View your belongings as temporary visitors. This is how the Jedi stylist (rule #2) exists with the belongings necessary for living.
Choose wisely. Only acquire things that retain value, or serve you and take care of them. It may seem like I’m stating the obvious but in our fast pace culture we tend to lack consideration for these timeless rules of life.
How do you know if something will retain value? If it was designed well, it should. If it was built before your grandma was born, most likely it will still be here when your granddaughter inherits it.
The guardian approach is about appreciating that a well-designed chair will last longer than your mortal life. The poorly designed one, only a fraction.
Service the objects that will continue to serve.
