“The whole of life is but a moment of time. It is our duty, therefore to use it, not to misuse it.” —Plutarch
“Oh, I could never be a minimalist.” I’ve heard it a thousand times.
When I do, I first ask myself, “I wonder what misconception would bring someone to think that?” And second, I think to myself, “But you already are a minimalist. You just don’t know it. You see, we are all minimizing something.”
When I became minimalist:
- I found more time for the things that I love.
- I found more money for things of true worth.
- I found more energy for things of lasting value.
- I found more focus for things that brought real meaning.
- I found more opportunity to pursue my greatest potential.
Intentionally or unintentionally, we are all minimizing something. I just chose to minimize the physical possessions that were not adding any lasting value to my life.
