Lab Report: The Sock Experiment.

The Lab Report – 003 – “Socks Sucks”:

The motto is that you are not allowed to complain about not having “enough time” until you have certain systems in place that removes unnecessary complexity. Ones those are in place, then at least you have tried your best – And automation and simplification of everyday task is a good place to start.

Socks are a hassle – or to be more precise: to pair them is mindnumpingly boring and like all couples they break-up up, are gone for a whole and come back form new formation.

The idea is simple: buy all your socks at the same time and stick to one model. Ones a few of them starts to get worn the rest will usually follow, then throw all of them away and fill up with new ones. Repeat.


Short term effects: ⭐️⭐️

– Your closet becomes more bland.

Long term effects: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

– You avoid decision-making-fatigue by removing small everyday choices.

– Easy to do laundry. Pair however you want and you will still get a match.


Sustainability: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

– The drawback of having less variety can be remedied by having a small selection of colorful and cool on the side for special occasions.

– Shop big and seldom. Easy!


FINAL VERDICT: ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️

– It just works! Easy to execute and sustain, but the positive impact is hard to measure.

#5 “Into the Wild” by Jon Krakauer

—-—

Christopher McCandles was found dead in an abandoned bus in the Alaskan wilderness in 1992. He had left society and family behind, burned his money (literary) and set off on a journey to find the true essence of life, far away from job security, conformity and a monotonous middle class existence.

——- WHY THIS BOOK? ———

It’s a incredible story that stays with you long after you turned the last page.

————— IMPACT —————

Apart from forcing me to ask myself a lot of questions about how life ought to be lived, it also introduced me to the author Jon Krakauer. I have now started my third book by him, “Under the Banner of Heaven”, and earlier this year I read his Everest-book “Into Thin Air”. Good stuff!
