I remember feeling disgusted by Mark Zuckerberg’s grey shirt and jeans only wardrobe. How can a multi-billionaire mofo wear the same clothes every day? “He’s faking it for sure” I remember thinking – “he tries so hard to appear humble”. Saying that you want to clear your life to make it so that you have to make as few decisions as possible is great. But clothes? Cmon!
It didn’t make sense to me then.
But with time I learned more about myself. I’m not the cleanest person alive, nor the dirtiest rat either, but I love order and simplicity. I like my desk empty. One monitor, mouse, keyboard, and a cup of coffee – nothing more, nothing less. I dislike stumbling upon things I haven’t used in months.
Going minimalist, having less clutter, wearing the same clothes every day, was in my mind for a long time. I just didn’t have the courage to do it. Too much social pressure I guess. But fuck that. I’ma do me and focus on the things I truly care about.
PS: Zuck created a monster and it should be killed with fire.
