A “How-To” with Gay Hendricks

Mike is psyched to share today’s new podcast episode with Gay Hendricks because he guarantees it will have you rethinking your relationship with “stuff.”

Gay opened Mike's eyes to some profound insights about how eliminating excess possessions and complications can create more space for your true genius to flourish.

Gay talked about going through his closet each year and getting rid of anything he doesn't absolutely love wearing. Imagine only surrounding yourself with clothes that give you an “erotic experience” when you put them on!

They also explored the concept of identifying the handful of people who light up when you enter the room – and prioritizing intimacy with them over shallow social obligations. Gay's annual “table of eight” tradition for ringing in the New Year is a fascinating exercise in conscious relating.

This episode will inspire you to start editing out the nonessentials so you can focus on what you truly love. You may even find yourself ordering some luxuriously soft merino wool t-shirts or cashmere socks from Wales after listening!

Whether you're drowning in clutter, overwhelmed by commitments, or just feel stuck in a rut, this conversation gives you an amazing recipe for injecting more simplicity (and love!) into your daily life. It's bound to leave you feeling lighter and freer.
