Colin Wright of Exile Lifestyle shares his thoughts on a first principles lifestyle.

Episode 1571: First Principles Lifestyle by Colin Wright of Exile Lifestyle on How To Design A Better Life for Yourself

Colin Wright is a professional author and international speaker who co-founded a publishing company and travels full-time, moving to a new country every four months or so--that country determined by the votes of his readers! He also blogs.
Colin's a minimalist in that he owns very few things and is careful in how he consumes. He tends to buy less, but invest in quality when he does, and trends toward the same in relationships, business endeavors, and just about everything else.
He's left-handed, blue-eyed, scary good at Tetris, and can’t cook.

1566: The Morning Routine Effect (What to Expect and How to Get Started) by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less

Courtney Carver of Be More With Less shares the morning routine effect.

Episode 1566: The Morning Routine Effect (What to Expect and How to Get Started) by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less

Courtney Carver was stopped in her tracks with a scary MS diagnosis after decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health.
She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage.
Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.

An Excerpt from the book Project 333 by Courtney Carver.

Episode 1544: An Excerpt from Project 333 by Courtney Carver - The Emotion Chapter - Minimalism with Clothing & Dressing with Less

Courtney Carver was stopped in her tracks with a scary MS diagnosis after decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health.
She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage.
Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.

Rebecca Crespo of Minimalism Made Simple shares a step-by-step guide on letting go of expectations.

Episode 1543: A Step-By-Step Guide on Letting Go of Expectations by Rebecca Crespo of Minimalism Made Simple on Intentional Life

Rebecca is a New York native living in Spain. She started her journey of minimal living 3 years ago, when she decided to leave the soul-sucking corporate world and fit only her essential items into a small red carry-on, to fulfill her lifelong dream of traveling the world. Within those 3 years she learned that experiences are her vessels, and to be more intentional with the life she leads. Rebecca hopes her blog inspires you to explore your own journey of minimal living, one that is not defined by others, but rather a journey that is defined by one person and one person only - YOU.

Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog shares 4 actions steps to becoming more mindful.

Episode 1540: 4 Action Steps to Becoming More Mindful by Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog on Mindfulness Practice

Katie Ping is a small-town writer, yogi, and mama who values simplicity. She spent decades of her life people-pleasing and drowning in guilt and shame over parts of her that she thought were unworthy. By her late-20s, she found herself passionless and riddled with anxiety - and she knew she needed a change. Instead of creating a multi-layered plan on how to attain more peace, she started small - with a walking meditation practice. Those 15 minutes of strolling in silence down a tree-lined residential street led her to where she is today - facing her fears of imperfection and doing it anyway.

Michael Blankenship wants you to know that he gets it if you're tired, you're burnt out and you're sick of doing the same thing every day, quickly marching toward a grave stone with nothing interesting written on its face. Michael felt that way once, but one day, everything changed. Once he'd taken back control of his life, he realized that his gusto - that lightly glowing ember inside all of us - was just waiting to be reignited, waiting for torch to touch coals and set it ablaze. He believes the same thing is possible for you, no matter how far gone you are.

Episode 1524: Flexible Structures by Colin Wright of Exile Lifestyle on How to Create & Maintain Long Lasting Healthy Habits

Colin Wright is a professional author and international speaker who co-founded a publishing company and travels full-time, moving to a new country every four months or so--that country determined by the votes of his readers! He also blogs.
Colin's a minimalist in that he owns very few things and is careful in how he consumes. He tends to buy less, but invest in quality when he does, and trends toward the same in relationships, business endeavors, and just about everything else.
He's left-handed, blue-eyed, scary good at Tetris, and can’t cook.

Episode 1523: The Balancing Act of Gratitude by Will Penney of Be Better Stupid on How To Be More Grateful

Will Penney lives with his girlfriend and 4-pound chihuahua in Los Angeles. He likes basketball and food. He has the occasional Generalized Anxiety, constant crippling self-awareness, and a worse attention span than his chihuahua.

Unlike other self-help writers and gurus, he's not going to pretend like he knows you and how to fix your life. He's not here to offer solutions. He's here to propose ideas. Ideas are different. Ideas can be taken or left. Ideas can make you think. Ideas can be wrong. Ideas are real. Will is here to share some ideas on how maybe we can all be better.

1520: An Excerpt from Fear Is Fuel by Patrick J. Sweeney II on The Surprising Power To Help You Find Purpose & Passion

An excerpt from the book Fear Is Fuel by Patrick J. Sweeney II.

