  • Ask ourselves,

    問問自己,

  • "Is that really going to make me happier? Truly?"

    這樣我會比較快樂嗎? 真的嗎?

  • By all means,

    不過當然啦...

  • we should buy and own some great stuff.

    我們是應該有一些很棒的東西。

  • But we want stuff that we're going to love for years,

    是讓我們真正愛不釋手的,

  • not just stuff.

    而不是隨隨便便的東西。

  • Secondly, our new mantra:

    再來, 養成新的口頭禪:

  • small is sexy.

    小才是性感。

  • We want space efficiency.

    要有機能的空間。

  • We want things that are designed

    有設計的東西

  • for how they're used the vast majority of the time,

    可以用一輩子,

  • not that rare event.

    不是用一下下而已。

  • Why have a six burner stove

    沒有道理要買一個六口爐

  • when you rarely use three?

    方便堆疊的或是數位化的東西。

  • You can take paperwork,

    你可以把文件,

    同一個空間,

    一個小側桌

  • stretches out to seat 10.

    可以拉成為10人餐桌。

  • In the winning Life Edited scheme in a render here,

    這裡是個簡約生活的獲獎案例,

  • we combine a moving wall with transformer furniture

    活動牆和變形家具整合在一起

  • to get a lot out of the space.

    就可以挪出很多空間。

  • Look at the coffee table --

    你看這個咖啡邊桌--

  • it grows in height and width

    它可以拉開拉寬

  • to seat 10.

    最後變成10人座。

  • My office folds away,

    我辦公室可折疊起來,

  • easily hidden.

    很方便就藏起來。

  • My bed just pops out of the wall with two fingers.

    床可輕鬆從牆面拉下只用兩指功!

  • Guests? Move the moving wall,

    後面有幾個摺疊床。

  • And of course, my own movie theater.

    當然, 還有我的家庭劇院。

  • So I'm not saying that we all need to live

    我不是說每個人都只能生活在

  • in 420 sq. ft.

    420平方英呎的空間裏。

  • But consider the benefits of an edited life.

    不過想一想簡約生活的好處。

  • Go from 3,000 to 2,000,

    從3000減到2000平方英呎,

  • from 1,500 to 1,000.

    從1500降為1000平方英呎。

  • Most of us, maybe all of us,

    我們大部分人或許是所有的人,

  • are here pretty happily for a bunch of days

    這幾天都還過的蠻愉快的,

  • with a couple of bags,

    簡單帶幾個袋子,

  • maybe a small space, a hotel room.

    或許只是個小空間, 飯店客房,

  • So when you go home and you walk through your front door,

    所以這次當你回家踏進大門時,

  • take a second and ask yourselves,

    不防問問自己,

  • "Could I do with a little life editing?

    「怎麼樣可以過簡約的生活呢?

  • Would that give me a little more freedom?

    這樣可以帶來更多自由自嗎?

  • Maybe a little more time?"

    帶來更多時間?」
