When you are finished with Marie Kondo's Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, next is Essential Essays by The Minimalists. Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus are The Minimalists. It interests them to live focused, intentional lives - not busy ones. They respect what C. S. Lewis eloquently said about happiness: "Don't let your happiness depend on something you may lose." Suggestions abound - dumping everything in the closet that you don't love; letting go of your DVD collection "to live your life instead;" "keeping real friends, not fake friends from the past."
