Declutter your life

Updated: Jun 27, 2018

The following is an article “Declutter your life”

by Marc Primo.


Marie Kondo famously said,

When we really delve into the reasons for why we can't let something go, there are only two: an attachment to the past or fear for the future.

Being successful and the accumulation of possessions usually go hand in hand on most people’s minds. The thing is the more attached we become to those possessions the more they control us and distract from what should be important. Having too much creates clutter. Externally and internally.


Decluttering 101


If it needs doing do it.


We all have necessary tasks to do in life. Just do them. Do it right, do it fast, and do it consistently. Paying bills, shopping, housecleaning, etc. Get them out of the way and go on to what really matters.


Choose how your day goes.


Creating a daily routine can have many unforeseen benefits. The amount of time you save alone is rewarding enough. By knowing what you need to do on a regular basis, you don't waste time on decisions on where to go and what gets done first.


KEEP YOUR SPACE Clean


Keeping a clean and neat workspace is very important. Knowing where things are, avoids mix-ups and mistakes that can end up costing both time and money.


KISS (keep it simple stupid)


Make things simple. If going to the gym is on the daily list don't enlist on the gym that is far from home and takes an hour in traffic to get there. Find the closest one to your house or train in your own home to avoid wasting time and gas. Use this logic for every service or routine activity so that you can get the most out of every day. Of course, you can cheat when planning on a road trip or just a day in the beach.
