Random clutter is stuff that just sits there taking up mental space in your life, even when you don’t realise it. It’s like having a computer that’s running a lot of old and useless programs. You’d be surprised how you’ll feel when you free up the energy.
Get random and …
- Clean out your Kindle books that you didn’t like
- Change passwords to represent your new goals
- Back up and clean off your computer now to make room for the new one
- Clear up your “to read” list of books if you didn’t get past the first chapter. (You have permission not to finish them)
- Tidy up and minimise cord clutter – decide on a cable box or zip ties to get rid of all that ugly cord clutter.
Clean out your virtual office …
- Facebook Groups – Which ones are you getting value from? Which ones are you not even engaging with?
- Facebook – Who do you see being a positive influence in your life? Who do you not really care to have in your private circle anymore?
- Twitter – Who has given you tons of great content or value?
- Instagram – Whose photos bring you joy? Whose photos are not resonating with you?
- Pinterest – Which boards or pinners bring you inspiration or strategies?
