Minimalist Mindset | Kim + Joshua Becker

Love or Work

With the world stuck at home, so many of us are realizing just how much stuff we have. For Joshua and Kim Becker, this realization hit 12 years ago.

In the midst of spring cleaning a while back, Joshua Becker learned the term “minimalism”.  Him and his family then entered a 9-month journey of working through all the growing pains that go along with becoming a minimalist. One of which hit a little too close to home for his wife Kim when she walked in on Joshua throwing away their honeymoon photos!  

After the initial sting, this new way of life led Joshua to leave his job as a Pastor and to launch their new company “Becoming Minimalist” which brought on a whole new set of growing pains for the family. Join us as we listen to how Joshua and Kim are now active voices in leading other people in the process of decluttering and reprioritizing the things in their lives.

Going Minimalist To Save More with Joshua Becker #187

How to Money

We’ve all heard about the minimalist lifestyle- maybe you’re picturing a bearded hipster drinking coffee in his perfectly white dining room or an Instagram worthy, perfectly styled modern kitchen. It turns out that’s not what minimalism is all about- it’s about priorities. Also, we’ve all been spending more time in our homes than we’d probably like to be, and all that clutter might be getting to you. Here to talk with us today about minimalist living is Joshua Becker. While beginning the process of removing possessions from his life, Joshua started the site Becoming Minimalist and has written several fantastic books over the years including The More of Less and The Minimalist Home. Not only can a minimalist approach to life allow us to spend less & save/invest more, but it can have a positive impact in lots of areas of our life.

40: A Tip for Decluttering and Refocusing Every Room in Your House With Joshua Becker

The Do Gooders Podcast
Episode artwork
Read more

Did you know we have some 50,000 storage facilities in the U.S.? That’s more than the number of Starbucks and McDonald’s locations combined.

One estimate cites the number of items inside the average American home at 300,000. But what purpose does all of this “stuff” serve? 

Joshua Becker believes that a large amount of our stuff serves absolutely no purpose—and in fact, detracts from our well being instead of adding to it.

A former pastor and the founder and editor of Becoming Minimalist—with two books on the subject and an online course that 35,000 people have taken to date—he empowers readers to adopt a form of minimalism that works for them—in effect, optimizing our values. 

Because minimalism, he says, isn’t about living in a white room with zero belongings, but about intentionally promoting what we most value by removing anything that distracts from it. And in return, we can find more time, more money and less stress. 

Joshua is on the Do Gooders Podcast to talk about this purposed-focused journey, which he says comes down to a simple question: What do I want my life to be about?

It’s not: What do I need to get rid of? But what can I add to my life? And he shares plenty of practical advice along the way.

255: Joshua Becker, Becoming Minimalist

Leadership and the Environment
Episode artwork
Read more

I've recorded a few posts about how what many people call minimalism is really more maximal. From the outside it looks like minimizing stuff.d People who practice it, as I see it, don't focus on stuff. Getting rid of it is a means to an end. The end is more emotion, relationships, and connection---family, community, faith, and other things that bring meaning, which people prefer more of. They maximize those things.

Joshua Becker stands out as one of the main figures in that world. Millions of people have read his blog and books and taken his courses to do just those things.

In this episode we talk about how he started and perspectives that help. We talk about family, god, the bible, my first love, seminal moments in his life, and more.

Why not get personal?

Since this conversation, I read his book. People had already called me minimalist, but his book led me to find more material impediments to living by my values. I've gotten rid of more things, including the letters I talked to him about, which I wrote about here in Thoughts on reading my love letters to my high school girlfriend after 30 years and Update on the love letters with my high school girlfriend.

No matter how much you learn and practice in maximalizing your life, you can always learn more, in my experience at least.

Here's my review of his book The More of Less: Finding the Life You Want Under Everything You Own:

Makes simplifying and minimizing simple, accessible, and meaningful

I've you've thought about reducing your stuff and wondered about the freedom you know it will bring, this book will help you start.

Getting rid of stuff doesn't have to be hard, but it often seems that way. People love Joshua Becker's book because it makes the process simple, accessible, and meaningful.

People already describe me as minimalist, though I've thought I have too much. By the second chapter, this book helped me find another level of stuff. Getting rid of it is like a breath of fresh air. On finishing the book, I'm planning to start a non-profit I've meant to. I'm not sure I'll get to it, but just thinking about it is a better life than worrying about stuff I don't need.

Joshua's personal stories, especially the opening one realizing his garage junk kept him from his son, make it personal.
