Publisher's Summary

What would you focus on if you were no longer weighed down by your unwanted responsibilities? If you want to add something meaningful to your life, like traveling to exotic places, composing beautiful music, or experiencing a new friendship in a foreign language, you will need to figure out how to eliminate other things from your daily routine. Your time and money are not infinite so if you want to add something important to your life, there is no way to avoid removing something else. Unfortunately, these types of eliminations are very difficult to implement as they require removing something from your life that is already there for a specific reason. To make room for your passions are you going to sleep less? Are you going to spend less time with your family? Are you going to expend less energy at work? These are hard and often unrealistic trade-offs to make. The Minimalist Mindset is a book about a realistic process you can use to make deliberate decisions about how to prioritize how you live your life. This book walks you through the habits you can implement to consistently make sustainable trade-offs so that you can prioritize your passions and retake your freedom.

Life Changing Strategies for Efficient Living

This book is fantastic for anyone looking to de-clutter their life. The author delivers strategies to live more, do what you want to do more and how to do it all with less. His stories of successful implementation of this 'less is more' strategy and candid disclosure of his personal struggles to get there are cleanly delivered in bite-size chunks.

From a full life overhaul to a few minor adjustments and new habits, this book has something for everyone. For those looking for something more in-depth, he backs his strategies up with additional online resources.

As a self help book junkie, not all of the ideas are new but the strategies to get there are clean, methodic and concisely delivered. A++, Mr. Dover.

Excellent Advice For Minimizing Your Life

The Minimalist Mindset was a great listen. There were many, many tips and suggestions of ways to cut down, cut back and reduce your living, whether it be at the office or at home. One of my favorite things in the book was 'donation Sunday' or purging items no longer needed. For every one thing you purchase, get rid of two things. Also the part about books. I have so many physical books and magazines that I have a hard time letting go of. Sage advice in THIS audiobook. Recommended.

Dave Fung's performance was great. He did a wonderful job expressing how this mindset works. An overall excellent and useful listen.

The 4-Day Work Week For Your Life

What Tim Ferriss' 4-Day Work Week is to business so to is Danny Dover's Minimalist Mindset to the rest of your life. An excellent well organized book on structuring your life in this increasingly hectic world so you accomplish your goals and not get caught in the minutiae of little details. I can see using this as a guide whereby I constantly reread (or listen) to chapters for guidance.

Actionable, Comprehensive, Meaningful

If you could sum up The Minimalist Mindset in three words, what would they be?

Well worth it!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Minimalist Mindset?

The chapter on Money was worth more than the price of the audiobook. I wish I would have listened to this earlier!

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

This is not just a book about minimalism, it is also a book about happiness and prioritization. The mindset around prioritization is the aspect of this book that will stay with me.

Any additional comments?

I wish I would have listened to this book earlier in my life. I am already seeing a positive difference in my life having had listened to this.

enlightening at any age

This book simplfies and organizes the thoughts a lot of us have had. To say the information was new to me may not be as correct as saying I never REALLY thought about it clearly. Knowing that these skills are of value to others and having them clearly outlined is a definite plus in my mission to minimalize and travel.
I highly recommend it.

Just eh

Possibly set my expectations too high. I have read other books on this subject and in comparison this book is watered down and lacks personal connection with the author.

Must read but not great

This book is a must read because minimalism is so vital. There aren’t many resources I’ve seen on this topic that I find valuable.

The book isn’t as organized and put together as I would have hoped.

But if you get passed that you will gain some life changing insight. This mental approach works!

It's a blog in a book

The content is good and useful, however the book fails to have any narrative about the minimalist mindset. Maybe should be title the list of things I did to become a minimalist.

Not what I was expecting

This book does not come across with what I was expecting to be a minimalist mindset.  This book gives you ways to simplify your life.  It felt very much like the Eastern Mindset.  Don't waste time, energy, money or space with things that do not bring you joy and fulfillment.  Throughout this book Dover gives checklists on how to evaluate what you are doing, is it helping you get to where you want to go, and if not then what can you do about it.  This book is short and easy to follow.  Something you can go back to again and again.

Practical, Informative and Rewarding

Would you listen to The Minimalist Mindset again? Why?

Practical application of the minimalist mindset to real life with great examples and understanding.
