As previously mentioned, your stuff can weigh you down. It can create chaos and keep you stuck.
As I have collaborated with clients, I have used a technique of identifying a clutter hot spot and tackling that one area to help them become unstuck in the decluttering process.
A hot spot is usually a small space like a bedside table or a part of a counter that attracts clutter or that drives you nuts when you look at it.
What might happen if today you identified your clutter hot spot and just tackled it? You might be amazed.
I was talking with a writer and friend who identified that they were stuck and were having trouble writing. We identified that the hot spot in the home was the space at the side of the bed. When they started to toss trash and then continued by removing items that belonged in other rooms as well as excess books or “to do” projects located there, this person was able to start writing the next day. Coincidence? Maybe. But I like to think that by clearing clutter from that hot spot space, the person conquered chaos and opened a creative opportunity.
What space or hot spot are you going to tackle to help you get unstuck?
