Simplicity is all about streamlining your life. Simplicity involves freeing your time, money, and energy so that you can pay more attention to what is important to you.
This ebook gives you practical (and sometimes radical) ideas to simplify your life. These ideas will help you manage your possessions, choose and arrange the place where you live, streamline your daily routine, support your dreams, and use resources to support your life's goals. Simplicity offers you savings in time, money, and energy. Most importantly, simplicity is fun because you get more time for your passions.
This ebook is not a quick fix, nor will it solve all your problems. I assume that you are ready and willing to make changes in your life and that you are willing to do some work and change your habits in order to benefit from the suggestions.
Not everything listed here will be for you. Think of it as a catalog of possible tactics you can use to simplify your life. I don't think that you will use every tactic, but I hope that you find many tactics in this ebook that genuinely simplify your life.
This ebook is for anyone who wants a simpler life
My goal is not to turn you into a monk or a cabin-dwelling misfit. Rather, I want to give you practical suggestions for making your life simpler. I want to help you see that you don't have to live without breathing room for yourself. You don't have to continue to accumulate things as a mark of progress. You don't have to live in a way that places stress on yourself or the environment. Most importantly, you don't have to get lost in the trivia of life at the expense of what matters to you.
