Purposeful Consumption (Books, Movies,…)

This list will definitely grow as I build out this blog. I will suggest books, music, movies, and other experiences that I believe will help you improve as a Minimalist Manager. I don’t necessarily endorse everything in each recommendation, but I endorse the essence of their message.

If you shop through my links I will get a small commission. I will donate at least 25% of everything I make through this blog to Water.org.

I am a musics fanatic. Concerts are probably my favorite type of event to attend. Each of these recommendations is meaningful to me.

I And Love And You – The Avett Brothers

Chance the Rapper – Paradigm shifter

Mr. Misunderstood – Eric Church

A Rush Of Blood To The Head – Coldplay, so much better back then…yes that was an old man thing to say.

I love Prime Music. If you are an iTunes person, I get it.

I love these films. They will make you think and feel…or maybe just laugh.

The Man Who Knew Infinity – Focus, intensity, purpose.

Good Will Hunting – My favorite movie. Self discovery.

The Dark Knight Trilogy (Batman Begins / The Dark Knight / The Dark Knight Rises) – Life on a mission, plus explosions.

I LOVE Amazon Prime! It delivers lots of content and service at a very reasonable price. If you have to buy stuff, Prime makes it easier…but don’t forget Mom and Pop.
