July 11, 2022

What is the Real Pursuit of Happiness?
This week, Morgan has an enlightening discussion with Josh Milburn and Ryan Nicodemus, otherwise known as The Minimalists. Josh and Ryan climbed up the corporate ladder in their 20's to obtain the standard American dream of a consumer-driven life with luxury cars, big houses full of pricey material things. After being rocked by a series of life-altering events, Josh went on the journey to find a more meaningful life getting his childhood best friend Ryan involved along the way. Since starting their journey, The Minimalists have had two successful documentaries on Netflix, Minimalism and Less is Now, and have written four books, their most recent being Love People Use Things.
In this chat, they go in depth about what the pursuit of happiness means and how to be fulfilled without material things. They believe that all things they own should serve a purpose and provide advice on how to maintain this lifestyle. Milburn and Nicodemus go in depth on how minimalism goes beyond the scope of material things, but how it can help improve other areas of our lives by removing all types of life clutter such as calendar clutter, relationship clutter, and advertisement clutter.
