Ryan Nicodemus and Joshua Millburn were two happy young professionals from Ohio well ostensibly happy anyway. They are best friends in their late twenties, and they both had great six-figure jobs, nice cars, big houses with more bedrooms than inhabitants, lots of adult toys (get your head out of the gutter), and lots of stuff in general (e.g., clothes, furniture, TVs, DVDs, and tons various other junk). And yet with all this stuff, they discovered that they were not satisfied, that they were not happy with their lives. They discovered that working 70 to 80 hours per week and buying stuff to fill the void didn’t bring them satisfaction. In fact, it only brought them debt, anxiety, fear, loneliness, guilt, overwhelm, and depression. What’s worse (you’re thinking, what could be worse than all of that), they found out that they didn’t have control of their own time and thus didn’t control their own lives. They are taking back control of their lives using the principles of minimalism to focus on what’s important in life. This is the story of their journey towards becoming theminimalists.
