“Enjoy the satisfaction that comes from doing little things well.” — H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

I really like office supplies. I like the colors, the designs, and the way they smell, fresh out of a package. I like that they enable me to produce beautiful things, organized things, creative things, necessary things. Even though most people I know use digital calendars, my personal calendar is pencil and paper, and I live by it.

This weekend, I got a new pencil sharpener with titanium — titanium! — blades. I sat at my desk for twenty minutes, sharpening pencils, creating a colorful, perfectly pointy graphite bouquet. The feeling of satisfaction I got from such a simple task was probably absurd to some, but for me, it was enough.

This week, share a photo of something that brings you satisfaction. It can be monumental, minor, or something in between. We can’t wait to see your contributions.
