If only I’d learned this earlier! At a glance, the diagram below seems easy and something that should already have been codified in all organizing techniques, but unfortunately, it’s not immediately apparent. We want to sort out too much and we want to go too fast. Then, we fill surface area after surface area until we’re trapped. Instead, let’s vow to keep a certain space clear for sorting through our “errant projects” or “clutter boxes.”
I didn’t feel like I made a dent even after spending nearly two hours packing. It’s frustrating because while I’ve still got time to get everything moved out, I want to be further along than I am. It’s not like writing an essay, where after a certain point, I can call it done. Let’s explore that sensory overload anxiety so I can figure out how to circumvent that before returning for another round of packing.
