Emergency, Feeling Over-Crowded
Feng Shui is the only way!
Panic has set in! HELP!!! I must roll it back.
It's like Kudzu under my own roof.
Have to save myself from being completely swallowed up in a sea of obsolete ideas, notes, how to's, and paper clutter that has been accumulating over the past 10 years.
Not joking. What a mess! I don't like clutter in any form. I'm usually uncomplicated, neat, and you might say organized. I've never been so scattered before. All over the place. Not practical.
Clutter affects your thinking and your creativity.
Was sleepless last night. Fish eyes, counting sheep, insomnia. Couldn't sleep a wink because I couldn't stop thinking about the huge amount of useless clutter that has taken over my life.
There are three tall file cases in my office that are packed with folders and files having to do with online marketing.
In contrast, I have a little 3 drawer file in my studio reserved for my design business, and it contains everything I need. Even that one needs to be edited and updated.
Information becomes obsolete. Even contacts and resources become obsolete. Ideas in note books, or on paper napkins, or random slips of paper are worth preserving though. You never know. Something you thought of 5 years ago may suddenly come into its own time. It's happened to me.
Where did all this IM stuff come from? How did it pile up? Ugh! Can I sell it on EBay? In truth, can't even give it away.
I don't remember some of the names on the files, or what they were for. I paid for the programs, because the receipts are there. So, they must have had some value at the time.
Uh oh, I'm in a dangerous mood.
Don't like stagnation. Information overload alert!!! No one can absorb all that plus all the current info online as well. However, if it's irrelevant, what does it matter?
In the middle of the night, I started pitching. I'm pitching now. I imagine I'll be pitching the rest of the summer. Probably will work my way over to clothes closets and housewares. Then the garden is going to get relieved of excess and certainly the weeds. My websites are getting a 180.
Nothing is safe.
TOTAL CHANGE! Keep only what's relevant NOW! The rest is baggage. Out with the baggage!
No one performs at their best in the midst of chaos.
I have a work table that I share with my most current files, files with things like usernames and passwords just in case I forget. I guess that's okay for now.
Clutter impedes your progress. It makes you hysterical. Stresses you out. Well, most of us anyway.
You make fast tracks when you streamline.
Anyways, when you get rid of unused material, you forget it was ever there, and you've opened space for the "new" to happen.
Message to self, and to you too, if it applies: GET RID OF CLUTTER. Simplify. Focus.
Now, I'm tired.
Happy weekend guys!
Your buddy, J.
