We are are here today to discuss the concept of minimalism defined as: Minimalism is all about living with less. This includes less financial burdens such as debt and unnecessary expenses. ... For many minimalists, the philosophy is about getting rid of excess stuff and living life based on experiences rather than worldly possessions. - Christopher Murray Today on the show we have minimalist Matt D'Avella. Matt directed an amazing documentary called Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things. He has also built a massive fanbase of 3.15 million followers interested in minimalism on YouTube. The film examines the many flavors of minimalism by taking the audience inside the lives of minimalists from all walks of life—families, entrepreneurs, architects, artists, journalists, scientists, and even a former Wall Street broker—all of whom are striving to live a meaningful life with less. In so many ways we are binging on all the wrong things and dying of hunger for the things that really matter. We as a society need to stop looking outward for happiness and being to look inward. Material things won't make you happy. Did chasing and sacrificing your precious time and energy trying to obtain "stuff" make you truly happy while you were here? If you die tomorrow does ANY of the material stuff you have matter at all? Matt also directed the new Netflix series The Minimalists: Less Is Now. The series is about how minimalism movement founders and longtime friends Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus share how people's lives can be better with less stuff. Matt and I discuss the power of decluttering your life, using minimalism to help you focus on the important stuff and how material things become owners of us and not the other way around. Beware, this conversation might change the way you look at your life. Enjoy!
