If the sincerest form of flattery is imitation, then we're immensely flattered that we've inspired a post on sharing by Leo Babauta of ZenHabits. Leo, however, hardly imitates. He takes the usefulness of a do-It-ourselves post to a whole new level with 34 fantastic ideas. And does it in his trademark style.

Here's five ideas I can vouch for having tried them myself:

  • Give your books away to friends and charities.
  • Make things, and give them to people.
  • Share your tips with others online or through a free ebook
  • Hold potlucks every week, rotating among friends/family
  • Volunteer with a homeless shelter, soup kitchen, or other charity organization

Please read the whole post here.

I'm a big fan of ZenHabits. It helps me focus on the important things in life. It reminds me that sharing helps you live with less, and less stuff equals more life.

I also appreciate the movement Leo and other simplicity bloggers have catalyzed. And that they recognize that sharing is part of the movement. If art is essence, then Leo and the below simplicity bloggers help us lead more artful lives:

Thanks Leo for reading and sharing Shareable with your community!
