“I have absolutely everything I need. And yet, I have barely a fraction, and absolutely no chance, of ever acquiring all the things that I fleetingly and frivolously want.” Michelle offers that being satisfied with what we have can be achieved by applying golden rules of minimisation and simplicity.
