Action is today’s name of the game. We take action day for books clutter. This is a 15-30 minutes max day.
Step 1 – Review your Goal
What goal did you set yesterday? Read it, feel it, own it.
Step 2 – Set your timer for 15-30 minutes (and only 30 minutes)
Stick to it.
Step 3 – Go to Your Books Space
Use bins or just pieces of paper to mark the spaces as shown below.
Step 4 – Sort Through Items
Grab 1 item at a time.
Place items in their respective spaces.
Don't touch another item until you put it in a space.
Don’t do anything else, just sort.
Step 5 - STOP – When the Timer Goes Off
REALLY!!!! STOP!!!! I don’t care if you are in a groove. I don’t care if you are having fun. STOP!!!!
Step 6 – Classic/Autographed Items
Place them back from where you got them.
Step 7 – To Donate/Pass-On
Move to the holding space you created in week 1 when we looked at clothing/shoes clutter.
Step 8 – “To Schedule” Items
Place them back in their original space but separate from the “Classic/Autographed” and the unsorted books.
Step 9 - Reflect & Congratulate
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.
Tomorrow – Continue Sorting Books
