Sallie Felton, co-author of the e-book "Clutter Free and Clear: Take Charge of Your Time and Space" joined me today on Beyond Lip Service. Sallie challenged us to reflect on the waus that clutter effects us, while defining clutter in three broad categories:
She suggests setting non-negotiable appointments with ourselves to get specific tasks accomplished, actually scheduling them in your day planner.
Take the task and break it into 15 to 30 time segments makes it more manageable. One of her suggestions was to put on a 30 minute CD and work on the task until the music stopped. I thought of it as task musical-chairs; with a little discipline (keeping the appointments with yourself) all the chairs (tasks) will be removed as you go! Clutter can overwhelm us, Sallie mentioned that when we fudge on our appointments with ourselves we are really making the statement "I’m really not that important. I can let it slide…" Would you let your kids or someone else important in your life "slide?"
Speaking of kids, listen into the last 8 minutes of the May 5th Beyond Lip Service where we talk about great things to do with kids artwork… some things I never thought of. Drop me a comment or note share some of your declutter ideas.
