Some key take aways that I got from this book:
You need to really understand what your version of simplify means before you start this journey.
Know what really makes you happy, if you don't know, find out.
When you know what makes you happy, make it a priority.
Sometimes you just have to release and let it go.
It's OK to say no to yourself and to others.
Is it really important?
Make it work for you, do not become a slave to it.
This book is definitely a good read and probably has some value for everyone. Even if you are not into your version of simplification, there should be some valuable take aways in this book for you.
Richards book is an easy read and quite short, but it hits on points that can truly change your life. I think anyone that wants to live a more simple and focused life, will benefit from reading it. Thanks for giving me something to really think about and aim for.
In this, the first volume, he talks about fixing the inside of yourself as the most important step in your minimalist journey. For example, to live a truly simple life, you need to have some understanding of your purpose as well as the ability to release negative emotions. He gives you great tips on how to become a more productive person and reduce your stress. Most importantly, he provides wisdom on making the paradigm shift required to live a minimalist life.
The only big critique I would make about this volume (sorry, it’s hard for me to call a work so short a “book”) is that Cary needs to comb through it a couple more times and make some edits. Other than that, this is a great place to start if you are a wannabe minimalist.
I learned some new ways to look at things in my life and found myself nodding in agreement as i read. Mr. Richards says he is not a spiritual teacher but I disagree, and I am a spiritual teacher and Licensed Spiritual Healer. His philosophy is sound, and non-judgmental, but encourages the reader to consider each decision, not just do things out of habit. I look forward to boo two. Thank you.
I also appreciate how he took the time to write about staying in 'The Present' and how focusing on your present moment at anytime, will also simplify your life.
