The Effective Minimalist is a personal audio journal on working towards and living a good life. In each episode, I share my experiences, questions and ideas as I try to apply the concepts and approaches of minimalism to my life, to get rid of the clutter and make space and time for the things that truly matter.
Podcast 018 - The Value of News
In this episode I clarify a point I raised last episode about reducing the scope of my work, and mostly talk about news and some of the reflections and adjustments I've been making to how I seek out, process, and act on news.
Podcast 017 - Plateau
In this episode I share some of the challenges I've been having with minimalism and how I've been feeling that my efforts at both minimalism and productivity have plateaued.
Podcast 016 - Return
An update on what I've been up to, and why it has been so long since I put out an episode.
Podcast 015 - My ideal week
In this episode I share my ideas about how I plan on organizing my work so that I can stay focused on my priorities and ensure that I have enough space and time to do good work.
Podcast 014 - Starting over
After roughly a month hiatus, I decided it was time to put out a new if short episode to give an update on the reason for my absence and to renew my commitment to putting out this podcast on a regular basis. The title of this episode refers to the fact that after a month or two of being in crunch mode to get a major project out the door, I’m finding myself having to rework and rebuild the habits I had been working on to minimize the clutter in my life so that I focus on what matters. I’ve decided to see the last two months not as a failure or as a set back but rather as a learning opportunity, one that has helped me to identify the shortcomings in my systems. Over the coming weeks I’ll be putting things back in place and sharing my experiences in future episodes. Thanks for listening! ⁂ To subscribe to The Effective Minimalist, see the Subscribe page.
