  • Minimize to get focused

    One of my best recommendations for anyone who’s perpetually busy is to practice minimalism. No, that doesn’t require anyone to give up all their possessions or sleep on a straw-mat! Minimalism is a mindset. The core thesis isn’t that less is more, but less is enough. The best leaders, athletes, and craftspeople are known for […]

  • I lost the 10-day no-goals, no-tracking challenge

    I’ve been an active essentialist (while dabbling with minimalism here and there) since 2009.

Most of his followers want to be the next him without realizing the amount of blood, sweat, and […]

  • Applied minimalism in the age of unlimited options!

    Every subject of study has two facets: theory and application. We cram (while respectfully trying to understand) a lot of theory while we’re in school and continue doing that in college. If we’re driven enough to attend the lectures (in Asia, particularly in India) or stay awake (the rest of the world) that is. Take […]
