Joshua Fields Millburn, who at age 27 became the youngest director of operations at a large telecom company in the Midwest, had been asked to craft a plan to close eight retail stores and terminate 41 workers. But when he handed the report to his boss in early 2011, it included 42 names. At the top of the list he’d written his own.
Okay, so well this is nothing new . . . A book written about 1,000 years ago tells a similar story, but possibly in more depth - "The Little Flowers of Saint Francis." The "little flowers" are short stories of Francis, a young twenty-something playboy, wealthy guy who was also knighted and gave it all up to be a minimalist in the strictest sense of the word. He had it down to one tunic and one pair of sandals just as Jesus had asked. Once arriving at that point, in his utter poverty he began to receive supernatural consolations, God-encounters, visions and raptures of pure peace and heaven. Joshua and his friend Ryan are on to something tried and proven while reviving the universal path for all of us. It's all good!
