The Minimalists – who?

What if everything you ever wanted isn’t what you actually want?

In 2010, Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus  both abandoned the majority of their material possessions and created TheMinimalists.com. In 2011, they walked away from successful six-figure careers to live more intentionally. Then, in 2012, they moved to Montana and started writing a book. This book,  Everything That Remains is available today. Feel free to get your copy signed during the 100-city tour, but remember to minimize it once you’re finished—pass it on, donate it, or sell it.

Disease Management

 

There is a lovely lady, Lynda Peterson, who struggled with a serious disease and through her challenges has published a book to help other people organize their journey through the medical process.  I met her at the Professional Organizers Conference in Vancouver in 2012.  Her planner is called.  The Healing Journal:  Taking Control of Your Journey Through Cancer

ELynda Peterson, cancer survivor and creator of The Healing Journal:  Taking Control of Your Journey Through Cancer

Disease Management – It’s more than just showing up for appointments and popping pills. It’s about a mind-set, about doing everything in one’s power to be successful in their healing journey.  It’s about ownership and attitude.
