Indeed, reducing the clutter and noise in our lives allows us to more easily better ourselves — and consider the plight of the world around us. Ethical, eco-sensitive living is not only easier to accomplish successfully when you are able to buy less — you can also spend more time considering what you do consume. Interesting post!
Good luck with this next chapter of your professional career, Jen! I’m also contemplating my next career move and it is firmly in the ‘outside of my comfort zone’ camp. And I couldn’t be more excited for the opportunity it may bring.
Thank you Dear for this advice. I have been in a job that’s killing me but which reduced my income by a fourth. It’s time I took the risk, because in life it’s about not having regret at the end and doing what you think you might enjoy or garner satisfaction from.
I have a similar minimalist routine but am very different here. Whenever I get paid, I go in there and transfer money to myself FIRST before I pay the other bills,etc. I know how much I need to keep, subtract that from what’s in the account and then pay myself. That feels good. It’s a little different than the automation value but is what works for me to be more conscious about my money.