Episode 1520: An Excerpt from Fear Is Fuel by Patrick J. Sweeney II on The Surprising Power To Help You Find Purpose & Passion

Fear, the most powerful force in our life, is the least understood. Every one of us experiences it. Many arrange their lives to avoid it. Yet, nearly every one of us needs to find more fear. We don’t have to be held hostage by fear – there’s solid neuroscience you can depend on to make courage your new habit

Most of us know fear as the unwanted force that drives phobias, anxieties, unhappiness, and inhibits self-actualization. Ironically, fear is the underlying phenomenon that heightens awareness and optimizes physical performance, and can drive ambition, courage, and success. Harnessing that fear can heighten emotional intelligence and bring success to every aspect of your life. Fear is Fuel can show you how.

Episode 1514: Just In Cases by Chris Lovett of Minimalings on How To Start Minimizing Your Items & Minimalism Practice

Chris Lovett is a minimalist, life coach, speaker and career mentor but it didn't used to be that way. Quite content drifting through life in the comfort zone, he was collecting stuff, not exactly the stuff he wanted to collect but stuff none the less. Chris had a whole bunch of aspirations but managed to build a prison around them with a stack of unconscious decisions made down the years. His collection included debt, too many clothes, negative self fulfilling prophecies, assumptions, comparisons, unused 'just in case' items and a fixed mindset that kept me at just the right level of safe. He lived month to month but he wasn't really living at all.

Courtney Carver of Be More With Less shares how to become a minimalist or just simplify your life a little.

Episode 1508: How to Become a Minimalist (Or Just Simplify Your Life A Little) by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less

Courtney Carver was stopped in her tracks with a scary MS diagnosis after decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health.
She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage.
Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.

Michael Blankenship wants you to know that he gets it if you're tired, you're burnt out and you're sick of doing the same thing every day, quickly marching toward a grave stone with nothing interesting written on its face. Michael felt that way once, but one day, everything changed. Once he'd taken back control of his life, he realized that his gusto - that lightly glowing ember inside all of us - was just waiting to be reignited, waiting for torch to touch coals and set it ablaze. He believes the same thing is possible for you, no matter how far gone you are.

Bradley Charbonneau of Pass The Sour Cream on today is the first day of the rest of your life.

Episode 1491: Today Is The First Day of The Rest of Your Life by Bradley Charbonneau of Pass The Sour Cream on Personal Growth

Bradley Charbonneau's dad died in 2015 and it was as if, for the first time, that he realized we were mortal and had only this life to live. Unless you're a cat, but he wasn't a cat and he wasn't living the life he thought that he was supposed to live. Since then, he's been writing. Every Single Day. Bradley's now published 12 books, closed down the company he founded (and realized he hated), and moved his family to Europe. It doesn't cost him energy, it provides him with energy. Every Single Day. It all started with a single decision to write every day. When are you going to start living the life you were meant to live?

Episode 1469: Hello Anxiety, Let’s Talk: How Our Minds Cling to Familiar Narratives by Katrina Norman of The Mom Chronicle

Katrina Norman is on a journey to discover herself a little more every day. One of the tools to help her get there is how she interacts with the little people that emerged from within her. She is looking at the "me" in her relationships with the most vulnerable around her, her children. She is thinking of those moments of awareness where she is stripped bare in her role as mother and nurturer. She is using this as a mirror to focus on the raw, real, naked soul inside of her.

1459: How to Let Go of the Guilt of Letting Go by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less on Minimalism & Freedom

Courtney Carver of Be More With Less shares how to let go of the guilt of letting go.

Episode 1459: How to Let Go of the Guilt of Letting Go by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less on Minimalism & Freedom

Courtney Carver was stopped in her tracks with a scary MS diagnosis after decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health.
She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage.
Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.

2 short posts from Kacie Main where she shares her thoughts on finding a positive perspective in life.

Episode 1458: The Moment AND The Gift by Kacie Main on Finding A Positive Perspective In Life & How to find Gratitude

Kacie Main's affinity for writing started as a child, writing arguably overly emotional letters to family, friends, and boyfriends, and even an anonymous poem to a widowed neighbor. The first paper she wrote in college was nominated for a first-year writing award yet she still didn't think to pursue writing as a career. She spent years successfully wandering through jobs but always trying to figure out "what I want to be when I grow up." As her career path zigged and zagged, writing was always there, lurking in the background patiently waiting it's turn. Then at 32 years old, the patience ran out. She didn't sit down to write her book, it jumped out of her at perhaps the worst, best, most confusing, and most liberating time of her life.

