Conquering Clutter… and Other Hairy Monsters
Do you ever feel as though the little things you’ve left undone accumulate to the point that they close in on your space – both physically and mentally?
This video is about my experience with that phenomenon and what I decided to do about it one day.
Why conquering clutter is so important.
Just like our computers, we too can only handle so many programs running at once. When we succumb to procrastination and do not take the time to simplify and process things that need to be taken care of, things have a way of freezing up. In addition, our view of reality becomes warped as problems and challenges become magnified and the stories we tell ourselves about what needs to happen to get through them become frightful and intimidating.
To keep yourself from experiencing the overwhelm and frustration that comes from clutter building up in your office and in your mind, GET INTO ACTION and do what you are most afraid of.
Key points from the video:
- Clutter is frequently a result of not wanting to make a decision – which is often a product of not wanting to make a mistake.
- The things we leave undone accumulate until they begin to become overwhelming. Our space and our minds become cluttered when things take up more space than they should.
- To bust through your clutter, go directly to the things you are most afraid of and JUMP IN! Remember: You don’t need to get things done perfectly – you just need to get into action.
- Moving forward is far better than staying in the rut you might find yourself in.
“Always do what you are afraid to do.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
