Goodbye, Things: The New Japanese Minimalism Reviews

  • Kelli

    I’m not interested in becoming this extreme of a minimalist, nor did this book hold my attention, though I did finish it. This is super extreme...as in you only need one fork and nothing on the walls, as in you don’t need chairs if you “host” your friends at a local restaurant and use the local cafe as your living room. I found the sweeping generalization that you cannot lead a life of gratitude whilst owning a lot of things to be a little offputting, not to mention, very subjective.

    Overall, I d

    If you find the Konmari approach to tidying and reducing possessions a little too strict or kooky, then Goodbye, Things might be a good alternative (and a decent introduction to minimalism). I'm not a minimalist, but I'm increasingly finding that shedding my unneccesary possessions is making me happier and more satisfied.

    I liked that this book focuses quite a bit on the psychological and emotional benefits of reducing what you own. It's a very personal testament to how minimalism can improve one

    **I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.**

    Nothing better than throwing out everything you own to make space for nothing. All you need is a bed that doubles as a couch, one set of dishes to cook and eat off of and one towel to dry said dishes and yourself off with. What an easy-peasy, simplified life.

    ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?!?!?! ONE TOWEL FOR EVERYTHING?!?!?!

    That was the moment I realized a minimalist lifestyle was not for me. I know the author says to each their own an

    Quyển này nên đọc Hết mục lục, rồi thôi!

    Viết rất kiểu Nhật Bản - tức là kiểu ĐƯƠNG NHIÊN ĐÚNG

  • Nguyễn Quang Vũ

    Đầu tiên phải nói về cái Tít. Quyển này có tên tiếng Nhựt Bổn là: "ぼくたちに、もうモノは必要ない。 断捨離からミニマリストへ". Đương nhiên là tớ copy paste chứ hiểu chết liền luôn nếu không có thằng Google Translate. Ý cái Tít là: Không cần cái gì nữa, tối giản đi mà sống ... Đại khái thế. Xuất bản bằng tiếng Anh thì nó tên là "Goodbye, Things: On Minimalist Living". Nói chung là không có chữ nào liên quan đến việc cả nước Nhật sống như thế cả. Cơ mà dân nhà mình xính ngoại. Kiểu làm dạy con làm giàu thì học người Do Thái ...more

    Someone I follow closely once said that "a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions."

    This was a good follow-up to Sprok Jay and TLMOTU, but I tend to resonate more with the messaging of the first two than this one. This book did have some good insights on how and why to get rid of things, and also went into the philosophy of "the new Japanese minimalism." It's been about seven months since I first implemented こんまり and, though I've been pretty vigilant in keeping it up,

    1. Cuốn sách cũng đã tạo được cảm hứng về một sự thay đổi.

    Thực ra, đây là một cuốn sách về vứt đồ (tên tiếng Anh: Things: Goodbye!). Chỉ bằng việc vứt đồ, con người có thể sống vui vẻ hơn, tiết kiệm hơn, thật thà hơn, khoẻ hơn. Không còn cuộc chạy đua mệt mỏi tìm kiếm tiền tài và các giá trị vật chất, một cuộc đua mất cả đời người chẳng xong.

    Có những thứ tưởng như không thể thay đổi, như là vận mệnh cố hữu gắn chặt với đời mình vậy, nhưng chỉ nhờ biết cách bỏ bớt đồ đạc, người ta cũng có thể t

    Ơ hay lắm, không thất vọng xíu nào luôn. Trước đây cứ mỗi lần chuyển phòng là phải 20 chuyến xe máy dù cách nhau có 1-2 cây số. Thế mới thấy nhục.

    Nhiều lần có ý định chuyển nhà mà do đống đồ nên ngại cực. Thôi, khi nào đi học kiểu gì cũng bán sạch để sống cho thoải mái. Hồi nhỏ cũng thần tượng lắm kiểu sống cả tuần mặc mỗi 1 cái áo của anh Mark hay trong Noblesse, mà thật ra mình cũng xài rất ít quần áo, thế mà chẳng hiểu sao áo quần cứ chất đống lên trong phòng, khiến cái phòng 15m2 không có m
