Joshua Fields Millburn könyvei a rukkolán


Joshua Fields Millburn - Ryan Nicodemus - Minimalisták
Létezik ​olyan siker, ami nem fejezhető ki pénzben. Boldogságnak hívják. Joshua Fields Millburn huszonéves, öltönyben, nyakkendőben járó feltörekvő vállalati reménység volt, aki úgy gondolta, mindene megvan, amire valaha vágyott. De egyszer csak rájött, hogy nem ez az, ami igazán fontos számára. Miközben arra törekedett, hogy a kötelező fogyasztásnál, az anyagi javak halmozásánál és a nem működő Amerikai Álom modelljénél valami értelmesebbet találjon, megszabadult a legtöbb vagyontárgyától, visszafizette bénító adósságait, és otthagyta a jól fizető állását, karrierjét azért, hogy rátaláljon arra a munkára, amit szenvedéllyel csinálhat, s arra a társra, aki igazi társa lehet mindebben.

Joshua Fields Millburn - Ryan Nicodemus - Everything ​That Remains
What ​if everything you ever wanted isn't what you actually want? Twenty-something, suit-clad, and upwardly mobile, Joshua Fields Millburn thought he had everything anyone could ever want. Until he didn't anymore. Blindsided by the loss of his mother and his marriage in the same month, Millburn started questioning every aspect of the life he had built for himself. Then, he accidentally discovered a lifestyle known as minimalism...and everything started to change. That was four years ago. Since, Millburn, now 32, has embraced simplicity. In the pursuit of looking for something more substantial than compulsory consumption and the broken American Dream, he jettisoned most of his material possessions, paid off loads of crippling debt, and walked away from his six-figure career. So, when everything was gone, what was left? Not a how-to book but a why-to book, Everything That Remains is the touching, surprising story of what happened when one young man decided to let go of everything and begin living more deliberately. Heartrending, uplifting, and deeply personal, this engrossing memoir is peppered with insightful (and often hilarious) interruptions by Ryan Nicodemus, Millburn's best friend of twenty years.

Joshua Fields Millburn - Ryan Nicodemus - Minimalism
At ​age 30, Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus left their six-figure corporate careers, jettisoned most of their material possessions, and started focusing on life's most important aspects. And they never looked back. This book's foreword and first chapter examine Joshua and Ryan's backgrounds, their troubled pasts, and their eventual spiral into depression. These chapters discuss why the authors didn't feel fulfilled by their careers and why they turned to society's idea of living: working ridiculous hours, wastefully spending money, living paycheck to paycheck. Instead of finding their passions, they pacified themselves with ephemeral indulgences, inducing a cocaine-like high that didn't last far past the checkout line. And then, after a set of life-changing events, they discovered minimalism, which allowed Joshua and Ryan to eliminate life's excess and focus on the essential things in life. The subsequent chapters explore their journey into a lifestyle known as minimalism and discusse why these two successful businessmen eschewed their excess stuff in favor of focusing on life's the more important aspects: health, relationships, passion, growth, and contribution. The authors discuss how minimalism allowed them to focus on each area, citing personal examples of how they changed everything in their lives over a two year span, during which time they left their corporate jobs, got out of debt, changed their diets, started exercising regularly, strengthened their core relationships, established exciting new relationships, began pursuing their passions, contributed to more people, and found ways to be content and happy with their lives. The final chapter, Confluence of Meaning, binds together these five dimensions and asks the reader important questions about his or her life. This book's content is different from the content at TheMinimalist.com. While the authors' website documents their journey into minimalism and their continued growth through experimentation, this book discusses minimalism in a different way: it discusses in great depth the five dimensions of living a meaningful life. It also gives the reader much more insight into the authors' personal lives, into the painful events that led them to journey into minimalism, and into their world outside the web.
