Whenever I think of goal setting, I think of de-cluttering. It’s hard to start out the year fresh with a desk full of papers, an office full of boxes, a house full of stuff. I’ve moved five times in the past seven years, so de-cluttering my house is not all that hard because I have to do it for each move (okay, so after the first two, I made myself do it for each move
Today, pile all those papers sitting on your desk into a box and set it next to your office chair. Done! Today, you can write, read, play, etc. without any stress.
Now tomorrow, go through the box. If you have more than one box of papers, do one box a day. I know, I know. Sounds way too easy and honestly, just saying it IS the easy part. It’s sitting on the floor, scattering these papers out next to you, and putting them in a file folder that’s the hard part. But it can be done, one box at a time.
When the box(s) of papers are put away, you can start on the boxes cluttering up your office. Again, do one box a day. Then move onto the next room. Breaking it up into little sections help a lot.
Tell me about your de-cluttering stories. Is it as simple as I’ve tried to make it sound???
