When less is more
My book, Reimagined, is about the importance of simplifying life to it's most basic elements, the redesigning your life strategically from that point. For many people who live exceptional lives, this also includes the physical notions of house and home. Like many today, I have accumulated a great deal over the years – and clutter is something I simply cannot deal with, but unfortunately accept in my life to some degree. Even for myself, however, one of the hardest things to address in my life is all the s"stuff" I've accumulated over the years.
What I do know is I could easily do without most of it. As a sailor, I learned early on that not having so much stuff is rather liberating. There's less to care for, fix,repair, and carry along with me. There's also less to keep me from experiencing my world. For some reason, however, I have some problems carrying that over to my house and home.
In this clip, Graham Hill explores a rather radical exploration of why having less might mean more to you and your happiness. Although I am not sure I am ready to go to his level, many of the ideas and motivations he shares provide insightful thoughts that are worthy of personal exploration.
