Things that matter just hits different.
And not just those things, but the book by Joshua Becker of the same name.
Joshua isn’t just one of my favourite people to have a conversation with, he’s one of my favourite writers. And his book, Things That Matter: Overcoming Distraction to Pursue a More Meaningful Life, is a book that I needed to read.
I believe it’s a book that you need to read as well.
Joshua Becker is The Wall Street Journal best-selling author of The More of Less and The Minimalist Home. He’s also behind the site Becoming Minimalist and, as mentioned, is one of my favourite people to hang out with.
We talked about why writing this book was a big deal for Joshua, falling into the trap of chasing the wrong things, the problem with retirement, and – wait for it – atychiphobia.
Whenever I speak with Joshua, ideas really come to front of mind. You’ll hear this coming from me throughout this conversation. Maybe it’s that those things matter to me… or maybe I’m auditioning them for that role. Either way, I’m happy that we had a chance to make this conversation happen because it mattered a lot to me to make it happen.
I trust after listening to this episode that you’ll understand why.
