Life has a lot of clutter whether we try to clear clutter or simplify or not. A component of clutter clearing to think about is prioritizing and re-prioritizing. What do priorities have to do with clutter? Lots. Clutter distracts people from their priorities. It pulls them off task and even sends them in the wrong direction.
A good friend of mine once said she can re-prioritize on a dime. That's important. A parent can leave a partially sorted pile of mail on the counter to go help a child in distress. Is that person disorganized for doing that? Of course not! The parent put a higher priority on her child than her paper clutter. The point to getting rid of clutter is to achieve the benefit of more time and energy for priorities.
What do you think about the relationship between life's clutter and life's priorities?
