My decluttering in 2019 has spread not only to include my home and all its possessions but to my business and all the processes that are included in that and to my personal life and how I am spending my time.
I realised at the start of this year when I entered into a business revamping phase that I have been running my dropshipping and print on demand business for over 3 years now without any real structure to the daily business processes and promotion schedule!
That is crazy; to put it plainly I have basically worked on a week to week sometimes even on a day to day basis trying what I thought was a good idea at the time – eek!
Now I have not been unsuccessful with my business, luckily, but I have realised I could do better and by better I mean that by putting in some forethought and planning I could use my time more productively and therefore declutter my schedule. I will be sharing these planning techniques and process ideas on this blog.
Enter the Bullet Journal and the start of my planning journey:
I have been working on decluttering my house for many years and it is something I frequently start and then forget about. This year I want to commit to setting aside 15 minutes a day 5 days a week to getting my house in order. I will be using the same habit creation technique, using a habit motivation chart, as I implemented for goal 3.
This 15 minutes is not for the regular everyday cleaning we all have to undertake such as cooking, dishes and laundry. This is especially for those areas in the home that gather clutter and those boxes that are stuffed with things from when we have quickly “tided” before the guests arrive. My biggest issue is paper clutter and clothing so those will be my primary focus. What is your biggest clutter issue at home?
I have recently finished watching “Minimalism: a documentary about the important things” and “Expedition Happiness” on Netflix and I am now reading some books on the subject. Check these out if you haven’t heard of them.
We are now into week two of the new year and I have found I am still excited about making the changes required to achieve my goals for 2019 – how are you getting on?
