“The hardest thing in the world is to simplify your life because everything pulls you to be more and more complex.”
It is chic to be minimalist. Who doesn’t love posting a photo of their closet after its been Kondo’d?
Minimalism isn’t just a design choice. It’s more than clean lines and open space. Most thing minimalism means “this stuff is causing a problem.” Maybe the problem is the stress of the mess, or the upkeep cost of just having stuff, or that half your day is eaten up in the search for that ONE thing in the stack of a million.
So you get rid of the stuff - but have you gotten rid of the problem?
When things get too complicated, maybe the best thing is to start moving backward. Complex problems are often best solved with simple solutions.
Every step forward should make things easier, not harder. Otherwise, are you sure you’re heading in the right direction?
