Sunday greetings, everyone.

cluttered shopI mentioned last weekend I was in Port Angeles, Washington, USA. The idea for that trip began when a client of mine from the UK told me he was travelling to Port Townsend, WA for a memorial service. It was nice to meet him.

For the rest of my time "over there" I stayed with my Good friend, Juan Ruiz, who also lives near Port Angeles. Some of the time we spent together involved Juan and I decluttering some of the things he had accumulated over 20 years in his tech business. During one of our sessions I disabled over 100 hard drives, to make the data on them unreadable, while he pulled apart some servers and other equipment.

That decluttering was a good warmup for doing the same thing for my business. While I almost have victory over clutter at my desk, the same cannot be said for my shop. In recent years I have really been noticing the energy drain that comes from clutter which slowly enables the things I own to begin to own me. But I am happy to say that in the last two days I have been making great progress. My shop is becoming emptier and the back of my pickup truck fuller in anticipation of a trip to the dump. I can even walk around in front of my work bench now and I am excited about finishing the job!

If you have a space in your home or workplace that has been messing with your peace of mind, why not take an hour and do a bit of tidying and throwing out? It might inspire you to do even more!

Enjoy the rest of today's mailing.
