Yesterday I hung out with some friends who are thinking of moving to my small town of Woodland Park, CO. As I was showing them around we were talking about the house they want to build. All 300 square feet of it.
In a culture where bigger is better and more impressive, this couple wants to go ultra small. They’re tired of unused and wasted space and they’re going to simplify their lives in a big way when they make their next move.
I don’t care what size house you live in or how much stuff you have, but I think you should be unreasonable.
Be unreasonable in your marriage: don’t settle for average, strive for greatness.
Be unreasonable in your work: don’t settle for an ok job, fall in love with your work.
Be unreasonable in your relationships: don’t settle for surface level, go deep, get vulnerable, and know everything about the people you do life with.
Be unreasonable with your schedule: five days a week of nine to five is boring. Mix it up and include your family at odd times.
Unreasonable for me is the only way to live. What do you need to do to become more unreasonable?
