so haven’t chimed in much on this thread. But I’ve been watching and thinking “hmm, this 15-minutes-a-day stuff might work nicely here too. And Kathy you’re right. It’s very similar to the “change the mindset” involved with Oli. Once that habit is formed, and that mind-set has shifted, it’s easier to stay with it forever. I hate to take on yet another “new thing” this year already, but this one seems pretty worthy. And we certainly need it. Sigh. Where to spend my 15 minutes today?
Every morning between shuttling kids I have about 20-25 minutes. I used to spend it checking email. I’ve decided I’m going to spend it decluttering, and started with the home “office.”
I have let it go so long that you can barely tell I’ve made a dent, but I’ve gotten rid of a bag of trash, disposed of last year’s unnecessary mail and cleared a path so you can actually walk through it.
More importantly, I’m starting a habit and getting out from under the burden of STUFF just like I am developing the habit of getting out from under the burden of debt.
