Tiny House Mindset

Last night I watched a show called Tiny House Nation, and I have to say, I was quite intrigued.

The gist of the show focuses on people who want to have less, so they can do more.

The families purge most of their personal items, and live in a 500 ft.² house.

If you think about it, that’s about the size of an average two-car garage.

Interesting concept? Why would anyone want to do this?

Well, here’s my thought… I grew up in the 80s; aptly coined “The Decade of Decadence”

where MORE was not enough. The “more” you got the happier you would be, right?

So, I personally started to acquire stuff…and more stuff.

And my thirst was never quenched.

In fact, the opposite seems to happen. The more stuff I acquired the less happy I seem to be.

Have you ever experienced this?

When do you remember life being more fun?

More carefree?

More simple?

Least stressful?

Was it when you had more “stuff”, or less “stuff”?

Remember: The more “stuff” you have, more things you’re responsible for.

“Stuff” requires more:


more finances

more time

more mental RAM

more energy

more responsibility

I learned that, it’s not the things we remember most in life, but the experiences.

Don’t let the stress and responsibility of stuff erode your happiness or your health.

Watching your back,

    smaller house, less taxes and insurance, plus when my wife tells me to vacuum the house it doesn't take me a lot of time.
