This post and series that follows will help you identify exactly what’s cluttering up your space, and what to do about it.
Top Clutter Culprit: # 1 – Email
Where to even start?
Email is overwhelming for a majority of us. But the fact is, it’s still one of the most efficient ways to communicate, get things accomplished and also market for business. Two things are key to keeping it efficient: 1) that you use it in a thoughtful way and 2) that you remain in control of it, rather than it taking control of you.
On my previous blog, I wrote 5 Tips on how to Simplify Your Life: Regain Control Over Your Inbox
Take a look at those posts for some practical ideas, including the two I believe are the most valuable:
Delete & Unsubscribe
Before you even start reading and responding to messages, check all the items you won’t read/have no need for and click Delete. Then you can focus on what you do want/need to attend to, uncluttered. If there are messages from a sender you subscribed to at one time, but no longer want/need, take a couple minutes to unsubscribe yourself. If you’ve been a heavy subscriber, do this for a few minutes each day and you’ll have a much lighter load. Don’t freak out about missing something – you can always subscribe again, or find their info on the web.
Also, I personally like using an email service like gmail, which organizes conversations under the same subject line. This cuts way down on the number of line items in your inbox, and makes finding messages more efficient, instead of scrolling and scanning through the email chain.

The proper use of feng shui in a work environment can nourish your spirit, improve your energy and concentration, and even smooth your career path and increase your prosperity.
A fact is a fact – if you’re not set up for success in your workspace you’re not going to find it.
As you may have read, I’m working on a brand new program to help people who work from home create a space that helps them meet their career goals.
Whether those goals are:
- growing a business
- making more money
- getting more done in less time
- feeling less stressed out
I’m looking for feedback on how I can help.
