Podcast 286 | Enoughism

In this episode of The Minimalists Podcast, Joshua and Ryan discuss identifying how much is enough so we can subtract the excess to get there, and they answer the following questions:

  • What is “enoughism”?
  • How is enoughism different from minimalism?
  • Given that the key to transformation is understanding our ‘whys,’ why does anyone truly want more, and, conversely, why does anyone truly want less?
  • When it comes to a small business, how much record-keeping is enough and what is the ideal way to store it?
  • How does renouncing something create an attachment to it?
  • How do we learn to recognize the difference between enough and a false sense of security and comfort from unnecessary consumerism?