Courtney Carver of Be More With Less shares how to avoid holiday overwhelm by saying no to almost everything.

Episode 1431: Avoid Holiday Overwhelm by Saying No to Almost Everything by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less on Minimalism

Courtney Carver was stopped in her tracks with a scary MS diagnosis after decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health.

Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage.

Episode 1423: Transcendence by Colin Wright of Exile Lifestyle on How To Find Deeper Meaning in Life

Colin Wright is a professional author and international speaker who co-founded a publishing company and travels full-time, moving to a new country every four months or so--that country determined by the votes of his readers! He also blogs.
Colin's a minimalist in that he owns very few things and is careful in how he consumes. He tends to buy less, but invest in quality when he does, and trends toward the same in relationships, business endeavors, and just about everything else.
He's left-handed, blue-eyed, scary good at Tetris, and can’t cook.

1416: [Part 2] The Disease of More by Mark Manson on Self Improvement
458

Mark Manson shares his thoughts on the disease of more. This is part 2 of 2.

Episode 1416: [Part 2] The Disease of More by Mark Manson on Self Improvement

Mark Manson was a full-time professional dating coach for men from 2008 until 2011. Sick of the industry, he wrote his first book, Models: Attract Women Through Honesty, and changed the name and focus of his business to address broader self-development topics for men. The book took off, selling tens of thousands of copies. As he branched out into deeper issues of masculinity, self-worth, and the changing cultural landscape, the site grew.
By 2013, he had begun writing about larger cultural issues — gender relations, happiness, ambition, life purpose, and cultural perspectives he had gathered while living in various countries around the world. Despite the fact that the business was still directed at men, thousands of women began reading and asking for advice as well.
That same year, he made the leap to his own site and domain, broadening the demographics of his audience. The site exploded, garnering millions of views each month.
Check out his book, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F--- on his site or Amazon.

Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog shares a reflection on her 30 day writing challenge.

Episode 1408: A Reflection On My 30 Day Writing Challenge by Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog on How To Set Goals

Katie Ping is a small-town writer, yogi, and mama who values simplicity. She spent decades of her life people-pleasing and drowning in guilt and shame over parts of her that she thought were unworthy. By her late-20s, she found herself passionless and riddled with anxiety - and she knew she needed a change. Instead of creating a multi-layered plan on how to attain more peace, she started small - with a walking meditation practice. Those 15 minutes of strolling in silence down a tree-lined residential street led her to where she is today - facing her fears of imperfection and doing it anyway.

Kristine Klussman specialized in Health Psychology (Behavioral Medicine) at Harvard Medical School, then founded and ran the Health Psychology program and post-doctoral training programs at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco. She found her work with cancer and cardiac patients inspiring, uplifting, and humbling.  She found so many of those going through life-threatening illness were - sometimes for the first time in their lives - absolutely clear what truly mattered to them: authenticity and connection.  In 2016, she founded a non-profit to focus full-time on trying to understand, explain and teach what she now believes is the single most meaningful and rewarding aspect of our existence.

Colin Wright is a professional author and international speaker who co-founded a publishing company and travels full-time, moving to a new country every four months or so--that country determined by the votes of his readers! He also blogs.

Courtney Carver of Be More With Less shares a good place to start if you are a beginner minimalist.

Episode 1382: Beginner Minimalist? This is a Good Place to Start by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less on Simple Living

Courtney Carver was stopped in her tracks with a scary MS diagnosis after decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health.

Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage.

Michael Blankenship of Get Your Gusto Back shares the real reason that you're always tired.

Episode 1377: The Real Reason That You're Always Tired by Michael Blankenship of Get Your Gusto Back on How to Have More Energy

Michael Blankenship wants you to know that he gets it if you're tired, you're burnt out and you're sick of doing the same thing every day, quickly marching toward a grave stone with nothing interesting written on its face. Michael felt that way once, but one day, everything changed. Once he'd taken back control of his life, he realized that his gusto - that lightly glowing ember inside all of us - was just waiting to be reignited, waiting for torch to touch coals and set it ablaze. He believes the same thing is possible for you, no matter how far gone you are.

1375: 8 Lessons to Remember When Traveling by Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog on How To Have Inspired Travel

Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog shares 8 lessons to remember when traveling.

