“Today is the second Wednesday I’ve taken off since I took the decision to ‘minimise’ my working life and go from a 5-day working week to a 4-day working week.”
Something that’s become quite apparent in the first couple of weeks into my minimalism journey, is the fact I’m making more deliberate choices – adding action, so to speak.
With inspiration from The Minimalists and their book, I’m starting to shed the excess from my life. The idea is that once the excess is gone, I can concentrate on what actually matters: my professional ambitions, my family, my friends, my hobbies. My writing.
I’ve already started to list a few material items on eBay and intend to either sell or donate about a third of my book collection.
