My Must List

January 14, 2011 at 2:30 PM 1 comment

there’s a lot of fascinating posts out there describing how to begin your journey into minimalism. I was intrigued by Joshua Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus‘s blog and have been reading their 21 day journey into minimalism. Their first step was their “Must List“, which I really liked. So I thought I would share my own. It is an excellent exercise to get me started on my journey. I will write it up and post it in the bathroom, where I will see it daily.

  • I must spend more time playing with my daughter
  • I must spend more time relaxing with my husband
  • I must spend more time reading the Bible
  • I must write every day
  • I must read every day
  • I must keep my home clean and presentable
  • I must reduce my debt
  • I must keep in contact with my friends
  • I must contribute to our finances
  • I must stop wasting time on foolishness
  • I must get rid of most of my clothes
  • I must sell or donate excess belongings
  • I must eat healthy foods at every meal
  • I must eat less salt
  • I must cook healthy meals for my family
  • I must drink 11 cups of water a day
  • I must exercise (yoga, Pilates, swimming, walking) 4 times per week
  • I must reduce my driving
  • I must pray

Wow. What a liberating exercise! I am glad I did that. I expect that this list will grow and change overtime but for now, I feel I have made a good start.

    Nice work. That’s a great list of “musts.” Feels good, right? Really helps us get our priorities straight.

    Take care,
