As you can see in my picture that there is dust and cobwebs on my "knickknack". I have had this sitting on top of a shelf in my home office for years. It is supposed to remind me of a major goal I aspire to.
I have started a special course called "21 Days of Abundance" which is part of my art group. Day 2 is about keeping it simple and removing clutter and distractions from my life. In this course, one of my assignments is to find someone or several people to be my accountability partner. Of course I did select my husband, but for this part of it - I am going public and asking all of you to be my accountability partners.
My first assignment (which will take more than a day or even a week) is to clear clutter from my desk, computer desk top, emails and files. Then to add a monthly prompt on my phone to "clear the deck" as a reminder to do this on a monthly basis. (I've already started by removing unnecessary Facebook feeds.)
The "keep it simple" also adds to the equation. I often over think and complicate what I want to do. 'A' leads to 'B' which reminds me of 'C' and so on. Or I think so much that nothing gets done. Being that this course is for artists... this must be a common problem, ha ha.
The goal is to be creative with quality and satisfaction for the rest of my life. To be me with no regrets.
