IMA Planet Indy Series, The Toby, May 20

Sarah Susanka is a visionary who happens to be an award-winning architect and best selling author. Her mantra is â build better not bigger, build to last, build to inspire yourself daily.â � Her life is a personal and communal quest to bring reality to Gandhiâ ™s philosophy: â We must be the change we wish to see in the worldâ �. Itâ ™s not down-sizing, itâ ™s about smart-sizing in everything about our lives from the â to-do listâ � to the â ™I want beâ ™ wish listâ �. While most of us in the capacity audience were probably not in the market to hire an architect to build a new abode, Iâ ™d wager each of us left with at least one realistic idea to put into action to make our life less frenetic, more pleasurable and yes, beautiful. Too much stuff to deal with is not merely clearing out the clutter â " itâ ™s re-thinking how, where and why we live. Susankaâ ™s "Not So Big" philosophy transforms us beyond our physical habitations into how we inhabit our lives. She advocates that when we embrace the purpose of our lives, we can make our home a place of quality, not quantity. Visit Susanka at
