Last year, I uploaded this deck, Simplify Your Life, and was incredibly humbled by the thousands of views, downloads, wonderful comments, being featured on SlideShare, and even having people list it as a favorite.

Since I was recently asked to speak on this deck, I went through and redesigned it, updated it, and updated its look, feel and content.

I hope you all enjoy it as much as you liked the first one! Cheers!
