project is that I hang on to things that were given to me as gifts – even some things I don’t want, don’t need, or don’t have a place for.

No more.

It starts today – I’m giving away this Jawbone Jambox I received as a gift at TED. (Don’t bother telling me you want it, it’s already been claimed.)

You see, I already have one…and while in the past, I would’ve held on to it “just in case….” I won’t anymore.

So – as I get RID of it today, I remind myself to look at all gifts as I would purchases. If they don’t fit me, be gracious, thank the giver…and move on.
