Thoughts on Possessions: How to Deal with Clutter

Understanding clutter: What do we really need?

Looking at the New Year just a few days away, I think to myself: what possessions do I really need? How can I reduce the clutter? What should I do with things I don’t use?

The new year is a great time to create motivation for change.

One of the things I want to change in 2018 is to remove distractions.

With that in mind, I thought to myself: if I removed one material possession, each week, would I notice a difference? Maybe.

There are many ways to decrease the number of things I don’t need. I can sell them online, donate them to local charities, or if they are in bad shape, throw them out.

While I think a path to limiting distractions is to decrease clutter, it could be hard to figure out what remove.  It will take time evaluating things I don’t use or need.

In the long-term, these can be obstacles; acting as distractions while taking time away from goals.  I always recommend starting small, picking one room and seeing what you don’t need or don’t want.

Final thought

The more we free ourselves from distractions, the more time we’ll have for the important things. The more action we take, the more we want to take action.
