Meet Kirk my new minimalist friend. Kirk comes from wealth but has chosen to live his life with as few possessions as possible.
Kirk is a vegarian, lives off what he grows as much as possible and leave a very small environmental impact on his community.
While this isn’t how most live our lives, there is cause to reflect on some lessons we can learn from the minimalist lifestyle.
Like asking if you really need something before you purchase it or asking yourself how often will you actually use it?
Like buying large quantities of food at one time.
Like asking if we really need to get into the car for this trip.
Is there one area in your life that you could employee a minimalist point of view? I wonder what Google’ing minimalist would reveal?!
Asking, “Do I really need this,?” it’s just one more way to live Your Life, Unlimited!
Joel Radakovitz – he bought drink for the entire plane on my last flight – he wants to give people Long Term Memories – love, love, love it! He joins me to share the backstory on this week’s Your Life, Unlimited CJOB radio broadcast.
My other guest is Rita Giersh from Wpg – a 76 year old spit fire who once bought a loony sized jar of caviare for $100, just so her kids could have that once in a lifetime experience.
These folks really are living their life, unlimited – enjoy the whole show here!
