An Action Plan for Dreamers is a weekly 20-minute podcast where we provide practical and actionable advice about what it takes to create the life you crave. It’s short enough to listen on your commute or coffee break, but long enough to contain 3-5 practical steps you can take to make your dream life a little bit closer. Here is a link to our past episodes.
Do you have junk hiding out in the nooks and crannies of your home (or smack dab in the middle of the floor)? Whether your dream involves travel or not, lightening your load will make the path to your dream clear, uncluttered, and easier to travel.
We’ve already written the book on how to declutter your life, and in this episode we focus on the emotional blocks to getting rid of your junk and how to overcome them. With Warren being an organizing savant and me being a packrat, you are getting two very different perspectives on decluttering and how we made it work for us.
Your Action Plan Steps:
- Halt the accumulation with a 1 in/1 out policy
- Focus on just 2 statuses: It Stays and It Goes (you can figure out the sell/donate/trash status on your It Goes pile later)
- Start with the least emotional things (like snow shovels and staplers)
- Take back the power of your feelings and memories from inanimate objects
- Go slowly – you don’t have to do this overnight
