IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
Is focusing on and committing to the fundamentals, instead of wasting time, money, or energy on details.
A minimalistic approach can be applied to consumption, goals, schedules, tasks, design, and much more.
Obtaining a new possession often creates a spiral of consumption which leads you to acquire more new things.
As a result, we end up buying things that our previous selves never needed to feel happy or fulfilled.
When it comes to getting things done, options aren’t always a good thing.
When everything is a possibility, it actually becomes harder to make the right choice (or any choice at all).
Meanwhile, when we place a constraint on ourselves, it can become much easier to get something done.
Choosing one priority naturally guides your behavior by forcing you to organize your life around that responsibility.
Your priority becomes an anchor task, the mainstay that holds the rest of your day in place.
If things get crazy, you have already decided what is urgent and what is important.
