I've struggled to write this first post. Much of what I'm sharing has only ever been in my head.
I'm also worried I'll sound like a judgmental jerk.
But here's why I still wrote it: We live in a world that’s pretty overwhelming.
I don’t know about you, but I like to write at the computer, open a new Amazon package, surf the internet, watch Netflix, read blogs, dream of having a Tesla… the list goes on.
We really could all do with a little less — less stuff, less stress, less stimulation, less noise.
It’s not easy to do, but it is worth it.
Choosing less gives me more control and a clearer head.
A lot of it means owning less stuff but there’s — ironically — more to it than that. Having less lets me be flexible. It allows me to have a good account of what I have, own, and use.
Most importantly, choosing less gives me more.
It gives me more time to do what I love. It gives me more money. It gives me more freedom.
And that’s what I want to explore in this project: How can I help us do more by choosing less?
