#114 – “Out of clutter find simplicity.” Albert Einstein

Clutter clouds your mind and saps your energy. My method of clutter control is to set the timer for 15 minutes, then spend that time clearing something out. After 15 minutes, I get a reward like a chapter of a book and a piece of candy. Treating myself like one of Pavlov’s dogs works for me. I am always surprised at how much clutter I can get rid of in 15 minutes of concentrated effort.

This is something I learned years ago in a behaviour modification class I took at the University of Minnesota.  That class changed my life.  

 

 

Here’s to simplifying our lives.

When I was young, I made a lot of bad choices. The only way I knew to dig myself and my family out was to go to the library, always hoping that the next book I read would change my life and thankfully, often many of them did. Out of gratitude for the happy life I have now, I decided to share what I have learned, and continue to learn. I hope that Tuesday Tips helps you as much as they have helped and continue to help me.
