When we think of clutter, we think of the messy closet. We think of the desk with too many papers, sticky notes, and notebooks on it. We think of the locker that has all of the papers scattered and notebooks squished together.
We think of clutter as actual, physical things that result in an untidy mess. There are countless things that can be found in that clutter. There might be enough things in the clutter to start an eBay business.
However, people don’t think of mind clutter. People can’t think of mind clutter because as the name suggest, mind clutter clutters the mind. It’s difficult to think of it or realize it’s even there. If you realize mind clutter is going on, another person probably won’t see it that way.
Mind clutter is all of those TV shows and commercials you see while trying to type a sentence. Mind clutter is that video you’re hearing when you’re working on your project. Real clutter can also result in mind clutter because working in a helter-skelter environment doesn’t work too well.
Your mind is a crucial part to your success. If your mind gets distracted, your work reflects on that. The only way to adapt to mind clutter is to do things very slowly. It ends up taking a minute to write a single sentence. It either takes much longer to accomplish something, or you don’t do what you wanted to accomplish as well as you could have.
Mind clutter is everywhere, but not everyone knows about mind clutter. There’s more clutter in the average mind than there is in the average closet. Get rid of the mind clutter, or take a break from the business.
