It took me years to declutter and downsize, pay off debt and start saving and giving, and even longer to leave my job and grow a business doing work I truly love. There were other things I did to live a healthier, simpler life, but none of them happened overnight. My transformation was an inch by inch, month by month, one at a time, year after year of consistent, slow change.
My progress was slow but each change inspired the next. The best thing about my slow pace is that it was low stress. And, since eliminating stress was my focus, it seemed silly to do it any other way. Why make myself sick and exhausted making changes at an unsustainable pace trying to be healthier and happier?
We’ve all tried the fast and furious, strive for immediate gratification kind of habit change and it never works. We always end up trying to make the same change over and over again. Or, we give up on the change all together even though the change was never the problem. It was our approach to change.
A case for simplifying slowly
Ironically, it took me a really long time to figure out that simplifying slowly works faster than simplifying fast. I will always choose slow and steady over fast and furious because:
- Simplifying slowly sticks.
- Simplifying slowly lowers stress.
- Simplifying slowly allows time to learn and grow.
- Simplifying slowly actually works.
A Simple Year
I created the year-long program, A Simple Year based on the way I changed my life. One change at a time, slow and steady, with lots of love and fun along the way. After five years of working with thousands of people from around the world, 2019 will be the last year of this guided simplicity program. To celebrate the last year, I’ve decided to make it the best year ever with new contributors and topics, monthly sessions with me, a bonus module on busyness to help you slow down even more to help you navigate these 12 months of simplicity and more surprises throughout the year.
If you are curious about what topics we are covering, who our wonderful contributors are or what it will look like to simplify your life for a whole year with your own support team, head over to simpleyear.co.