Episode 1375: 8 Lessons to Remember When Traveling by Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog on How To Have Inspired Travel

Katie Ping is a small-town writer, yogi, and mama who values simplicity. She spent decades of her life people-pleasing and drowning in guilt and shame over parts of her that she thought were unworthy. By her late-20s, she found herself passionless and riddled with anxiety - and she knew she needed a change. Instead of creating a multi-layered plan on how to attain more peace, she started small - with a walking meditation practice. Those 15 minutes of strolling in silence down a tree-lined residential street led her to where she is today - facing her fears of imperfection and doing it anyway.

1368: [Part 2] 3 Important Life Skills Nobody Ever Taught You by Mark Manson on How To Make A Decision

Mark Manson shares 3 important life skils nobody ever taught you. This is part 2 of 2.

Episode 1368: [Part 2] 3 Important Life Skills Nobody Ever Taught You by Mark Manson on How To Make A Decision

Mark Manson was a full-time professional dating coach for men from 2008 until 2011. Sick of the industry, he wrote his first book, Models: Attract Women Through Honesty, and changed the name and focus of his business to address broader self-development topics for men. The book took off, selling tens of thousands of copies. As he branched out into deeper issues of masculinity, self-worth, and the changing cultural landscape, the site grew.
By 2013, he had begun writing about larger cultural issues — gender relations, happiness, ambition, life purpose, and cultural perspectives he had gathered while living in various countries around the world. Despite the fact that the business was still directed at men, thousands of women began reading and asking for advice as well.
That same year, he made the leap to his own site and domain, broadening the demographics of his audience. The site exploded, garnering millions of views each month.
Check out his book, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F--- on his site or Amazon.

Kacie Main shares her thoughts on the healing process.

Episode 1363: The Ruse by Kacie Main on How To Heal Ourselves & The Healing Process

Kacie Main's affinity for writing started as a child, writing arguably overly emotional letters to family, friends, and boyfriends, and even an anonymous poem to a widowed neighbor. The first paper she wrote in college was nominated for a first-year writing award yet she still didn't think to pursue writing as a career. She spent years successfully wandering through jobs but always trying to figure out "what I want to be when I grow up." As her career path zigged and zagged, writing was always there, lurking in the background patiently waiting it's turn. Then at 32 years old, the patience ran out. She didn't sit down to write her book, it jumped out of her at perhaps the worst, best, most confusing, and most liberating time of her life.

After years of impulse spending on Amazon and elsewhere, Anthony Ongaro realized that his one-click purchase habits were more of a physical Twitch than an intentional action. It turned out, this Twitch wasn’t just limited to online spending. It applied to social media, impulsive smartphone usage, and more.
Break the Twitch is all about minimizing distractions and doing more of what matters.

Kristine Klussman shares 2 tips for cultivating more meaning in your life.   

Episode 1348: 2 Tips for Cultivating More Meaning in Your Life by Kristine Klussman on Personal Development & Growth Mindset   

Kristine Klussman specialized in Health Psychology (Behavioral Medicine) at Harvard Medical School, then founded and ran the Health Psychology program and post-doctoral training programs at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco. She found her work with cancer and cardiac patients inspiring, uplifting, and humbling.  She found so many of those going through life-threatening illness were - sometimes for the first time in their lives - absolutely clear what truly mattered to them: authenticity and connection.  In 2016, she founded a non-profit to focus full-time on trying to understand, explain and teach what she now believes is the single most meaningful and rewarding aspect of our existence.

Courtney Carver of Be More With Less shares how to let go of 3 fears that are holding you back every day.   

Episode 1344: How to Let Go of 3 Fears that are Holding You Back Every Day by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less on FOMO   

Courtney Carver was stopped in her tracks with a scary MS diagnosis after decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health.
She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage.
Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.

Episode 1341: There Are No Extra Lives. Make This One Count by Steve Kamb of Nerd Fitness on Mindfulness & YOLO   

Steve Kamb started exercising back in high school without really knowing what he was doing. Through high school and college, he made every training mistake known to man and got zero results. It wasn’t until he graduated college and learned the right way to train that he started to see positive changes.
He's a nerd, but likes fitness… so why not combine the two and turn life into one giant video game?
And thus, in the fall of 2009, NerdFitness.com was born!   The original post is located here: https://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/there-are-no-extra-lives-make-this-one-count/

1339: [Part 2] Shut Up and Be Patient by Mark Manson on Difficult Life Transitions & Gratitude
585

Mark Manson shares why you should shut up and be patient. This is part 2 of 2.   

