How to keep the right things in your life and business so you can thrive
How to keep the right things in your life and business so you can thrive!
In a session with a client the topic of environment overwhelm came up. And I totally get this because during the day my desk can look like a tornado hit.
The simple answer is: Keep the good stuff discard the rest. Sounds simple right?
Then why do we still have so many clothes, shoes, magazines, cables, trophies, pictures, key chains and the millions of other things that clutter up our life? And if you are in business its worse, there are apps, and papers, staplers, a million paperclips, pens, tape, folders and envelopes with scribbled messages that at one time were surely important.
We keep this stuff because we think we are going to miss out, and we are attached to the memories about how that item makes us feel. But the deep question to ask yourself is how is this helping you today, right now where you are in business and in life.
Because what I have found is that most of the stuff is really just weighing you down mentally. It is dragging your mindset into a space where you aren’t allowing in opportunity, abundance and growth.
And as heart centered entrepreneurs we are all in business for opportunity, visibility, abundance, growth, impact, and more.
So here’s my shortcut on how to cut down on all the stuff and keep what’s right for your life and business:
Focus on one thing. For now I am only going to use the example of de-cluttering your desk to have a clear mind.
1. Clear everything off your desk. Everything.
2. Now go through the stuff and determine if it is a necessity for today or if it is just a memory holder. If it’s a memory holder get rid of it. Now if its something that makes you feel happy and motivated then keep it to remind you of doing the work that matters to you.
3. Now put back the few things that you absolutely need and love on your desk.
The key to this is to know it’s a process. Every end of day I reset my desk so when I come in my desk feels ready to get to work. If for any reason I am working on a project I just use folders and pull out those things I am working on and it keeps me organized, focused and helps me get through tons of more work as well as stay on deadlines.
If you don’t love the environment you are in change it. It’s up to you to determine how you want to feel in your business and life. You have to be deliberate in how you run your life. I love feeling empowered and creative in my business so I do everything I can to make sure my environment is aligned for that feeling. What action will you take to feel that way?
