Simplify Everything! Summer of Clarity Weekend Challenge.

It is rainy here on Lake Washington which opens up a great opportunity to take the S in the week 2 challenge – F.O.C.U.S. on What Matters seriously.

Here is a great resource to help you clear the clutter out of your life. The challenge is to go into every room or area of your house and throw away 100 things.  Record your wins on the sheet and report back to us on your progress.  Don't be legalistic but try to simplify every area of life.

If you don't simplify, you will be distracted by clutter and noise – therefore you wont' be set up to maximize your efforts and live a purposeful fulfilled life.  You can't focus on what matters if you do not have clarity.

If not now, when?  No seriously, put the date on the calendar and please share your story on what you simplified today!
