Leonard’s take on “Minimalize to Maximize Your Happiness: Cut The Crap

When most people think of minimalism, they think of a beanie-wearing hipster sitting in a studio apartment surrounded by blank walls who wears the same thing every day. In short, many people think of minimalism as isolation from the real world. Mr. Melton, however, uses the concept of minimalism the way it was supposed to be. Not as a trend, but as a process.

You don’t have to isolate yourself from society and dress like Steve Jobs in order to become successful and happy. However, you do need to make difficult choices.

In his book, the author discusses how, over their lifetimes, many people collect both things and just as importantly emotions, behaviors, and relationships which they don’t really need and thus become a burden. Their closet and storage units become so overwhelming and so over-packed that they can not really get to the things they need to move forward.

Cut out what you don’t need so you can get to what you truly need.

In this book, you will learn why you need to get rid of things you no longer need or that are hindering your progress. You’ll also be given the thought process to be aware of what you no longer need. This applies not just to physical items but also to emotions, as well as your behavior patterns. If you wish to truly be happy you need to focus and what is most important to your journey and discard as much as you can. If you are still looking to finally achieve what you think is most important, this short book may be just the starting point you are looking for.

Mike’s thoughts on: Minimalize to Maximize Your Happiness

I think the book makes a couple great points. It also tells a couple real world stories that anyone can relate to.

A lot of people tend to cling to things for no real reason. We all have done in it some way, shape or form. This book highlights the things we carry with us that we really don’t need.

I’m a big fan of learning new perspectives. I also like to learn a little bit about how people think, so this was an interesting read for me.

Jake does a great job of listing several things in the book that most of us can take action on.  This book will make you think about what you need and don’t in your life.

I really enjoy the thoughts on cutting ties with relationships that are one-way. Most of us tend to waste a lot of time on toxic relationships or people that only think of themselves. Learning that lesson early will let you maximize your happiness.

Any book that makes you think and you enjoy reading is a good book, so two thumbs up.
