Several times in the past month, the notion of “making time to think” has come up. I heard it mentioned at the last PRSA Kansas monthly meeting. I read about it in several books. I heard it mentioned on a podcast.
I love the idea of making time to think – blocking time to do nothing. And I know that’s when the creativity is at it’s best, but it’s hard to “stop and think,” especially in this create-on-demand world. Creating white space allows you to plan, create and maximize your productivity.
While it’s important to allow for “white space” in our head, what about the white space around you? Do you have clutter in your house? On your desk? In your closet.
Yep. Yep. And yep. 😒
I’ve been trying to clear the clutter. I did go through our kitchen items and get rid of a bunch of things we don’t use. I also cleared out my closet of clothes that do not fit anymore or that I have not worn in several years. It felt good! But there’s still so much stuff!
And don’t get me started on the digital clutter. I’m a total digital hoarder. Enough said.
