Yesterday I shared with you the importance of clearing your physical space at home and at your office. This does not have to be overwhelming. There is an easy approach to tackle this task, that I learned from a business coach I worked with. She was saying that a cluttered office, desk and home hinder our ability to focus on what is most important in business and in life, as well as the ability to stay focused until we fully complete a certain task.
The 10 minute method makes everything so much more manageable.
Here it is:
Buy a kitchen timer and set it up for 10 minutes. A few times throughout your day, start the timer and for 10 minutes clear and organize a drawer, a pile of bills or laundry, a corner of your desk or a shelf of books.
Just do only 10 minutes at a time. Be fully focused for 10 minutes on your de-cluttering task. You will be surprised by how much you get done in only 10 minutes.
By using the kitchen timer, going through your list becomes easier to handle and you get to see day after day after day the effects of what 10 minutes of full focus can accomplish.
There are greater benefits that you will be able to feel all along the way: a great sense of accomplishment, a quieter mind and less emotional turmoil.
Absolutely doable, right? Go get started! You will be grateful that you did.
Clearing physical clutter is a POWERFUL EMOTIONAL LENS CLEANER.
