"Don't be pushed by your problems; be led by your dreams."

Minimalism is a way of life that helps practitioners shed distractions. Ryder Carroll, founder of Bullet Journal, sat down with Minimalist author and speaker, Joshua Fields Millburn, to ask him about what Minimalism means to him and how it can help with living a more meaningful life.

Minimalism and the "Bullet Journal."
Changing seasons can be the perfect time to change habits and create new ones. This fall, focus your attention on organizing & simplifying. The "Bullet Journal was created by Ryder Carroll, a digital product designer living in Brooklyn, NY... He sees [this type of journaling] as an evolving, adaptable practice meant to be self curated as you determine what works best for you." With this type of journaling, you allow yourself to de-clutter and shed distractions, in turn leading to a more impactful life.   He has a practical angle on being truly productive.
