Identify your weakness

(Chocolate obviously…)

With regard to your things and clutter; is your weakness:
Difficulty getting rid of things?

One of theses areas is probably a more significant struggle for you than the others.
Understanding which of these actions you are most challenged by will help you focus 
your attention and intention on that aspect of the process.
Enabling you to make some small, but powerful changes.

Challenged by Acquisition?
            Try not shopping for a week.
            (Trust me, Amazon will still be there) 
            Drive past the garage sale. 
            Ignore the ‘clearance’ table. 
            Leave your credit/debit cards at home.

Feeling disorganized?
            Start by establishing homes for the things you use every day. 
            Put your keys in the same place. 
            Set up an area to deal with the mail. 
            Don’t put things down, put them away.

Can’t seem to let go?
            Think of who you know that really could use the item, right now.  
            Stop giving Justin Case room in your closet. 
            Acknowledge that was then, this is now; and purge accordingly.

Merely paying closer attention to your thoughts and actions will help you change your behaviors.
The more frequently you exercise your new options, 
the faster you’ll turn your weakness to a strength.

Some days will be easier than others, 
some parts of the process more of a challenge depending on the items involved.

Living a less cluttered, more organized life is a practice and process.
