Weekend Wisdom: The feedback you give says more about you than the feedback you receive.
I’ve been thinking about this book.

It’s hard for me to believe that Project 333, the minimalist fashion challenge that proves less really is so much more came out this year. On March 3rd, I was so happy to kick off the book tour in NYC and by March 11th, I was crying in an Austin hotel room when it was time to call it all off.
As the events of 2020 unfolded, it felt weird to promote and continue to share the book. I wasn’t sure if anyone cared. We’ve all been so overwhelmed and distracted, not to mention struggling, grieving and anxious. Recently though, I’ve remembered the “and” – we can do the hard things AND enjoy new books, recipes, conversations, movies and other things that make our lives lighter, richer and happier.
- Project 333 was recently named one of “The Most Popular Under-The-Radar Books in US. Libraries” by Book Riot.
- It was published in the US, UK, Canada, Vietnam and is soon to be published in Russia, Indonesia, Korea, Japan and hopefully many other countries.
- Project 333 was featured on Good Morning America!
- And the thing most worth celebrating is that I hear from people almost daily about how Project 333 has changed their closets, bank accounts, relationships, mental health and lives. That matters to me.
Learn more about the book, course and challenge right here.
So today, as I celebrate the Project 333 book, I invite you to celebrate your 2020 accomplishments, realizations, smiles, and other goodness. Share on social media or with friends or write about it in your journal. We’ve come a long, long way this year and that in itself deserves a little confetti.
