The Minimalists do not provide a lot of answers in this book but do two thing that I found really beneficial to me: They ask some good questions and they tell you to trust yourself.
The tone of the book is optimistic and is in favor of experimentation and customization of the experience. It is overall empowering. Maybe, the template that has been defined as the American Dream and forced on us as the perfect way to happiness is not fitting you. And, it’s OK. Try and experiment with other templates and find the one that make you happy. Do not settle for the one that gives you the best chance to achieve happiness. Give yourself the right to be happy now.
A lot of it is kind of vague and kind of generic, but I think that it’s worth the read. It’s a very short volume.
