Clearing the Mind Clutter

Clearing the Mind Clutter Mind clutter is overwhelming. I’m just arriving back from a Conference with over 500 Entrepreneurs in my industry. I have to say that I was a bit nervous…thinking about how that many “organizers” would act in one place. (Of course, I was assuming that they would be OCD!)

So, I worked hard at having everything together the evening before, and avoid having to stay up all night preparing for the Conference. I decided to take time to rest on Friday...

Whether it is in your home or business, emotions – both positive and negative – play a key role in our ability to stay organized and in our lack of organization.

If you are typical, you probably have a long list of Things To Do waiting for you to finish. WHY DO YOU PROCRASTINATE? Procrastination is our enemy. There are a ton of reasons why we procrastinate and we can spend an entire day writing down a list of them, right? According to Structured Procrastination – “Procrastinators seldom do absolutely nothing; they do marginally useful things, like gardening or sharpening pencils or making a diagram of how they will...

It doesn’t matter if you are a small home-based business or a Corporate CEO…too much paper clutter can be stressful. Paper Clutter affects everyone! This week I helped a Direct Sales Consultant work through her piles of paperwork.
