A quick run of the math looks something like this. We spend eight hours a day on average as an American at work; we spend an additional 45 minutes commuting to work each direction and at times, we spend portions of our weekend at work. There’s overtime, emergencies, and other events that force us to complete work on off-hours. So it looks something like this: we spend at least one-third of our life at work. Additionally, if you want to have a healthy sleep pattern, we spend one-third of our life sleeping. Put another way, we spent half of our week hours in our professional field.

It seems like that all of those tangible possessions we have own us - which it should not be the case. Take time in making an evaluation of your life. Talk to your spouse and figure out what are the things that are costing you your peace. Then make a bold decision in letting go of the things that is costing you your peace.
