Too Much Clutter? Consider What You DO!

Too Much Clutter?  Consider What You DO!

When we think of clutter, we tend to think of things.  Our mind wanders to the stacks of boxes in the garage, messy desk drawers, or an unorganized closet.  Possessions can definitely bring clutter to our lives, but our actions can also be a source of clutter.  Our habits and behavioral responses can distract from what is important leading us to not be the successful, purposeful person we would like to be.   Habits can create disorder and detract from what is truly important.  For example grabbing a daily frappo-whipped carmel half-calf coffee drink before heading to the office may...

Where’s Your Clutter? Consider What You Have, Do, and Say to Spot Your Clutter

INVENTORY We tend to gather, collect, and hoard the latest and greatest shiny objects with the result that the honeymoon wains, and we forget why we bought it in the first place, we lose the motivation to productively apply it, or we just clear a space on the shelf or in a drawer for it.  To simplify what I am saying, we stand in line to get the newest gadgets and then something newer catches our eye and we move in that direction.  Its not really our fault, we are marketed to react. In the world of technology, if a product does not have an update in a few weeks or less, we have moved on, it...

Internet Addiction Disorder: Users Become Used by Technology

  “In this modern day and age America`s newest slogan is: Mom, apple pie and high-speed Internet. They say you can live two weeks without food, a day or so without water but take someone`s smart phone away, and that person won`t last 5 minutes.”   I have been signing off each email with this saying for years.  However, my observation was confirmed when I heard this week that the appendix of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, the book used by psychiatrists and psychologists to diagnose psychological disorders, will add “Internet use disorder” to the...

Having too much clutter, from piled to filed. Organizing my garage

CLUTTER: Having too much A key component of Simple Sense is identifying and eliminating the CLUTTER that builds up around us.  Clutter is quite plainly too much stuff.  It is too much going on. It is too much said.  All this stuff may be fun, but it gets in the way of what is important at the time and our overall goals and aspirations.   Clutter gives the gifts of stress and defeat.  By eliminating it, you won’t feel the stress of not finishing what you want to do.  You won’t feel the congested pressure of having too much around you.   This week I was reminded that...

Simplify your life means you have to start simple and commit.

Simplify your life means you have to start simple and commit.

SIMPLE SENSE STEP 1: START Before undertaking any program or plan of action you have to START.  When it came to simplifying my life I had to actually tell myself that I was going to START TO SIMPLIFY.  And, I had to SAY IT.  I had to say, “I am going to simplify my life.” I could write it down, I could say in my mind, however, both of those I could lose.  The solution, say it out loud, so you are both saying and hearing it being said.   Why out loud? I am making a commitment. I am making a verbal promise to myself, bringing the power of voice to potential action.   I...

Motivational Speaker Heads to Oklahoma to Talk to OkCareerTech Teachers about Simple Sense

Keynote Motivational Speakers Will Roberts   Keynote Motivational Speakers Will Roberts Well this week I visited the home state of my hero Will Rogers, Oklahoma. I was there doing a little speaking to folks about my take on common sense. You know that thing that everyone used to have but now only our grandmas and grandpas have.  And because common sense isn’t so common anymore, I’ve decided to repackage it and make it applicable to our modern Internet-driven age as Simple Sense. It’s pretty bad when you have to simplify something that is based on common...
