OAC 324 De-Cluttering. So Much More Than You Think!
Manage episode 225528264 series 1004420
This is the audio version of my recent LIVE FB post that I promised to send via mp3 file for your chosen format. You can definitely hear the transition from my headphones to the webcam recording. Working on blending it better...
Do you dread de-cluttering? I seem to get on a tangent and start without meaning to. Once in awhile I'll put it on my 'To-Do' list which I really call, 'My On-Going' list, but that's when I have my daughter involved. She is a Professional Organizer.
What I've found in this practice, with or without her present, is that while sorting, discarding and 'Goodwilling' I find long lost treasures I had forgotten about. That quote that moved me. The precious memory preserved in a picture. The link to a cooking website - now that's funny, 'cause I don't like to cook. However, I love to eat, so if it's easy I will make the attempt, thus the link.
But I think you've got the picture. You find unexpected gifts within the piles you've unintentionally created. Now maybe you did it on purpose, but I find stuff gets away from me. But I've been told I was the most organized sales rep in the advertising world, but then how can you not be if you need to follow up, etc. I had to be, then. However, I'm not so organized now as I do my own biz, so piles accumulate and my energy is diffused. So this is just my perspective on how important de-cluttering is to our life. I'd love to hear from you on what your tricks are to keep you out from under excess accumulation :-) And please share this - someone might need to hear what I found out. And thank you so much for listening! Passing On A Smile,
