A one-minute coaching vignette on how to control clutter — part 2

As we discussed in the previous post on Your Career Service about the four principles of clutter control, you need to take control of clutter before clutter takes control of you.

The reason for having a personal method for clutter control is that your work and job search suffers when your office, desk, or cubicle gets messy.

Before you formalize your plan for how to control clutter, chill out for a minute by closing your eyes. Now visualize what you want your neat and organized space to look like. Got the picture? Good. Now believe in the possibility this visualization will bring some order into your work experience. The next step is to write down your plan for clutter control and make a commitment that you’ll practice the methods you’ve jotted down in order to make your place look exactly as you’ve just visualized.

And here’s a quick tip for uncluttering your bookshelves. Whenever you buy a book give away a book.

As stated in the beginning, you need to take control of clutter before clutter takes control of you.
