Wow, it’s been ages since I last wrote something on my blog.
But I want to start changing that and today I only want to say this to you:
If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. – Benjamin Franklin
And the idea is that I no longer want to leave things for “whatever happens”.
I have learned from first hand experience that whenever you start putting your goals down on paper, things actually start aligning to start happening.
So today, on the very first day of 2016, I’m making extra space in my house by removing all the junk I can, from my life.
I don’t want useless papers anymore, no matter how “important” I believe they are.
The same goes for that old diskette drive that is USB based, I’m no longer interested into “hacking” old computing systems.
Same story for all the ads I trimmed from newspapers when I was collecting possible offline leads to work with.
The list is practically endless and I don’t want to bore you with the specifics but I’ll focus on three things I’ll get rid off:
- Useless papers of every type.
- Old clothes that are not in a prime condition or don’t fit anymore.
- A ton of digital junk that is not relevant today and have plastered all over six different hard drives.
Today, I’m sharing with you what my office looks like (see photograph).
It’s been quite interesting to see I was building websites professionally since 2005 (that’s ten years ago!) but I don’t know why I never actually looked at internet marketing until at about 2008 or so.
Actually I know why I didn’t but I don’t want to make this blog post any longer.
If you want to get something positive out of reading this and looking at my office mess right now, make it a task to get rid of anything you feel like is holding you from making any further progress.
You may not believe this but getting rid of physical or digital junk allows you to think much clearer (btw I know nothing about psychology so take this advice with a grain of salt) and start getting things done.
So I hope you’re already taking big steps towards making 2016 a fantastic year for yourself.
