For the most part I am a pretty nice person.. usually politically correct, and when there is ‘nothing nice to say’ I try to not say anything at all. … but you might need extreme measures…
Really, I am terrified of offending people. But sometimes a more direct approach works better.
Lots of the great people in history had a strong opinion and were okay with sharing it.
So here it goes…
Get rid of the crap that is clogging your life! YOU DON’T NEED IT
Lots of times simplicity or minimalist bloggers talk about little changes, and baby steps. (I do this all the time). This slow, progressive, move toward minimalism might be for you. Maybe if you just had a few less things your life wouldn’t feel so congested. (and if your one of these people, or if you get offended easily, you can come back next week)
You need a WHOLE LOT less!
Everyone is full of excuses – pets, children, tea cup collections. But most of it is just habit… and habit is a dumb excuse…
If you want to live a different life… you might really have to live differently.
Maybe you need more than just small changes.
Maybe You Need Extreme Measures
Maybe minimalism or really changing your way of life isn’t for you. Maybe you just need small changes and you will see a big difference… but maybe extreme measures are in order.
You don’t have to do what I do, and I will probably not do what you do, but what if we both REALLY right-sized our life. Not just question a few things, but really thought outside the box.
When we started adopting minimalism thought we just needed to clean out a few closets… but that wasn’t the case. I wish now that I had a friend (who could say things in love but still be direct) who really called me on the stuff I was trying to keep. ‘Really, you REALLY need that?’
Then instead of downsizing my stuff for 2 years and going through everything I owned about 1000 times it could have been done in less time and I could have spent my time doing something more productive.
… or I would have hated them..
Do you want extreme change?
Extreme changes in your money, your time, and your growth? Then maybe you have some extreme changes you need to make. Change isn’t always easy and is usually lots of hard work.
Are you making the changes you want? Are you getting the results you want? … do you need to take extreme measures?
Thanks so much for reading!
