[Grime/Glitter] Animosity Toward Entertainment

We’ve arrived at such an entertainment saturation that we can easily discard anything even remotely disinteresting. I’m just as guilty as any of us. Removing anything that could distract me from accomplishing my goals could be a succinct explanation of my work ethic, and yet, there are proper ways to handle our discarded distractions. Now is the best time to consider the prevention of consuming entertainment wastefully, because we’re only getting more saturated by entertainment!

[Bettering Zeal] Cleaning Up Clutter

I’d never seen moldy coffee before. But there it was. An innocent example showcasing the disrepair that place was when I arrived, and not to brag, but I cleaned that place up quite well. Between that, my time moving furniture, knolling, 5S methodology, and philosophizing on the psychological dependencies of clutter, I’m becoming better at cleaning up the crap… I mean, clutter. Let’s run through six ideas I came up with while cleaning my workbench.

[Bettering Zeal] Full Renovation Lifecycle

During brainstorming for my current professional project, we threw around potential tools to use. Though we couldn’t implement one I’ve used before, that didn’t stop me from plugging in all of my tasks so I could brainstorm office renovation tasks on the go. After starting with just the office, “Zeal,” I realized I could apply the same process for the rest of my abode. Now I can envision Zeal as a full renovation lifecycle project.

[Bettering Zeal] Taking It Lightly

I’m taking it lightly this month as I apply the formal foundational ITIL workflows I learn to my office renovation project. I have big plans for this space; that’s why it’s called “Zeal.” Within Zeal, I imagine taking on most any project with ease. Having the physical space is key. If I want to, say, completely alphabetize and catalog my CD collection, I need to be organized, unless I want duplicates, wasted time, and clutter.

[Bettering Zeal] First Temp Shelf?

Last week, I turned these casual updates for improving my home office, “Zeal,” into a minor Project Management case study. I started a Gantt chart, which isn’t interesting enough to display yet, and I began thinking about this renovation project from more of a technical viewpoint. This week’s goal was to set up a temporary shelf to tackle some clutter. Halfway through this activity, however, I identified a reclining pain point, preventing previously planned progress…

[Rowing Machine] 2017: Week 48 {24X.X}

Word brevity prevents sentence clutter; room tidiness prevents house clutter. I was hesitant upon hearing my rowing stats platform would double their posting character limit because my writing has benefited from word count limitations and character restrictions. Just like decluttering a space, it’s tempting to fill in the new space with junk. If you’re careful with your planning, you can be effective with your storage solutions. Fitness is the same: rowing consistently prevents weight clutter.

[Bettering Zeal] Potential Collaboration Station

Cluttered items might lose their potential value because they can’t be properly used. Unorganized clutter caused a folding table in my office, “Zeal,” to lose its value as a temporary desk. A future phase of this office renovation project requires that table’s old space, and since one early idea I had for Better Zombie was to invite collaborators to jam on works such as artists to create short stories, now, Zeal has that collaboration space!
