I’ve started decluttering, throwing out papers and shredding some of the confidential stuff. Doing a little bit everyday. I’ve cleared a little corner of the piles of matter in my cubicle – not much of a visible dent, but at least I’ve started somewhere.
It’s amazing how easy it is to declutter when you haven’t got any emotional attachment to the stuff anymore. It’s a bit of a surprise, but work actually gets easier and I function so much more efficiently when I don’t worry anymore about consequences, and any fallout if say I don’t do my work well enough. I wonder, if I can successfully transplant this mindset to my next job.
