The Power of Less

Your life and legacy depend on the things you own. Kinda.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

Here’s a talk I gave at TEDx Grant Park in September 2017. This talk documents bits and pieces of my journey toward essentialism and minimalism. As we enter 2018, I pray this talk will help you launch 2018 with a clear vision of what you want to achieve and how you plan to accomplish your vision.

“Our souls are not hungry for fame, comfort, wealth, or power. Those rewards create almost as many problems as they solve. Our souls are hungry for meaning, for the sense that we have figured out how to live so that our lives matter so the world will be at least be a little bit different for our having passed through it.” —Harold Kushner

I hope you’re as excited for 2018 as I am. Let’s begin the year well by making ourselves better as we harness the power of less.
