Early on in our 5-year adventure on Floating Home, Stephanie said, “We chose to live with less so that we can experience more.”
I love that perspective, but it was not always the case.
I admit to having a mindset of wanting more most of my life!
Somehow having more stuff or nicer things felt like an accomplishment – perhaps a barometer of success.
Before we moved on the boat I was not really familiar with the term “minimalist”, let alone think of myself as one!
However, living in a small space we learned just how much less “stuff” we actually need!
It felt incredibly liberating not to have so much stuff.
These days I find myself craving LESS – less stuff, less stress, less noise, and less drama.
While we are temporarily living in one place, this Christmas season has been even more special as we got to see so much of our family – not all, but far more than previous years, and that is the best gift ever.
And while living in “suburbia” has brought up thoughts of shopping and buying “stuff” – I’m doing my best to instead focus on what’s truly important: relationships, God, family, and friends.
Stephanie and I both feel a yearning to travel, explore, experience, and create more amazing memories.
God willing, we’ll get back to that adventurous life again.
In the meantime I have discovered, in the words of the late and great Jackie Gleason, “how sweet it is”:
Less – Not More – Gets You the Most in Business and Life!
Have you noticed how much I’ve created for you in the past few months?
If you haven’t done so yet, check out my gifts to you about creating your lucrative virtual mastermind, filling your calendar with lucrative high-ticket client accounts, and my compendium of wisdom, strategy, and inspiration to build your own Dream Business.
Three things have driven me:
- Semi-retirement wasn’t all they said it would be cracked up to be
- The time away, on the boat, essentially “cleared the decks” and gifted me the opportunity to approach “getting busy again” with a clean slate free of the preconceived notions of what entrepreneurs and marketers (supposedly) “have to” do
- A new focus on my legacy – see how all of these items have been about setting YOU up for success, using the SIMPLEST tactics, methodologies, and strategies?
I’m finding out by seeing this blog post for the first time myself that next week, my digital marketing team is going to ask me to sponsor the creation of at least 3 more gift reports between now and April.
We’ll see how that goes.
Should I do it?
What topics would help you most?
Now, if you are looking for a “less is more” and “everything you need to succeed and nothing you don’t” roadmap for your 2023 success, some cutting-edge yet good old-fashioned masterminding and coaching may just be the ticket for you.
