These are the before pictures & you can see there is lots of ‘stuff’ to sort through. I am starting with my office because I want to set a positive intention for launching Re-Thinking Home
Radical tidying emphasizes how you want to feel. Feeling is about listening to what YOU want, not what the world wants.
Here are some concepts & results I am looking to accomplish:
My office represents my interests, education, accomplishments, past/current
& future work.
I want to get organized so I am not distracted by clutter.
I want my idea files arranged to make writing easier.
I want to practice Radical Tidying to clarify my goals, & journal how it works to bring positive new things into my life.
My purpose/goal is to empower myself & others to make a difference in their lives, their community & the world using Radical Tidying as a tool to find their passion under the clutter.
The ‘practical’ - discarding & reorganizing things
List tasks, such as: move/add/eliminate furniture, get things off floor, sort office supplies, purge files,
Get 3 packing boxes & label them, Toss, Keep, Maybe.
Things to sell on Varage, Kijiji.
Sort by category, i.e. office supplies, keep what I need organize the rest.
Take pictures & record the old story & my new one.
Schedule blocks of time. Have a finish date.
The ‘feeling’ - letting go of emotional attachments
The feeling part starts with MY goal intention/purpose for the room.
What is my story now?
The office represents, work/career, so what do I want to do?
How do I want the room to reflect my intention?
Observe memories/feelings & record.
Process feelings quickly using body dowsing.
Only keep things that make me feel joy/happy & discard the rest.
