I believe I'm beginning to really understand that I have "enough".

I excitedly ordered The Power of Less, excited to see what secrets Leo had for the rest of us . . . what incredible breakthrough he found that allowed him to apply the principles of minimalism and common-sense which so transformed his life. What epiphany so empowered him. I was rather surprised to find my excitement was unnecessary.

There is no secret.

Leo took much of the same information I already know, and transformed his life. Doh. I already know everything in that book.

That means it's time to knuckle down and just do it. Here goes.

P.S.) The Short Lists are working great--when I remember to do them, and write them down. I think I need to start blogging them daily.

Isn't that how it always is? Things we already know, are already inside of us, we just have to DO IT!

Its a little funny how that works. I recently consulted with a nutritionist looking for some tips for weightloss. She said, "Keep on going with what you know, and maybe just a little more in [a couple of areas.]" I guess, like you, now I just have to DO IT! :)

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

I love the idea of "enough" in this world where everyone is always after more! Have you read "Your Money or Your Life"? I'm like you, I just need to buckle down and do it. There's a great website I like to visit with lots of folks who are trying to live simply. Simpleliving.net...they have lively discussion boards here: http://www.simpleliving.net/discussionforums/
