I listened to a James Altucher podcast today where he talked about his latest minimal living project. He was living in a house with his wife last year when they decided to get rid of most of what they own in order to simplify.
I’m all about simplifying when I’m not busy making my life more complicated. Continue reading
I love paper. I love beautiful books and fountain pens. I love writing things down and turning the pages in my planner. It’s sad that handwriting has become so obsolete that they don’t even teach in schools anymore. Continue reading
