In this episode of The Minimalists Podcast, Joshua and Ryan talk about healing our relationships with stuff, truth, self, values, money, creativity, and people with podcaster and Director of Entrepreneurial Education for FEE, T.K. Coleman, and they answer the following questions:
- What gave you the inspiration for Love People, Use Things?
- Do we learn more from those that have been redeemed, or from those that have led “perfect” lives?
- How did the line blur so much between private lives and public lives?
- How do I reconcile with my minimalist values when I must trash items I no longer use that can’t be donated, recycled, or upcycled?
- What is the true cost of things?
- How do I justify to my minimalist self that it’s okay to have numerous accoutrements for several hobbies that bring me joy?
- What separates minimalism from dogmatism?
- How do I rejuvenate my creativity when I’m overwhelmed by burnout?
- How do we avoid falling into maintenance mode as creatives?
