Ever since I've been renovating my basement the house has turned into a pile of clutter. There are boxes and papers everywhere. Everything is very clean but just out of place.
I want to discard as many things as I can without throwing out some valuable or sentimental items.
Clutter keeps building up as if some force or intelligence is battling against me.
One problem is reading books about how to make my life simpler and uncluttered, instead of taking action. This wastes a lot of time and energy.
Is there some intelligence causing the clutter? It would be nice to put the blame on someone else.
Maybe my wife is messing things up just to be mean. But that would not make any sense.
I could blame it on goblins.
But I don't believe in goblins. Sometimes it just seems as if someone is
messing things up.
I believe the real cause is entropy.
Here is a video that explains it best.
This is a bit too theoretical and not practical for what I need.
So I'll just have to set aside small blocks of time and energy to work on small areas of clutter. Maybe a half hour or so a day.
Wish me luck.
If you have any ideas that you think might help, please let me know.
