I’m going to give you a clear picture of what life could be like if you made the choice to go just a little more minimal. Minimalistic lifestyle is something that can sound a little boring or a little unfulfilling for some folks – but that normally just means they don’t understand it.
Instead, imagine that you’ve decided to prioritize quality over quantity and that you want to start doing less with more. Rather than yearning after every item you see in magazines or on TV, you have decided exactly what matters to you and you know how much money you need to get it.
For many people, this can mean getting into a smaller home or maybe even a more affordable area. Perhaps near friends and family in order to cut the costs of travel.
Right away, you can cut back your living costs by $400 to $1K dollars a month between you and a partner. This makes a huge difference to how wealthy you ‘feel’ and it means you can afford to do a job that doesn’t include huge amounts of stress and one that doesn’t involve working incredibly long hours.
It means you won’t struggle with debt, or with lost mortgage repayments. And it omplies that you’ll be ale to travel more!
A lot of individuals will find the thought of doing less at work hard. This is where they get their sense of fulfilment and progress after all!
Except do you? Why is it that you feel the need to work for someone else to feel like you’re doing well?
Sure, being a manager is exciting and all (is it?) but if the company is just supplying packaging for a cereal company… is this really something that you take such pride in that you’re willing to sacrifice time with your family?
Imagine an alternative scenario where your sense of reward and progress comes from painting, or raising your child, or exploring the world!
