9781516931583: Pure and Simple: How to Simplify Your Life, Do Less, and Get More

Get More out of Life with Less Effort

You’ve heard of people living “the good life.” They always seem to have plenty of time, money, and energy to fulfill their goals and dreams. Their secret? A simple life.

Pure and Simple is based on the 80/20 principle and suggests steps to simplify your life, accomplish more, and increase the quality of your time and efforts – all with less work!

Inside, you’ll learn how and why you should:

- limit your choices in everyday life. Discover four areas of your life that can be greatly improved.

- declutter your physical and digital space. This doesn’t mean living with less than 100 things.

- use the golden rules of simplification. Make decisions more quickly and with less effort.

- cut unnecessary time commitments. Have the time to reach your goals and fulfill your dreams.

- build a positive outlook. Learn to overcome a negative mindset to better enjoy your life.

All these suggestions are laid out to help you shift away from the frustrating mindset of “fixing” your life by working harder, gaining more possessions, and holding on to what’s truly limiting you in life.

Each step is supported with research by leaders in psychology, behavioral studies, and neuroscience as well as examples of real habits by successful people such as Warren Buffet and President Obama.

Once you finish, you’ll be better prepared to take your life to the next level. You’ll be able to enjoy the simplicity and ease of a life without unnecessary and exhausting demands on your time and energy. More importantly, you’ll be able to stick to your simple, new habits instead of defaulting back to complexity.

From the Author:

I wrote this book to show you how to reduce or eliminate the activities that don't bring value in your life. You'll be able to enjoy the simplicity and, most importantly, stick to it instead of defaulting to complexity once again.

Just like maintaining a healthy weight requires healthy habits, living a simplified life requires maintaining a few simple habits, too. You'll discover the most important question to ask yourself each time you want to add something in your life. You'll also increase your life satisfaction by making a simple switch in your priorities and acquire a powerful skill for virtually unlimited achievement.

As in my every book, I point to numerous resources and scientific research to base the advice and claims on something more than just my subjective opinion. However, the book - as every book in this genre - is still based primarily on my views and ideas which you may or may not agree with. My goal is to help you reconsider how you live your life, not tell you how you should live it, as the answer varies for each person.

Each chapter ends with a quick recap to help you review it. If you're after getting the most knowledge in as little time as possible, you don't need to read the entire book. 80% of its value will be found in these short chapter summaries. If, however, you want to have a more enjoyable reading experience, I invite you to follow me through every single chapter.

About the Author:

Martin Meadows is the pen name of a bestselling author who has dedicated his life to personal growth. He constantly reinvents himself by making drastic changes in his life. Over the years, he has: regularly fasted for over 40 hours, taught himself two foreign languages, lost over 30 pounds in 12 weeks, ran several businesses in various industries, took ice-cold showers and baths, lived on a small tropical island in a foreign country for several months, and wrote a 400-page long novel's worth of short stories in one month. Yet, self-torture is not his passion. Martin likes to test his boundaries to discover how far his comfort zone goes. His findings (based both on his personal experience and scientific studies) help him improve his life. If you're interested in pushing your limits and learning how to become the best version of yourself, you'll love Martin's works.
