The Beginner’s Guide to Zen Habits - A Guided Tour

I'd like to introduce you to one of my favorite places to visit, Zen Habits. Leo Babuta is the author of The Power Of Less. He believes that doing less doesn't necessarily equate with being less productive, and that owning less does not mean that we have less. The offerings you will find at Zen Habits respect the philosophy that abundance can be achieved through savoring simplicity.
