If you come to my home, you won’t find walls crowded with artwork. You’ll see beautiful paintings and photos with lots of breathing room around them. The tables and counters aren’t cluttered with tchotchkes and trinkets. You’ll find a lot of clean lines and open space. Why?
Because living in harmony creates harmonious thinking…
To keep my thinking clear and creative, I need to be in a pleasant environment. When as my desk starts getting cluttered, my productivity goes down. As soon as I notice the encroachment, I stop whatever project I’m in the middle of – do an organizing and cleaning, and only then proceed.
A huge part of success comes from the mindset you operate with. And your mindset is dramatically influenced by your environment and surroundings.
So have you given much thought to the clutter in your life?
What does your desk and working space look like? Is your home “busy” or clean? Are you in a harmonious environment that promotes clear thinking and creativity?
What’s your schedule like? The clutter that comes from not knowing how to use your time can create deep drops in productivity.
And what about the people in your life?
Oftentimes the most important de-cluttering you can do is to remove certain people from your life.
You have people who doubt you, ridicule you or tell you why you can’t succeed. Some are even well-meaning ones. You have others that waste your time or are always talking about negative things. And what about the ones who come around with jumper cables, looking to suck all the energy from your body?
Some of those people, you simply need to eliminate from your life! Others that isn’t possible, but you can limit your time with them. And counter program with positive influences.
So if you want to have an amazing day, week month or even life – lose some of the clutter.
How you doing on that?
