Decluttering for Clarity
Clarity is the elimination of mental clutter, agility is the elimination of physical clutter. and tranquility is the elimination of spiritual clutter, says author James Clear. My daughter, Ali Stieglbauer, is joining us again to discuss decluttering to create mental, spiritual, and physical space. During our conversation, Ali and I share thoughts about why we tend to declutter during transitional periods. We also explain how saying no allows us to create more space.
Showing Up to Level Up
As our work culture has changed throughout the pandemic, many people believe that the rules have changed regarding physical appearance and showing up. However, not showing up in a professional wardrobe or with your physical presence on screen, does not allow for a level playing field. This may be an old school belief system, but you have to dress for the game you want to play.
Knowing When to Say No
When you’re pondering what things to eliminate — it’s really about knowing when to say no. Decluttering your life is about saying no to things, in order to elevate and level up. It can be difficult to say no, but it’s an essential part of being a leader. Ultimately saying no allows you to reach an ideal state of tranquility, agility, and clarity.
