“Love people, use things. The opposite never works.” Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus, The Minimalists.
Throughout my adult life (or at least the majority of it), I’ve tried to be someone who places more value on people and experiences over materialism and the status quo.
This means looking at how the every day can be a catalyst for an opportunity to learn and share in the beauty of collective connections, and what we can take away from these experiences.
I’m not always successful – but then that’s why life is called an adventure. It’s a never-ending ride of lessons learned that we hopefully grow from by the time the ride is over.
This is the reasoning behind my new project Turn Off the Overwhelm,.
Our daily lives are overwhelmed with noise and distraction, serving only to remove us from the kind of connections and interactions that make us truly human.
We need to make our lives simpler so we have more time to connect to the experiences that truly matter, and lead a more deliberate life.
By turning off the overwhelm, we can foster deeper, more meaningful connections that offer more than just a brief memory, and create a series of lasting moments of a life well lived.
The goal of Turn Off the Overwhelm is to help you lead a more deliberate life through a shared vision to turn off the noise and return focus to ourselves and those around us.

Throughout life, we have a choice. We can either choose to put self and material living first, or we can live a deliberate life where others are our priority, and the things and experiences we collect are ones that bear meaning.
Here’s to meaningful lives.
The most valuable things are the ones that make our lives simpler so we have more time to connect to the experiences that truly matter, and lead a more deliberate life.
