MORE vs less: Do One More Thing Today

. at . Leave a comment

Day 13 – Doing “one more thing” was a great motivator for me today. Have you ever tried this mantra?

Do One More Thing — Just do one more thing. Do one more thing. Just do one. Do one. One.

This is my new mantra especially at the end of the day. I want to make my future self happy by being just a little more “declutter” productive each day. But does doing this one more thing make much of a difference? Truthfully, no.

No – not if today was the only time I did that ONE more thing. But what if I did one more thing, today and tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow, etc? THAT would make a difference.

So regarding your clutter, what is the one more thing you’ll do? Here are some ideas.

  • Set the timer for 3 minutes and see how many things you can fling. See this post for an explanation.
  • Declutter one book, one DVD, one item of clothing, one piece of paper, one fridge magnet.
  • Put the full donate box in the trunk of your car.
  • Put one thing away.
  • Unsubscribe from one online newsletter and delete that email.
  • Empty the garbage can.
  • Throw away one item from the fridge or freezer.
  • Put one item in the dishwasher or handwash one item.
  • Recycle one newspaper, one magazine, one plastic container.
  • Make an appointment on your calendar for YOU to read, create, take a walk, connect with someone, pray, have a specialty coffee and do nothing else, Sometimes the best thing we can do for our cluttered lives is to create space for ourselves to rest/refresh.

Day 13 –  31 Minutes of Decluttering = Today’s project was the OCC closet at work. I got so much done because I kept telling myself, “Just one more thing. One More. One!” I will finish the project tomorrow. I also packed my OCC boxes. I need to buy a few more supplies and pay for shipping for each box. This is also a project for tomorrow.
