It’s really hard to get clear on what you want to do with your business if you have lots of “stuff” taking up room in your life. This can range from clutter in your home, office and mind :)
Living in a home that gives my heart joy is my daily mission. My home has not always provided me the joy I desired; but please allow me to share with you how I came to understand my passion of a joyful, loving home.
The day I realized my kids were affected by my habitual clutter creation was the day I decided to STOP THE INSANITY and take control of my home for me and my children’s sake. What happened was this; they walked into our living room filled with clothes, books, toys, furniture, people (okay they can’t get rid of us yet), and dust! Oh boy will their drooping faces be imbedded in my mind forever.
Who’s in charge…you or the equipment and supplies in your home office? Take a few minutes to figure out how much time, money and emotion you waste on equipment, reference materials and information you no longer use. When you’re finished doing this quick analysis, it should be easier for you to throw out, recycle or better yet, donate anything you don’t need.
- Remove all dinosaurs. Are you using out-of-date equipment or old versions of computer programs? Determine how much time you’re wasting using slow and inadequate equipment, and programs with limited capabilities. Computer prices drop daily, so determine if your time is worth investing in a new desktop or laptop. The money you’re saving by not buying new equipment may be costing you in lost time and productivity.
