What Would You Focus On If You Were No Longer Weighed Down By Your Unwanted Responsibilities?

If you want to add something meaningful to your life, like traveling to exotic places, composing beautiful music, or experiencing a new friendship in a foreign language, you will need to figure out how to eliminate other things from your daily routine. Your time and money are not infinite so if you want to add something important to your life, there is no way to avoid removing something else.

Unfortunately, these types of eliminations are very difficult to implement as they require removing something from your life that is already there for a specific reason. To make room for your passions are you going to sleep less? Are you going to spend less time with your family? Are you going to expend less energy at work? These are hard and often unrealistic trade-offs to make.

The Minimalist Mindset is not a book about tidying up (that book has already been written) and it is not a book about the philosophical exploration of minimalism (that book already exists too). Instead, The Minimalist Mindset is a book about a down and dirty process you can use to make deliberate decisions about how to prioritize how you live your life. This book walks you through the habits you can implement to consistently make realistic and sustainable trade-offs so that you can prioritize your passions and retake your freedom.

Best-selling author Danny Dover shows you a reproducible process he used to go from a boring life in a cramped apartment in Seattle, Washington, to a fulfilling multi-year adventure that included visiting nearly 100 countries, learning to play music, studying a new language, and the eventual completion of his more than 150-item Life List.

In This Step-by-Step Guide, You Will Learn How To:

• Automate your finances so that you can effortlessly save more money than you thought was possible (Chapter 6)
• Spend more time with the people you love, while still doing the things you care about (Chapter 7)
• Say no, in a polite and effective manner, to incoming asks for your time or expertise (Chapter 7)
• Earn the clout necessary to work remotely from cities around the world (Chapter 8)
• Take control of your e-mail inbox once and for all (Chapter 12)

If you are tired of working to enable others to follow their dreams rather than being able to pursue your own, The Minimalist Mindset is your escape hatch. Read this book now, and retake your freedom.

Editorial Reviews

David Ralph
Through the process of having a show, I get asked to read many many books. Danny Dover's book, The Minimalist Mindset, deserves every star that I can give it. If you are looking to change your life and want practical ways of doing it, then this is the book for you!
Peter Fantham
51 pages in and I took the simple actions that the author outlined in Chapter 6 'Money' to save myself ~$125 a month on recurring expenses, making the book well worth the investment!
Patrick McClure
At the center of a Minimalist Mindest is Danny himself, offering to the reader a history that colors the book's bits of knowledge with a lot of heart. It compelled me to find my own reasons for wanting to live a simpler, freer, and ultimately more productive life. Editing a life can be hard work! The Minimalist Mindset, however, does a great job in giving the reader small and actionable edits that an be employed to free up brain space and utilize creativity for more compelling activities.

Meet the Author

In 2010, Danny Dover assigned a deadline of May 25, 2017, to his life. He was tired of hearing about other people’s exciting lives and decided to jump-start his own by taking steps to actually live as if the end was in sight. He tattooed his deadline on his butt and made the sole purpose of his life to complete his Life List (a list of more than 150 life goals). While pursuing his list, he inadvertently became a minimalist in order to gain the necessary focus to create a more meaningful life. This seemingly small change in mindset (which he later detailed in The Minimalist Mindset) dramatically changed his life for the better.

As of 2017, Dover has completed his entire Life List (which included living alone in the wilderness for a month, traveling to nearly 100 countries, mountain climbing in Antarctica, becoming a best-selling author with his book Search Engine Optimization Secrets and many other adventures). More importantly, though, he has a small group of deep friendships and is able to spend much of his time writing for an extraordinary community (), and sharing life-changing experiences with others.
