Welcome to my first blog. After numerous years of contemplating, I have finally got around to starting a blog. I currently work in the education sector and specialise in Computing. Prior to this, I have fifteen years of experience working in the IT sector, supporting software and hardware needs.
The aim of the blog is to share my interests in digital minimalism, useful tools for both professional and personal use as well as mindfulness. Having spent many years running around frantically jumping from one task to another, I wanted to find more balance to my life.
I happened to randomly stumble across a documentary movie on Netflix during a stint of pure boredom and a need for some dopamine. It was called Minimalism: A documentary about the important things (link). That was five years ago. The 78 minute movie directed by Matt D’Avella follows two individuals, Joshua Fields Milburn and Ryan Nicodemus, who efficiently highlight the many noises in our lives and how they made changes to become the Minimalists so many people know them by these days. This documentary movie changed my life significantly and it is the reason why I have the time to focus on what is important in my life (hint: It isn’t materialistic things).
Everything I do now and everything I bring into my life has to add value. If it doesn’t, it goes. Hopefully, the content I write for this blog will help others.
