How this relates to KonMari:

When we think about the why behind our material accumulations, it is only then that we can truly adopt the method of KonMari, Minimalism, and Ikigai. You may not have all the answers now, but from my experience, KonMari is the first step in understanding this. By honing your ‘joy detection’ for material things, it opens the door to that same sensitivity to joy in all aspects of life. KonMari is like hitting a big red reset button for your home, your life and your personal outlook. Don’t stop at KonMari, but use its foundations and teachings you push you further into understanding why.
