Kurzbeschreibung

At age 30, Joshua Fields Millburn left his six-figure career, ditched most of his material possessions, and started focusing on life’s most important aspects. Once he embraced his newfound minimalist lifestyle, he never looked back.

Suffice it to say, everything has changed in Millburn’s life in the last three years. After his mother died in October 2009 and his marriage ended a month later, he began questioning everything in his life: his material possessions, his career, his goals, his health, his relationships, his path in life. Soon he discovered minimalism.

In the three years since the author adopted a minimalist lifestyle, he has written more than 300 essays about minimalism and intentional living. He has written about his journey, his failures, his lessons, and everything he has learned during his transformation. A Day in the Life of a Minimalist is a collection of his best, most important individual writings—rethought and edited specifically for this collection.

This 208-page book contains 50 essays about living a meaningful life with less stuff, including “The Short Guide to Getting Rid of Your Crap,” “The Commodification of Love,” “Letting Go of Shitty Relationships,” and the title essay. Collectively, these essays are purposefully organized into nine sections—lifestyle, goals, experiments, clutter, relationships, changes, philosophy, consumer culture, and work—covering a variety of topics, viewpoints, and arguments within those themes.

Also included are a special forward written by Colin Wright (the man who introduced Millburn to minimalism) and an introduction by Joshua Fields Millburn, as well as two unpublished essays that can’t be found anywhere else: “What If Everyone Was a Minimalist?” and “Work-Life Balance.”

These essays were written to encourage readers to think critically about the excess in their lives and, ultimately, to take action towards living more intentionally. This collection is short enough to be read in a few sittings, or it can be digested slowly, reading one essay a day for nearly two months, applying its principals each day to your own life.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Thanks Josh&Ryan 13. Februar 2013
Von Martin
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The Minimalists mean a lot to me. I noticed Josh and Ryan for the first time when Josh was guestposting on Leo Babbauta's ZenHabits blog. It was back in october 2011 with the title "A Day in the Life of a Minimalist". I was impressed by his story and started some research and quickly followed their blog "the minimalists". I truely love their posts. They are warm, full of compassion and contribution to show you a meaningful life. They never try to persuade you, instead they take you by the hand and give you another perspective on life, money, time, relationships, things and ... gratitude. I'm thankful for their posts once a week, which give me inspiration and let me reflect on various things.
This book is the essence of the minimalists (so far!!) and I'm happy to be able to look through it again and again. Because it's awesome, because Josh and Ryan are awesome. Thank you. Lots of love to you.

2.0 von 5 Sternen A Clever Sell (Maybe Not Surprisingly) 28. Dezember 2012
Von JMH - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Before I started reading this book, I was under the impression that it would be addressing some philosophical or psychological issues pertaining to minimalism or the life of a minimalist. It might have been due to the fact that it's being sold as a book of essays and arguments. Fifty pages showed me that I was reading nothing more than a detailed account (in a big-seller, self-help type format) of the life of a guy who had 'turned his life around' through realising that happiness isn't achieved through the excesses that money brings, but from exercise, relationships (let's say, things of intrinsic value). I'll leave it up to you as to whether you find this insightful or not.

It's maybe nice to remind ourselves of the truth that this book is professing, especially in this materialistic day and age, but listening attentively to "Can't Buy Me Love" by The Beatles might achieve just as much as what this book is attempting to achieve. However, where this book might succeed is in reminding you more than a couple times of how the author loves literary fiction, loves writing literary fiction, and of the titles of the books and stories that he's published. I have to say at the risk of sounding cynical that there is a certain irony in the fact that the author was extremely successful in business/sales before he started his life of 'minimalism'.

If Joshua Fields Millburn wants to sell me a book of essays and arguments, he should at least instill them with a bit of insight and original thought. I (and I imagine most people) don't need to know the inherent value of keeping well-hydrated and developing techniques to manage stress. This book has a place for readers who are looking for self-motivating reads. It's not for me.

3.0 von 5 Sternen the author repeated himself over and over again 27. Dezember 2012
Von Laurie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I was disappointed. Started out interesting, but as book continued, the author repeated himself over and over again. Especially annoying was how often he mentioning his corporate management job.

2.0 von 5 Sternen not as solid as the site 24. Februar 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Somewhere Milburn must have learned that repetition drives the message home. The "I left my 6 figure income corporate job" schtick got tiring quickly and I stopped counting at 12 essays that stated this fact.

While I am aware these essays were plucked from the minimalists site, charging for them is not cool when there was little to no editing from the free product. There are some good nuggets in there that I missed regularly reading the blog, so all was not lost.

I have always enjoyed the Minimalists site but sitting down and reading this in one go, frankly, got nauseating. Milburn is brave to admit his faults and shows no fear exposing his previous and current life, that should be commended. However, someone should tell him that running a dozen or so mobile phone stores with 150 employees and making six figures is not a fancy corporate job. He comes across as smug thinking he hit the pinnacle of the corporate world and walked away, when in fact, it was far from it.

I moved to New York.
I stopped running from things I didn't want to face.
I lost 75 pounds.

I started realizing I could change who I am and change my life.

I recommend this book to anyone who's unhappy with the path they're currently on in life.

Thanks Joshua. This is precisely what I was looking for.

1.0 von 5 Sternen a waste of time and money 1. Januar 2013
Von Susaninacloud - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
There are few new insights in this book and I feel ripped off. It is about Josh who loves to talk about himself. At one point he is even talking to his reflection in the mirror, "Young Josh..." he addresses himself. He repeatedly tells us that he left his corporate job at age 30. Too much padding and self-absorption. The only part I enjoyed is how he decided to become a minimalist after hearing a comment from a neighbor when Josh was spending hours cleaning a cluttered garage. I have had a similar epiphany and I could relate to this. Note: Oops! The part I enjoyed turned out to be from Joshua Becker, an altogether different author. I highly recommend Becker's publications and online blog about minimalism which are less egocentric and relatable to a wide audience.
