About

Hi,

Thanks for stopping by.

I’m Alastair and I’m a 40 something British Chap, who writes about Lifestyle Design for us grown-ups.

I’m interested in Minimalism, but with a healthy dose or reality.  Not for me is selling all I have and taking my backpack full of only 40 things (how many pairs of boxers exactly?) to gad about the world.  I have a family to support!

No, I believe Minimalism offers some excellent tools to help live a meaningful and happy life and it’s about choosing where to invest time, money and energy.

In addition, I write about Lifestyle Design, a loose term incorporating life hacks, clever stuff, working for yourself, health and wealth.

The days of a job for life and loyalty to one employer are over.

Hitting my mid-life and finding myself the proud father of a small person has been a shock, albiet a great one.  It’s reminded me that I only have a finite amount of time to live.  I want to make the best of that time and gain the most control of it.

In order to do this I’ll be looking at how minimalism, self-employment, lifestyle hacks, fitness, wealth creation and various cool tools can all help me on my journey.

If this resonates with you, please stop by, read, share and comment. Better still, subscribe to the blog in the box top, left so (a) you’ll never miss an exciting post and (b) I’ll know that somebody out there is reading!

Thanks for stopping by,

Alastair
