How to Live Small
ELIMINATE.The first step to getting what you want is having the courage to get rid of what you don’t. Surround yourself with the things you love. Discard the rest.
Beauty, style, and harmony depend on simplicity -- and simplicity is making the journey of this life with just baggage enough.
CURATE.Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. Keep only those few items, activities, commitments and relationships in your life that are essential to your happiness.
This is the only way to ensure you will have the time and energy to dedicate to what matters most.
ACTIVATE.Begin now. Don't wait to enjoy a life filled with wonder, brimming with creativity and delightful moments of pure joy.
Life is an epic journey. Your journey.
Join the revolution. Have less. Do more. Be more.
WORK & PLAY
Work is the difference you make in the world, so utilize your talents! Stretch and grow them. Expressing yourself through art, music, writing and other creative pursuits will help you to find your place in the world. Work and play are the best path to becoming more centered, feeling more accomplished and being happier.
One of the biggest stress-producing aspects of modern life is financial worry. Take charge of your finances and move from working for your money to making money work for you. Begin with eliminating unnecessary expenses, since it's always smarter to avoid spending than to find ways to make more.
