Extra Points – De-Clutter

This week’s focus point…


This past week my family had a yard sale for the first time ever. We “hired” my sister-in-law to come over from Wenatchee and commandeer the event. I stayed as out of the way as possible. A yard sale is a lot of work and I’m thankful my wife, daughters, and sister-in-law did the heavy lifting. In the end, we got rid of a lot of “stuff.”

How much “stuff” do you have overflowing in your life? “Stuff” that is personal, professional, old, new, and everything else in between. Barb and I know we need to de-clutter. We’ve known it for years, but after taking on a ton of my parents “stuff” after my dad died, it became a real life issue. We made at least a 50% dent and went a long ways towards getting us to where we need to be. Most importantly however, it is a great burden that seemed to lift off of our shoulders. Carrying around “stuff,” whether material or emotional, will weigh you down and bury you. In order to ultimately move forward, gain momentum, and reach your goals, you must eliminate that “stuff” or you will never even get on the tracks. Don’t wait for the “right time” because it will never come. The real “right time” is now.
