Inside This Episode

  • Motivational Quote

  • Must Read Book

  • Productivity Tip
    • I think clutter creates a feeling of unrest and chaos.  I look at keeping the clutter at bay by taking small areas at a time and organizing, cleaning, purging.  I may clean out a drawer or closet with my ear buds in while carrying on a conversation on my iPhone.  If I take a room at a time, or a drawer at a time, eventually everything gets cleaned out and my house stays uncluttered.  I have a real sense of accomplishment in knowing I am keeping on top of things.
