1) Prioritize lifestyle design
Make all your dreams come true
2) Chase that comparison moment
Always buy the new thing
3) Buy, not rent
Buy the house, boat, etc.
4) Internalize your new status
Celebrate your new status and relax
5) Be a connoisseur
Insist on only having the finest
6) Get to know your possessions
Spend time learning about possessions getting them just right
7) Acclimatize to comfort
Eliminate all discomfort and blame others when life seems hard
Most things may never happen: this one will,
And realisation of it rages out
In furnace-fear when we are caught without
People or drink. Courage is no good:
It means not scaring others. Being brave
Lets no one off the grave.
Death is no different whined at than withstood.
Slowly light strengthens, and the room takes shape.
It stands plain as a wardrobe, what we know,
Have always known, know that we can’t escape,
Yet can’t accept. One side will have to go.
Meanwhile telephones crouch, getting ready to ring
In locked-up offices, and all the uncaring
Intricate rented world begins to rouse.
The sky is white as clay, with no sun.
Work has to be done.
Postmen like doctors go from house to house.
