Downsizing


Downsizing, originally uploaded by davidjay13.

I've been trying to downsize my carry on a bit and these new Shure SE
420 headphones are awesome and take up only a fraction of the space
that my Bose headphones take up. I also have opted to simply bring the
iPhone instead of a phone and an iPod.

I wonder what other areas of my life contain things that I'm
"carrying" around but don't really need.

Are you weighing yourself down with technology, toys, people or even
beliefs that should be left behind? This is a good time of year to get
back to asking yourself those all important WHY questions!

There's no way you would've wanted to travel with me and my three carryons today:) I needed EVERYTHING!

As an assistant...could I be considered a carry on? :)

Yeah, I sure liked life before having to buy showit this, and showitdvd that, and lightroom presets this and that...yep, you weighed me down brothah.
your philosophies and your preaching about downsizing makes you sound like a bit of a KNOB. A bit of an arrogant smarty pants. A bit of a wankah.
Is your life SO empty that you have to fill it by taking crappy photographs (aren't you a pro?) of headphones and then posting it on the net? Perhaps you should spend more time working on keeping a girlfriend than on telling people to downsize - what works for you may infact not work for everyone else.
and get a bucket of water, the fires are coming.

Why are you so mean Shooter. DJ does what he does and people listen to what works for them, if you don't like the contents on here why do you waste so much time here. Find another board man or make your own. You are such a Grinch! Be nice, ok, don't steal a brother's joy.

I love this time of year for the same reasons, time to refocus and rethink the past year a bit. Lots of change coming this year and I'm happy about it.

SS, right, because that snap of the headphones would have been SO much more impactful with some noise reduction, color pop, and cross-processing. @@

Of course it bums me out when people attack my life's work but I'm just doing my best to help others ...and it's my belief that if I continue to pursue that and help enough people then I will experience a lot of joy in my life.

SS, if you don't like the blog and DJ... Why not stay away and don't look? Nobody is making you do anything and your rude and negative complaint is uncalled for. What happened to "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all"?

Sarah Barlow said...

Yeah! I LOVE this part of the year because of those awesome "why" questions we start to ask ourselves! It really helps so much to get refocused and concentrating on EXACTLY what we are supposed to be doing!!

BTW..I gave my mom a whole outsourcing sermon this morning...and I think I talked her into getting a maid and a cook! haha!:)

Patricia Stein said...

Great questions for personal introspection.
DJ, you do so much for people. We love you.
One thingI won't do, I won't be downsizing my exposure to you and the community you've built.
That's for sure!

that is so weird! I just started using the Bose on-ear headphones and ditched my Shures! Well I didn't ditch them I left them at the gym!

Chris Humphreys said...

So if you're not using the Bose headphones you want to give 'em to me? :) LOL!

I know it's tough that nobody reads your blog and that you haven't figured out how to be successful (and it's obviously killing you or why would you anonymously attack someone who is ), but seriously... some village out there is missing it's idiot. Go wander back home....

sharpshooter said...

ha!
if you guys only knew who i really was. ACTUALLY many of you in southern cali already know me personally.
And you are right no one reads my blog because I don't have one.
