Going Beyond Minimalism
Hey, I’m Ronald L Banks – I’m the founder of the Clarity Club.
I started my journey toward more clarity months after graduating college.
In 2015, I got hired for my first corporate job, which required me to travel often.
These experiences opened my eyes and challenged my thinking, which prompted me to ask several important questions.
- What do I value?
- What kind of life do I want to create?
- What does holistic success look like?
- What changes am I willing to make?
Even with the traveling and the experiences I’ve gained, I felt trapped under the weight of my clutter that ultimately controlled my freedom and flexibility.
In 2016, I started decluttering my entire life.
I spent hours working through my mental and emotional clutter, the brand-new, unworn clothes in my closet, and anything else I felt was in the way of me obtaining creative freedom over my life.
My ambition shifted from career to values-oriented.
Rather than focusing on career achievements, I became obsessed with creating a life that allowed me to:
- Put my family first
- Prioritize my core values
- Pursue work that inspired me
In 2019, I became debt-free and paid off $23,000 worth of student loans in 12 months.
In 2023, I quit my job to pursue more meaningful work.
Today, when I’m not building the Clarity Club, my priorities are being a great husband, father, friend, brother, and son.
I’ve redefined what ambition and success mean to me.
I no longer believe that happiness is found through status, achievements, or a set number of possessions.
But instead, it is only found in those things that matter most deeply to us.
I invite you to join me on this journey, which has changed my perspective (and hopefully will change yours too).
About Clarity Club
It is gratifying to have the freedom to prioritize the things and people that matter. However, it can be challenging to know how and where to begin.
To make matters worse, you may feel like your efforts to do so are not making much progress.
Our mission is to help you break free from feeling stuck and live a life you have creative control over. So, every week, we share evidence-based advice and practical guidance to help you conquer your clutter, prioritize your values, and pursue meaningful work.
We believe there’s only one way to ensure you live a life you have creative control over – and it’s not wishing or hoping for it.
The only reliable way to find success on this journey is through constant, disciplined pursuit of more clarity.
We help you develop a clarity mentality.
Instead of relying on best practices, surface-level tips, or tactics, a clarity mentality empowers you to push against the current and own your life and work.
