Simple Manifesto #58 – Read Simplify Your Life, by Elaine St. James


This is part of our series on Leo Babauta’s Simple Living Manifesto. We invite you to join us on the journey.

The 58th idea in the manifesto is:

Read Simplify Your Life, by Elaine St. James. One of my favorite all-time authors on simplicity. Read my review here.

This is another one of Leo’s suggestions that I haven’t had the chance to do or try yet.

I’ve added it to my wish list — so hopefully I’ll come across it in my favorite used bookstore sometime soon, or find a copy at our local library before too long — otherwise I know where to find it on Amazon.

Perhaps some of you have read the book and would love to share your thoughts on it.

I had a great conversation with one of our readers about Walden by Thoreau last week (you can read it in the comments section here).

So I’m hoping some of you can give us some more background on this book and author as well.

Also, I’d love to hear some more suggestions to who your favorite Living Simply or Minimalist writers are.

The Minimalist Business

And while we’re on the topic of books, Everett Bogue, who I mentioned last week in the post about Walden, is re-releasing his Minimalist Business book tomorrow.

Everett’s writing keeps getting better and better — and he’s the real deal when it comes to running a successful minimalist life and business.

If you’re interested at all in a successful minimalist business, either part-time or full-time, I’m this will be a great resource for you.

You can create a minimalist business in order to live and work from anywhere.

The Internet has broken down all of the barriers in communication, and this in turn has broken down all of the barriers in sales. If there are no costs, you can sell to anyone in the world.

Any one person can contribute value to a tribe of 1000, or 10,000 people who will support them online.

I’d encourage you to pick up this book as soon as it’s released (10 a.m. PST).

I missed it the first time around, but luckily tomorrow he’ll continue his special early-bird pricing for the first 24-hours.

So get in early.

UPDATE: Joshua Becker has a great review of Everett’s book here.
