Anthony Ongaro: Minimalism and Avoiding The False First Step

If only… right? If only we had that new camera gear or just one more online course on the subject, then we’d have everything we needed to get started. But what if you already have what it takes? What if buying or borrowing your way to progress is really a false first step that will set you back instead of move you forward? In this talk, Anthony Ongaro, the creator behind breakthetwitch.com will share the story of how he found minimalism, stopped trying to buy his way to progress, and found a better way of life. After the talk, you’ll have the tools to tackle your next project and a fresh perspective on how to determine what you really need.

This is the first installment of our Ideas & Abilities* speaker series!
With all the focus on startups, entrepreneurs and business, we sometimes fail to think about the big picture. How do we navigate this crazy thing called life and find our place on the planet? And then once we’ve found that place, how do we make the most of it? For this series, we’re inviting local thinkers and doers to share their ideas on everything from finding purpose to practicing productivity. *With acknowledgement to the legendary Rhymesayers group, Eyedea & Abilities.

What’s your next big thing?

Partnering with the Twin Cities Geekettes and Gr8Ladies on Hack the Gap was my last ‘big thing’ and now that that is mostly wrapped up, I’m off looking for my next big adventure.

What’s your why?

I’m working on building the life I want to live. I choose the clients and partners I want to work with. I decide how much sleep I need, and how to get it. I set up shop wherever it makes sense for me, and wherever I’ll be most productive. I decide when to turn off, and when to turn on. I don’t want a life of spending an arbitrary number of hours in an arbitrary 10×10’ space. I want a life that includes me having ample time to stay healthy and happy, to be with the people I love, and to work on things that matter to me personally.
