“If you mind can’t see the steps, your heart will ask to pause”
Recently, I saw a Tweet about an article called "How to Do. One. Thing. At. A. Time" and it made me think about The Minimalists. Sometimes life moves on and I don't spend the same time I used to in terms of consuming content from my favorite sources. But that's ok.
Then I saw the email with that podcast episode called Simpleliving. I must say these guys have continued to improve how they deliver their message of living a meaningful life and spreading the word about what it means to be a minimalist.
Now they have the YouTube version of their podcast episodes which gives another perspective than just listening to them. Here's the podcast episode and below the video I will include my own notes as I watch/listen:

This is a good reminder about discipline. I normally tend to accomplish a lot when I work on my discipline, but the challenge is to keep it going.
“WeWork’s Adam Neumann talks with Connie Loizos about building operating systems for buildings, selling services, and building partnerships.”
I’ve been doing my remote work at WeWork and I’ve been enjoying having a very cool working space where not only I can network with others but also have interesting views from the city.
There is something about this time lapse video that I love:
Isn’t this the real truth? …
we say we are planning, we are prepping, we are raising money. We are trying for a bigger market. …What’s wrong with the small market?! … Can you create something of value for 3 people? Can you create something of value for 9 people?
