Jaxtastic Life Spring Cleaning 30-Day Challenge - April 21, 2015 – WrapUp, Reflect & Forward Plan

Today we wrap up approaching storage. This is the day we will close this topic, reflect on how it went and what you felt and then finally we will create a forward plan (unless you dealt with ALL of your storage clutter).

Step 1 – Set your timer for 15-30 minutes MAX
Decide on your time and stick to it.

Step 2 - Reflect
Give yourself a pat on the back. You did it!!! Was this hard? Was this easy? Just reflect on how it all went.  Don’t make any of it good or bad. Just observe.

Step 3 – Forward Plan
You have options in your journey:
·       Move onto Tomorrow’s Topic: Book Clutter
·       Keep Focus on Storage: Schedule 4 days, starting Wednesday for the below:
o   Sort storage – days 1 & 2  & 3 of the four days
o   Re-review Keep Items – day four of the four days
o   Return to the challenge wrap-up April 29th & 30th

It’s All Too Much Book by Peter WalshThis reminds me of the old saying, “If you have to ask for the market price of the lobster, then you probably can’t afford it.” So goes with clutter & stuff. If you have to ask “Do I have too much stuff?” Then odds are you have too much stuff. I discovered this book years ago and have given it away many times. Peter is Oprah’s organization guy and although he’s an Aussie, he does have a Los Angeles base.
P.S. His latest book, Lose the Clutter Lose the Weight is available to check out for FREE on Overdrive.

Seth Godin (http://www.sethgodin.com/sg/ ) My mentor first introduced me to Seth Godin via his book Lynchpin. In this book he introduces the concept of the “lizard brain” that works against us, especially when taking on new goals, even if they are good for us. Check out his talk here: “Quieting the Lizard Brain.”

Pinterest (www.pinterest.com ) – This is a great digital scrapbooking tool. I have a Quotes and Inspiration Board where I pin quotes that call to me at any given moment. You can follow it here: https://www.pinterest.com/jaxlbc/quotes-inspiration/ Feel free to create your own.

Oh, The Places You Will Go, book by Dr Seuss – I received a copy of this book from my Grandmother Sargent when I graduated high school. It is an inspirational and fun book by Dr. Seuss that looks at the good and the not-so-good things that can show up in life. You can check out the audio version for FREE on www.Overdrive.com . You can also purchase a copy on Amazon.com: Oh The Places You’ll Go.

Meditation Society of Australia (http://meditation.org.au ) – I discovered this society when first pursuing the development of a meditation practice (I’m still pursuing it. J) They have free podcasts and are a great resource for learning to meditate. I was able to even listen to a podcast for the train. Give them a try.

Switch (book by Chip Heath & Dan Heath):  Earlier, I mentioned their book, Decisive. Switch is another book about change and the difficulty to change. It has a ton of strategies to take on change in your life. You can read the first chapter for free and take advantage of other resources here: http://heathbrothers.com/books/switch/
