BOOK

Minimalism, live a meaningful life by Joshua Fields Milburn & Ryan Nicodemus

What is it about?

Joshua and Ryan are ex-corporate seniors who were successful in life through materialist standards: 6 figure-salaries, luxury cars, huge houses…But they were totally unhappy in life. Always trying to make more money to find happiness, in an old and chimeric definition of the notion. One day, Joshua discovered minimalism, the power of “Less is more”. And started his journey through happiness and meaning. His friend Ryan, who’s always been as miserable as him wanted to know his secret. Joshua introduced him to the concept. Since then they’ve been drafting along the river of essentialism and have come a long way. Their website, theminimalists.com, is followed by 4 million readers and the two partners travel the world, sharing these formidable words of wisdom: “Love people and use things. Because the opposite never works.” This book tells the story of how they eliminated excess material things to focus on more important “things”: health, relationships, passion, growth and contribution.

Learning to focus on what really matters in life will help you save time, money, energy and focus on what’s meaningful to you. 100% Self-Care.
