Minimalism

Last updated 29 days ago

I love to live minimally and only use what I need. Think about things that matter to me. Cutting out the noise and focusing on what's important to me. I love not keeping everything in my head and letting software and tools do the things they are good at. Storing and retrieving information. Events, todos, tasks and projects.

I try to focus on one task a time. Finished the task? Do the next one in the queue. Task too difficult? Slice it and break it down to smaller tasks I can work on. One by one. No extra thinking of whether I am doing the right thing right now or whether I should be focusing my time on something else. Full focus on the task at hand until it is done.

What I find important in life changes as I gain more experience but I always try to be mindful of how I spend my time and what do I actually need to live a fulfilling and happy life.

Possessions

I keep a Trello board where I list things I own in my life. I mark items that I no longer need with Sell tag as well as items I need to upgrade with Upgrade. I try to make sure that the items I do own fit into one backpack so I can move to any place in the world with no effort.

Here is how that board looks for me:

I attach the prices of the items I buy inbetween the brackets (in Euro). And I describe how I use each of them & the link where I bought the item from in the description. I then use FB Market Place to sell off the things I don't need.

I budget all my money into categories each month. This allows me to spend my money mindfully and not buy things I don't need.
