Four types of clutter

There are four types of clutter:

  1. paper
  2. digital
  3. emotional
  4. spiritual

Most people consider clutter to be a tangible problem, but it is an emotional problem. People often experienced a severe emotional loss that leaves them physically paralyzed when they have to clear up clutter.

How to get rid of clutter.

How to get rid of clutter.

Three things contribute to clutter:

  1. A lack of focus. When you identify the most important tasks and understand why they're important, you can find focus. Then make a plan to accomplish those.
  2. A lack of systems. It's not enough to identify what you need in a system. You have to implement it.
  3. A lack of support. People need to work together and live a shared vision and values. That requires proper support through a five-step process: state your vision, identify your obstacles, commit your resources, design and execute your plan, and sustain your success.
