It’s time to remove the clutter standing in the way of your personal growth. Discovery of Less: How I Found Everything I Wanted Underneath Everything I Owned by Chris Lovett provides you with a practical how-to guide and his personal memoir mixed into one. If you are addicted to being busy or surrounded by clutter, Lovett will ensure you don’t let ‘excuses, comparisons, and mistruths spam your mind and pollute it with self-inflicted limitations’. Given what we have been through with the pandemic, Lovett’s book is timely, advocating a minimalist lifestyle, focusing on living more, rather than owning more. It rids us of the thousands of pounds of unused gear, the clothes we buy and never wear, the poor eating choices with a fridge full of food, and the meaningless tasks that keep us feeling unfulfilled and stuck at work. It all has to go. The Discovery of Less will provide readers with food for thought when pausing to consider what is important while inspiring them to let go of ‘stuff’ holding you back.

In Discovery of Less, Chris Lovett asks himself important questions about what is blocking him, what he values, and who he wants to become. He finds out what it’s like to be the new guy again, this time in his own life. Lovett is authentic in his writing and acknowledges his girlfriend’s support as both take time out from their careers to step away from just drifting along. The interplay of their ‘team’ and the impact of their wonderful worldwide walkabout gives lessons for slow travel, how to pack, and gives a lovely context for Lovett’s personal growth. Once he proactively participates in his own life, Lovett moves from strength to strength, in the end stepping into a speaking career. A smart and witty book, written by a clever and experienced author. Discovery of Less is perfect for the do-over your life needs – full of intention, inspiration, and the value of second chances. It’s not too late to change your approach. You’ll find everything you need in the Discovery of Less.
