Thoughts on “Minimalism: Living a Meaningful Life” Chapter 2 8/19/2012

For the next 7 weeks, starting on Monday 8/6, I am going to read a book called “Minimalism: Live A Meaningful Life” by Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus. I am reading one chapter a week (as suggested) and see where I end up. I want to invite you to join me for the next 7 weeks if it sounds interesting to you. Post what jumps out at you, I would love to compare notes!

Chapter 2 of Minimalism: Live a Meaningful Life

Turn your Shoulds into Musts!
“We encourage people to create must lists for various areas of their lives (i.e., create a list of things on which you have procrastinated, and turn those shoulds into musts – find the leverage so you can take action.)”

I know what I must do.
I know I should make a “must” list.
I know I should plan my “musts” into my day. Be intentional.
I know when I don’t feel like it, I still need to take care of my “musts”.

It’s hard, but lets do this! One day at a time, one week at a time, one year at a time.

I have changes I need to make and so do you.

Chapter 3 here we come!
