MINIMALISM | DAY TWO



NOTES | DAY TWO PLANNING
With your vision in place, you must now plan your journey. Spend at least an hour planning today. Develop your plan by answering the following questions:

WHAT IS STANDING IN THE WAY OF MY MUSTS?

Distractions, mainly including things like my phone, Netflix, YouTube. Most distractions in my opinion are completely okay in moderation. Kind of like when you're trying to maintain your diet, ice cream + chocolate are acceptable, in moderation.

WHEN DID I GIVE SO MUCH MEANING TO MY POSSESSIONS?

I have always been one to tie sentiment value with 99% of all my stuff and I feel anxious when I cannot place something, even if it is never used. Just knowing where it is works for me.

WHAT IS TRULY IMPORTANT IN MY LIFE?

Building relationships. Cultivating a hope filled community. Pursuing dreams. Digging into a deeper faith. A heavenly, secure home.

WHY AM I DISCONTENTED?

Discontentment, not so much. Just a desire for a simpler life and overcoming the obstacles along with it trying to maintain a positive mindset.

WHO IS THE PERSON I WANT TO BECOME?

I want to be able to not feel dependent on my phone, as a distraction. I want to have a decluttered space. I want to build a budget that gets rid of unnecessary purchases (which I have already been doing much, much better with and I notice a huge difference in my bank account $).

HOW WILL I DEFINE MY SUCCESS?

Genuine joy. Fulfillment. Quality over quantity. 

HOW WILL MY LIFE IMPROVE IF I OWN LESS STUFF?

My focus will instead be on what's important to me rather than excess tangible things.

P.S. Happy Super Bowl Sunday! :)
