The definition of clutter is “a collection of things lying in an untidy mass” and is synonymous with confusion, chaos and disorder.

I am one to adhere to the belief that a cluttered environment doesn’t necessarily mean that everything in that environment has served its purpose, outlived its usefulness and is no longer necessary or needed.  I do however, believe that  in this age of digital overwhelm, digital clutter has become and will continue to be have a major impact; one that negatively impacts productivity.

I read an article by Elizabeth Larkin that categorized physical clutter into five areas and found it interesting that these same  five categories apply to digital clutter as well albeit with a little twist.

It doesn't matter if your goal is to clear physical clutter at your desk or physical clutter in your digital repositories, increase productivity, spend less time at work, pull yourself out of the doldrums, change your attitude about a situation, lose 5 pounds, gain 5 pounds, learn a new sport, understand social media, plan a vacation, have a difficult conversation, get married or remodel a room in your houses; whew!

The place to start is planning, and this terrific planning tool known as The Productive Environment Process™ developed by Barbara Hemphill is one of the simplest no tech ways to approach the planning process.

 5 Simple Questions with profound results, but don’t let its simplicity fool you; it’s been used for all of the ideas listed above and much more.  You can utilize this process for something you want to accomplish this week and I’d wager it will take you less than 10 minutes of your time right now!

Download a free template here and use it to accomplish a goal this week.

I’d love to hear how you use this powerful tool – share your goal, you success and your experience at Simplicate Life on Facebook
