De-Cluttering My Life

September 30th, 2009 in Organization[ No Comments ]

Last Friday I spent a whole day with Dr. Carol Look ( on “Clearing Clutter with Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).”   Held in New York City with more than 70 people in attendance, we discussed all the different ways we collect stuff.   The range of physical things we collect, buy, hold on to just in case we need it is endless.   Holding on to stuff that never seems to be useful is based more on filling emotional needs than a real need.

We easily translate the acronym K.I.S.S. into Keep It Simple Stupid!  I’ve read on Wikipedia that this statement came about because of a need for the engineers to design an aircraft that can be fixed by an average mechanic in a war zone with limited tools – hence “keep it simple and stupid .” 

I’ve never liked calling others or myself stupid, so I use Keep It Simple Sweetie…more gentle, compassionate and warm.   Yet, no matter what you call it, it’s important to keep life simple.
