How to Live a Simpler Life (Podcast #26 with Courtney Carver)

An Action Plan for Dreamers is a weekly 20-minute podcast where we provide practical and actionable advice about what it takes to create the life you crave. It’s short enough to listen on your commute or coffee break and contains practical steps you can take to move closer to your dream life.

“The greatest step towards a life of simplicity is to learn to let go.” Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

Show Notes

Lots of people think minimalism and simplicity means giving everything up to live in a stark place. The vision is one of deprivation, and it’s part of the reason you might be reluctant to explore it. But simplicity really boils down to focus – focus on the kind of life you want to live and the possessions, activities, and relationships you need to make it happen.

When you know what you want, simplicity is the most direct path to get it. 

In today’s show, we’re discussing how to live a more simple life, no matter how many possessions you own. Simplicity is just another word for focus, and today’s expert is going to show us how to get more of it.

Courtney Carver started Be More with Less in 2010 to document how simplicity was changing her life. 18 months later she left a 15+ year career in advertising and marketing to focus on helping others live a simpler life and do work they love. She’s one of our favorite simplicity experts on the Internet, and today she’s going to share how simplicity can enhance your life (and explain why simplicity is probably not what you think it is).
