Blog: The Nature of Being Organized
Completing The Old Creating The New

Clear out the clutter! The Chinese have a saying "A cluttered space equals a cluttered mind." Our physical space directly impacts our mental space and vice versa. When we let go of physical and mental clutter we automatically feel lighter. Holding onto what no longer serves us pulls at our energy. As we open up the space it allows for new things to come in. The Universe always moves in to fill a vacuum. Incompletes become mental clutter. What is it that you need to complete or eliminate in order to move forward or make room for something new?
As we head toward the end of this year, take a look back. Make a list of all the wins, successes, breakthroughs in all the areas of your life. Make a list of all the losses, disappointments and breakdowns. List five things you've learned or are in the process of learning. What do you need to finish bringing the year to a close and feeling complete?
One way to take care of your "to-do" list is to follow the Four D's of completion. Do it, delegate it, delay it, or dump it. I follow the 2 minute rule. If you can do it in two minutes do it now! Do you need to ask for help? Find someone to delegate the task to. Maybe it's not something that you can allot time to at the moment. Delay it. Put it in a file or safe place and mark the time in your calendar when you will complete it. Does it serve you? Is it necessary or important? If not dump it.
Now imagine the year ahead and write a list of all the accomplishments, wins and breakthroughs. Write the list as though it's already happening. Create an action plan. Set up whatever support you might need.  See yourself having the space for anything you desire.
Whether it's mental clutter or physical clutter, eliminating it or completing it gives us a sense of spaciousness and freedom. Get ready for more good to come into your life!
