If you’ve been inspired this year to give minimalism a try there’s one place you absolutely must start. Before you do anything else download this free e-book from Leo Babauta (owner of Zen Habits and mnmlist).

Leo writes some of the best material I’ve seen on the topic of minimalism and simplifying your life. His story and focus are an inspiration to me. The changes he has made in the last five years as a result of living a minimal lifestyle are drastic. His free e-book, entitled “Focus” was part of the inspiration for me starting this blog.

I want to be a minimalist, I want to simplify my life to focus on what really matters. The e-book is short, practical, and inspirational. No matter where you are in life you owe it to yourself to give this book a read.