Episode 1339: [Part 2] Shut Up and Be Patient by Mark Manson on Difficult Life Transitions & Gratitude   

Mark Manson was a full-time professional dating coach for men from 2008 until 2011. Sick of the industry, he wrote his first book, Models: Attract Women Through Honesty, and changed the name and focus of his business to address broader self-development topics for men. The book took off, selling tens of thousands of copies. As he branched out into deeper issues of masculinity, self-worth, and the changing cultural landscape, the site grew.
By 2013, he had begun writing about larger cultural issues — gender relations, happiness, ambition, life purpose, and cultural perspectives he had gathered while living in various countries around the world. Despite the fact that the business was still directed at men, thousands of women began reading and asking for advice as well.
That same year, he made the leap to his own site and domain, broadening the demographics of his audience. The site exploded, garnering millions of views each month.
Check out his book, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F--- on his site or Amazon.   The original post is located here: https://markmanson.net/be-patient

1337: Learning To Forgive Yourself Will Set You Free by Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog on Forgiveness & Freedom

Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog shares why learning to forgive yourself will set you free.   

Episode 1337: Learning To Forgive Yourself Will Set You Free by Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog on Forgiveness & Freedom   

Katie Ping is a small-town writer, yogi, and mama who values simplicity. She spent decades of her life people-pleasing and drowning in guilt and shame over parts of her that she thought were unworthy. By her late-20s, she found herself passionless and riddled with anxiety - and she knew she needed a change. Instead of creating a multi-layered plan on how to attain more peace, she started small - with a walking meditation practice. Those 15 minutes of strolling in silence down a tree-lined residential street led her to where she is today - facing her fears of imperfection and doing it anyway.

Courtney Carver of Be More With Less shares 10 steps to end closet chaos.

Episode 1312: Closet Detox: 10 Steps to End Closet Chaos by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less on Decluttering Clothes

Courtney Carver was stopped in her tracks with a scary MS diagnosis after decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health.
She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage.
Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.

1309: Know Fear by Kacie Main on Acknowledging & Accepting Fear in Your Life
491

Kacie Main shares her thoughts on knowing fear.

Episode 1309: Know Fear by Kacie Main on Acknowledging & Accepting Fear in Your Life

Kacie Main's affinity for writing started as a child, writing arguably overly emotional letters to family, friends, and boyfriends, and even an anonymous poem to a widowed neighbor. The first paper she wrote in college was nominated for a first-year writing award yet she still didn't think to pursue writing as a career. She spent years successfully wandering through jobs but always trying to figure out "what I want to be when I grow up." As her career path zigged and zagged, writing was always there, lurking in the background patiently waiting it's turn. Then at 32 years old, the patience ran out. She didn't sit down to write her book, it jumped out of her at perhaps the worst, best, most confusing, and most liberating time of her life.

1306: 2 Tips for Finding Meaning Where There Is None by Kristine Klussman on Mindfulness & Gratitude
469

Kristine Klussman shares 2 tips for finding meaning where there is none.

Episode 1306: 2 Tips for Finding Meaning Where There Is None by Kristine Klussman on Mindfulness & Gratitude

Kristine Klussman specialized in Health Psychology (Behavioral Medicine) at Harvard Medical School, then founded and ran the Health Psychology program and post-doctoral training programs at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco. She found her work with cancer and cardiac patients inspiring, uplifiting, and humbling. She found so many of those going through life-threatening illness were - sometimes for the first time in their lives - absolutely clear what truly mattered to them: authenticity and connection. In 2016, she founded a non-profit to focus full-time on trying to understand, explain and teach what she now believes is the single most meaningful and rewarding aspect of our existence.

Episode 1298: [Part 2] Minimalism by Mark Manson on Leading a Minimalist Life

Mark Manson was a full-time professional dating coach for men from 2008 until 2011. Sick of the industry, he wrote his first book, Models: Attract Women Through Honesty, and changed the name and focus of his business to address broader self-development topics for men. The book took off, selling tens of thousands of copies. As he branched out into deeper issues of masculinity, self-worth, and the changing cultural landscape, the site grew.
By 2013, he had begun writing about larger cultural issues — gender relations, happiness, ambition, life purpose, and cultural perspectives he had gathered while living in various countries around the world. Despite the fact that the business was still directed at men, thousands of women began reading and asking for advice as well.
That same year, he made the leap to his own site and domain, broadening the demographics of his audience. The site exploded, garnering millions of views each month.
Check out his book, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F--- on his site or Amazon.

Courtney Carver of Be More With Less shares how to make big change small.

Episode 1283: How to Make Big Change Small (8 simple ways to close one chapter and begin another) by Courtney Carver

Courtney Carver was stopped in her tracks with a scary MS diagnosis after decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health.
She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage.
Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.
