A one-minute coaching vignette on The Four Principles of Clutter Control

You need to get rid of clutter before clutter takes control of you—your career, your job, and your job search. Clutter will take over if you let it. Your life will go a lot smoother when you practice the four principles of clutter control:

Either throw it out, give it away, sell it, or keep it in it’s own place.

When you haven’t used an item from six months to a year, throw it out, give it away, or sell the darn thing. However, if an item is part of your life and you use it a lot, then have a certain place for it. Nobody needs to remind you about the old saying, “a place for everything and everything in its place.”

Your work suffers when your desk, office, or cubicle gets messy. And so does your job search, home life, and career. To manage any kind of project or activity you have to organize. And the first step in how to control clutter is to get rid of stuff that’s junking -up your workspace by using the four principles of clutter control.

If you’re a job candidate, you’ll find lots of tips about how to organize your job hunt in chapter three of my book,  “Your One-Minute Job Finding Coach.” Click here to order.
