I have enjoyed all the chapters.The book is comprehesive and all the techniques are very practical if you feel overwhelmed in your life.The advice how to de-clutter your office and home and how to organize your email are helpful and effective.I was surprised by the advice how to stay motivated and achieve your goals-the list compiled here contains some special items and is very compresive.I loved also the performance by Fred Stella.I recommend warmly! It can change your life!
I was already familiar with some of the concepts written by Leo Babauta, but in this audiobook the ideas are presented in a larger context. It's a refreshing book and addresses many situations that are familiar to anyone trying to get things done. The book will pay for itself manyfold when you act on its recommendations.
The material is great, but the production for this is lacking - making me wonder if its even the type of thing that should be an audiobook. i found that the speaker/audio editor/whomever of this did not allow enough space between things to really allow a separation of content. the idea of different sections, chapter, and parts are not effectively communicated through effective use of pauses or emphasis. it all flows together too much and interferes with concentration on what is being said. i found that to be such a problem that i went ahead purchased the kindle for pc version so i could process this more efficiently. its a short book and i feel that the material is best presented that way. one way or another check out the material because its great, but you have been forewarned...
Understanding that less is better. We buy so much and waste so much money, energy on things we don't need.
Understanding that we can live with less and that by doing so we get rid of a lot of stress it causes.
I did then listened again.
We should all do this. Live with less. Be more in present and use what we need and not waste so much.
Great for time management, stuff management and life management. Very straightforward and to the point (as a book so titled should be!). Detailed steps for how to get from here to there.
If you ever feel out of control in your life, this will help you take back that control. Busy life does not have to be stressful. If you follow the philosophy of this book, it will make sure that you don't crash and burnt through your busy life.
I design websites and applications. Reading is a great passion of mine, but because of my mild dyslexia I can do better with audiobooks than regular books. I believe Audiobooks to be one of the best innovations in reading and personal development.
Dear Leo, I love this book and your blog. Thank you.
If you feel overwhelmed by tasks, work, or if you're just curious how doing less actually means doing more, definitely check this book out.
Like 90% of non-fiction these days, a simple essay would deliver the same idea just as effectively as an entire book. Same here... great ideas, but no need for a book. 1 to 2 chapters could have done it.
"The first thing to cut out is this book."
I have very much enjoyed Leo's blog about minimalism, and I too live a minimalistic life. I like the message. I think people should hear it. But not through this book. This book is too thin on the research behind minimalism, leaving the reader questioning the authenticity of the author. These are just one person's private views rather than researched material. Sorry. Try harder next time.
