I don’t love clutter, but I don’t hate it either.
I try to chalk it up to creativity… though I think, deep down, my inability to keep my office, my side of the bedroom, my computer’s desktop, and other personal spaces clear of clutter just makes me look lazy.
So, starting today, I’m tackling the clutter in my life.
It starts with some small steps – I’m sorting my inbox (1,429 messages to file… ugh), organizing my desktop and celebrating by grabbing some new June desktop art from Smashing Magazine here (thanks to Kenny Conley for the idea).
I’ll tackle my desk and the boxes of unsorted papers under my desk later this week.
What’s cool is, after thinking about this idea for the last couple of days, I’m taking this clutter-free concept to my ministry approach.
I’m going to be looking for areas where clutter occurs, whether that clutter requires actual cleaning (VHS, here’s fair warning, you’re not making the cut), or if it’s a matter of streamlining our processes, I’m going to make it my mission to clear our clutter by the end of June.
Wish me luck.
I think I’m going to need it!
