On our Quest for a Surface, we have now moved into Quadrant 3.
Allotted Time: 30 minutes
I was hoping this would yield simply a clean and minimalist work space. But, oooooohhh the treasures I find on my journey to minimalism. I guess finding disgusting junk on my desk keeps this blog alive and jumpin’.
I promised when I started this adventure/lifestyle that I would bare my soul with brutal honesty so I must confess to the items I found.
Underneath the clutter and mess I discovered:
1. My electric pencil sharpener that I thought I lost three years ago.
2. My three-hold punch that I haven’t seen in about six months.
And, this one is the one that I debated on listing, but since I promised honesty:
3. A half-eaten bag of chips.
Oh yes, a bag of chips, which I was scared to open in case someone had taken up residence in it.
Breathe in. Breathe out.
Well, thank God it’s gone now! And, after the embarrassment of posting that, I will now reveal Stage 3 of
“Baring my Soul for Minimalist Wannabes Worldwide!”
Look! My desk is brown! Who would’ve thought!
So far, the Quadrant Method is working, and I am well on my way to a neat and clutter-free work area, where I will enjoy sitting and writing all of my thoughts into my blog, instead of being depressed and blah about sitting here. Nice, huh?
My next battle:
That tragic use of a filing contraption that now sits on my desk to the right of our printer. I am planning my strategic attack of decluttering as I type! Watch out, “important papers that I can’t throw away!” You are about to meet your dooooooooooom.
Until then, happy minimalizing all you lovely Christ-following Minimalists out there! To see me Baring my Soul from the beginning, click here.
