Rose Lounsbury is on a journey of decluttering and minimalism from Dayton, Ohio. She says entrepreneurs are high achievers, but they often need to learn to let go and let go of the guilt. This the same as decluttering in real life.
Reducing paper in your life tips:
Create one inbox; it’s your “intake” it is just a temporary collection point to process.
Have a one day of the week where you R.A.F.T. the inbox to stop the drowning in paper.
R.A.F.T: Read Action File & Trash
Readable piles are magazines, articles, etc.
Action piles maybe bills, invitations, or something that needs a response, or delegate it to someone who needs to deal with it. You can also transfer this to a digital To-Do list.
File piles are for things you need to keep, but first, ask this:
1) Is this relevant?
2) Is this a recent issue?
3) Can I find this information elsewhere (online)?
Trash piles, this may take time. But work through it!
Deal with memorabilia separately, make a separate pile at a different time.
