Finally, we sit down with minimalist expert Joshua Becker about making room to prioritize the important things in life.

Michelle Phan on Following Your Calling

“There’s no excuse. How hungry are you? How badly do you want to do this? Why do you want do this?”

Tim Ferriss on Turning Knowledge into Action

“I want to be striving for improvement from a place of excitement and curiosity, not from a place of guilt or a feeling of incompleteness that leads to, ultimately, a dissatisfaction no matter how good you become.”

Daniel Goleman on High Performance Through Emotional Intelligence

“The mind is like a muscle. You can exercise a muscle the same way you lift weights in the gym, and the basic move in that exercise is focusing on something, watching your mind wander off and bringing it back. It’s called mindfulness. You can use your breath as an anchor.”

Joshua Becker on Living a Minimalist Life

“Does this item help me fulfill my purpose? If this thing helps me become who I want to be and do what I want to do, then this is an item that I should hold on to. Ultimately I think that, that we find our happiness in living out our purpose, uh whatever that might be.”
