Organizer (1) ー 5 Conditions to be a Materialist

English, Español, Français, 日本語

I try to be a minimalist being surrounded with few stuff. The benefit is agility: the last time I moved out, it took just half a day.

I try to be a minimalist without carrying much staff when changing a country to live. The benefit is economical and mental friendliness: the number of baggages I brought when  I moved abroad were quite few without extra charge nor container service (1 suite case and 1 backpack from the U.S. to Chile in 2013 and from Chile to Mongolia in 2015 and; 2 suite cases from Mongolia to Mauritania in 2018 mainly for ingredients for African life)

I try to be a minimalist without much stuff on my work desk, namely a computer screen, mouse and a cup of water. The benefit is lack of distraction which enhances focus and productivity.

Have I always been trying to be a minimalist? The short answer is NO. In fact I  was way far from being a minimalist, and what is so called a materialist. Now I believe in  minimalism as it has  some key points for a better life.

Happy New Year 2019ーAccumulation

Happy New Year 2019 from Mauritania (West Africa) !!

Please receive my warmest greeting and new year card I drew, hoping that our 2019 will be the year of “accumulation” as said in Japanese calligraphy “蓄  (Chiku)”.

Pig is the last of 12-year cycle of Zodiac animals and the symbol of preparation and patience for new big start, as well as of going straight.

It is my hope that we keep accumulating what we learned through “Fly High” Cock year 2017 and “Make Effort” Dog year 2018, to progress even further.

Please take care of your mental and physical well-being, and I hope to see you somewhere in the near future,

P.S. Probably you might see something from pig drawing.
