It started 150 days ago when I was maintaining a full-time job at Jeeon, a part-time job at Digitruck and another contractual job offered by Lex, who is a professor at Columbia University.
At Jeeon, I was doing a software engineering job, at digitruck, I was leading a team and taking care of their software infrastructure by doing the devOps related tasks and with Lex, I was helping him in his research on arsenic detection in Tube-wells, by developing some software tools and android app. And yes, I maintained all 3 jobs concurrently.
To be honest, it was very stressful for me. But I needed that, I was exploring myself, to maintain these 3 responsibilities properly, I needed to be efficient and productive. And at the top of that, I needed happiness. Soft and simple happiness.
I took one week break from all of my responsibilities and started to learn and seek happiness. I studied many theories, many stories. Among those, one simple concept has blown my mind, and that is minimalism. I will write details about my version of minimalism later, but today I want to focus on my outfit choice.
Some of the minimalism blogs I followed, almost everyone has this common. Wearing the same dress every day. At first, I found this funny. Funny and lame. Lame and pointless.
But still, so many people are following this, there can be a reason. So I decided to give it a try. I bought 13 different grey t-shirts, 5 black pants and 2 black shoes, initially I committed to a 30-day experiment.
I am writing this post after 150 days of this experiment, and I am still wearing the same dress every day. Here’s why.
There are many more benefits actually, I couldn’t express properly how this simple lifestyle added happiness and efficiency in my life. This is something you won’t understand unless you try it for at least 30 days.
Hey there, I am Saadnoor Salehin Shwapneel, a software engineer working at Cefalo AS, ISee more..
