When hidden away in a rarely used drawer, it is easy to lose track of accumulated items that may (or may not!) have lost their value. When moving from one location to another throughout my childhood, I kept material goods to a minimum. However, having lived in the same place for the last 15 years, I need to make concerted efforts to sort and purge regularly - and, even then, it often falls to the lower priority list.

In much the same way, I find the need to re-evaluate other daily habits - assessing their value and usefulness - every so often. The conscious attention to 'what works and what doesn't work' is a natural part of the circular evaluative model. Sometimes the intuitive process is in conflict with (and loses out to) that of standardization. Wonder why the 'data driven' models cannot be in better concert with the natural 'gut' interpretation of people? Naples, FL
