How To Navigate Inspiration Overload

THIS WEEK, I've been reaching out to people whose work I love, trust, and respect to ask them to read an advanced copy of my new book and, if they are so inclined, provide an endorsement. As I considered who I wanted to ask, six or seven people immediately came ...

The Secret Ingredients for Conquering Your Wildest Dreams

I had thought about writing a book on clutter for years but it wasn't until I was given a deadline by my publisher that it got done. Each stage of the process from the first draft to final manuscript, from the book outline to the marketing plan, I've had deadline ...

A Powerful Valentine’s Day Gift

The contractors we hired to frame our tiny house finished up their work last week. It’s an indescribable feeling to see it finally take shape and look like a house – door, windows and all. Because the project is so particular (every inch matters), Melissa and I spent as much time ...

An Unexpected Turn of Events

Last week, I wrote to you about my father's surgery. Despite him coming through it successfully, his heart couldn't take the recovery. It’s been just over a week since my Dad passed away, yet it feels like an eternity and a minute at the same time. The unfolding events are both ...

Spiritual Lessons from a Sprained Knee

I'm heading downstairs to get some breakfast when my left foot slides out in front of me while my right foot stays planted, resulting in a full-on split with my back leg twisted. Not knowing whether anything is broken, I take a couple deep breaths and pull my leg around to ...

You Don’t Have To Do This Alone

As soon as I hear the first crunch of the fall leaves under my hiking boot and smell the intoxicating scent of autumn, I know I made the right decision.
