This is Podcast 102 and it's about using information. Are you good at gathering information? How about taking notes, on a seminar or a book? Maybe you write in the margins of the handouts, or maybe you create a dedicated binder for all your fantastic notes. But… what happens next? This podcast is about time management, productivity, procrastination, decluttering, organizing, self management and more. In each episode I talk about challenges and problems in those areas and give you great ideas...

Stop Acquiring

8/8/2018
More
Podcast 101: Stop acquiring. Last time I talked about completion, that is, including time to put away whatever you just brought home or got in the mail or used for some purpose or that's out because someone else didn't put it away. Sure, blame someone else. It stands to reason that the more stuff you have, the more completion you need to do. Wouldn't it be nice to have less to do, so you have more time for fun? This podcast is about time management, productivity, procrastination,...

Completion

This is podcast 100! Wheee! Today I'm going to talk about completion. Some of my podcasts are about concrete actions you can take to get more organized or use your time better. A lot of them are about the concepts that underlie these actions. This podcast is about time management, productivity, procrastination, decluttering, organizing, self management and more. In each episode I talk about challenges and problems in those areas and give you great ideas on how to overcome them. Sometimes I...

The virtual team

6/27/2018
More
This is podcast 99 and it's about a productivity tool I call the virtual team. You assemble a virtual team with people in your life to help you be accountable. I came up with this idea for one of my clients who's a consultant. He works for a company but doesn't have an office there. His job involves working with people from different departments on different projects. So for the most part, he's running the show. This podcast is about time management, productivity, procrastination,...

Working on your own

6/12/2018
More
This is Podcast 98 and it's about getting organized on your own, whether it's just you, a couple or a family. If hiring an organizer isn't in your budget, what can you do? Well, I'm not going to dissuade anyone from working on their own. It certainly can be done. This podcast is about time management, productivity, procrastination, decluttering, organizing, self management and more. In each episode I talk about challenges and problems in those areas and give you great ideas on how to...

Sorting

5/29/2018
More
Podcast 97, this one, is about sorting. Back in podcast 61 I talked about general sorting principles. I find sorting to be easy and even kind of fun. Do you remember the Sesame Street recurring sketch called "One of these things"? In the sketch, there were four objects and one of them was different from the others. This podcast is about time management, productivity, procrastination, decluttering, organizing, self management and more. In each episode I talk about challenges and problems in...

Four tendencies

5/16/2018
More
This is podcast 96 and it's about being a questioner as one of the four tendencies. If you've been listening to me for awhile, you know I love to ask questions! I love to ask what I call stupid questions, the ones that people don't ask because they take the answer for granted and it doesn't occur them that they even CAN question it. This podcast is about time management, productivity, procrastination, decluttering, organizing, self management and more. In each episode I talk about challenges...

Prioritizing

5/2/2018
More
Lack of prioritizing is a big reason that people get overwhelmed and do nothing, or they focus on the wrong things because they're not looking at the big picture. To me, the most important factor in choosing priorities for how to spend your time each day is how well they reflect your life goals. After all, there's no point in being productive and efficient if you're spending time on things that don't matter. The podcast is about time management, productivity, procrastination, decluttering,...

Know your end point

4/17/2018
More
Know your end point. One big reason that people put off doing things is that they seem like they'll take forever. I've talked about this idea before in terms of breaking off small chunks of a project so you're not overwhelmed by the whole thing. The podcast is about time management, productivity, procrastination, decluttering, organizing, self management and more. In each episode I talk about challenges and problems in those areas and give you great ideas on how to overcome them. Sometimes I...

Each week I go into greater depth about one of the 52 ways. Some weeks I’ll take on different organizing topics. If you’d like to comment on the podcast, please leave a review! I read all your...

Being present

3/21/2018
More
Today's podcast is about being present. In several podcasts, like the one about emotional clutter, that was #47, I've talked about this concept. The present is the place where you are okay. Where life is happening. If you're not in the present, you're missing out. Plus, you're often in a negative emotional state. The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get Organized, available on my website. Each week I go into greater depth about one of the 52 ways. Some weeks I’ll take on...

Make your bed

If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed. I think that's pretty inspiring. Some of you may know that making the bed is one of the five simple steps you can take to create a relaxing bedroom, the subject of one of my books. The full title is Five Steps to a Relaxing Bedroom and you can find it on Amazon and on my website, cluttercoach.net. The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get Organized, available on my website. Each week I go into greater depth about one...

Finding the real truth

More
This is podcast 89 and it's about finding the real truth. I had a breakthrough with a client yesterday. We've been talking for months about different storage options. She has a very specific preference, even though it has significant problems. Basically, she wants open shelving instead of cabinets or bins. The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get Organized, available on my website. Each week I go into greater depth about one of the 52 ways. Some weeks I’ll take on different...

Not seeing what's in front of you

1/31/2018
More
This is Podcast 88 and it's about not being able to see what's in front of you because of how it's defined or named. Naming and defining are important. They help us differentiate things from each other. We assign them attributes that contrast them with other things. The other side of that is they become tied to those attributes and so identified with them that we can't see them in another light. The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get Organized, available on my website. Each...

Design thinking, part 2

1/24/2018
More
This is Podcast 87 and it's about the other three stages of design thinking: ideate, prototype and test. This carries on from the previous podcast. Ideate means coming up with ideas to address the problem you identified in phase 2. This is the time to go wild and think up as many ideas as you can. The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get Organized, available on my website. Each week I go into greater depth about one of the 52 ways. Some weeks I’ll take on different organizing...

Design thinking

This is Podcast 86 and it's about design thinking. I got reintroduced to this concept by Chris Wilson, the founder of Unstuck School, at a workshop he gave recently. The five stages Simon identified are empathize, define, ideate, prototype and test. Although they're called stages, they don't always happen in order and sometimes they loop around. Each stage informs the others. The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get Organized, available on my website. Each week I go into...

Mastery

This is podcast 85 and it's about mastery. A new client dubbed me the Clutter Master. It made me smile because I just watched a kung fu movie the other night where two men vie for the title of wing chun master. Imagine me holding my hands board straight and moving my arms gracefully into position to attack my enemy: clutter! The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get Organized, available on my website. Each week I go into greater depth about one of the 52 ways. Some weeks I’ll...

This is podcast 84 and it's about new year's resolutions. Of course it is! It's January 4 and if you made any resolutions, the holidays are definitely over and you have to face putting them into action. If you didn't make any resolutions, or think they are complete baloney, listen in anyway. The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get Organized, available on my website. Each week I go into greater depth about one of the 52 ways. Some weeks I’ll take on different organizing topics....

Paying attention

12/28/2017
More
This is Podcast 83 and it's about, mindfulness, or paying attention. What I mean when I talk about being mindful is nothing to do with Buddhism or meditation, it's just paying attention to the present moment. In podcast 53 I used the word meditation, so let me explain. There, I meant a state of mind you can get into to help you carry out mundane tasks. It's a state of gentle focus, of turning your attention away from distractions. The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get...
