Most people know that clutter isn’t a good thing. I don’t mean light clutter or the normal untidiness, but serious clutter will hurt you. Both in your personal and your business life. If you have serious clutter anywhere, it is affecting you. Whether it’s in your:
- Work area
- Client files
- or anywhere else where you spend time.
It makes you feel tired, frustrated, out of control. It makes you less focused, less productive, and less creative. Studies have shown that clutter overloads your senses. As entrepreneurs, we rely heavily on our focus, productivity, and creativity. So there are many good reasons to deal with it before it gets too bad. I’m far from the tidiest person there is, but when the clutter reaches a level where I feel it affecting me, I deal with it. I hate housework, but I won’t let myself be limited by clutter. I’ve been getting better at keeping the clutter away the last few years, though. So I rarely have to do a really big clean-up.
