Want to Be a Minimalist? Do It Your Damn Self!

What’s good gents! I hope you’re not scared of getting your hands dirty. I’m not! I’m a big fan of finding ways to save money on things that most people complain about overpaying for. A great example of this is the repair of your car.
I don’t like other men touching my women. I don’t like them touching my car either. There seems to be this air of mystery surrounding automobiles and how they are repaired. Look, that’s a bunch of hype to separate you from your money. Here’s what happens whenever I fix my car.
I open shit up….take out the thing that’s broken….grab the new thing…put it in….rinse and repeat.
Although there are more complex tasks that should be delegated to a professional, I am confident that with some research and a delicate hand, you…yes YOU…can accomplish most, if not all, the tasks required to keep your vehicle in good operating condition.
Here in the matrix, it feels as if no one wants to work any more. And when we discuss the importance of minimalism to combat the bullshit of our society, we absolutely must take control of our lives and become more self sustaining.
You have your two hands.
I think the reason so many people are strapped for cash is that we just don’t do things for ourselves. It’s like we’re a nation of lords….who refuse to lift a goddamn finger for menial tasks like changing our oil.
If we’re going to take back our lives as men, live a minimalist lifestyle and have the financial prosperity to truly enjoy the good things in life, then we need to roll up our sleeves and put this work in. It is time for us, as the leaders of the new modern men, to demonstrate that we have the skills and guts to do anything our heart desires.
The next time you’re on the hook for an expense, such as a home repair, car or even your PC. Consider the option of foregoing the tech support and just popping the hood. I guarantee, with utmost certainty, you will find you have more talent than you think.
Peace, and stay focused!
