Quote of the Week
“Letting go of items or memories connected to bad emotions can make you more lighthearted and make you feel better.” -- Genevieve Parker Hill
5 Tips to Simplify Your Life, via Genevieve Parker Hill
- Declutter your stuff
- Are you a purger or a collector? Identify your own attitude toward stuff.
Blaze and gaze strategy: Blaze -- Imagine a fire engulfs part of your home. Keep
only what you would want to keep from a fire. Gaze - Important paperwork or
sentimental items; Items worth holding onto and look at individually.
- Focus on your one thing and own the opportunity cost. When you focus on your one thing, you say no to many other things.
- Apply the Pareto principle or the 80/20 rule.
- 80% of your results come from 20% of your activities
- Let go of emotional baggage and increase lightheartedness. Digitize and minimize sentimental items.
- Let minimalism give you permission to pursue what you truly want wholeheartedly.
Kelly and Maria’s Takeaways
Kelly: Own the opportunity cost of making the podcast grow, even though it takes time and money. Ask myself what 20% of work this past year produced 80% of my results?
Maria: It’s painful to let things go, like commitments, but it’s important to let things go to welcome the things I really want to do. I’m going to be open to change.
