Clear the Clutter

Tim Sanders over at Sanders Says recently encouraged his audience to "dump the junk" in preparation for 2010. Clearing out the clutter before launching a new year could be just the thing to energize us and help optimize our potential in the new year. Tim suggests that you consider dumping "commitment clutter" as well -- taking a good hard look at your calendar, and making decisions as to what is really most important, and what will move you clearly toward your goals.

Can you think of ways you can de-clutter your life as we wrap up 2009?


  1. Great post!
    I definitely need to do some de-cluttering.
    I think I'll create a "to-de" list tonight!


  2. Kerry, this promises to be a great blog! As an educator many students and faculty will read your blog. Therefore you may want to include some women leaders and leaders from other cultural and ethnic communities. Some outstanding examples would be Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Golda Meir and Cesar Chavez. Others may enjoy reading about Jacqueline Novogratz's rise to leadership in the non-profit community in her book "The Blue Sweater." Although young, Jacqueline helped women improve their access to resources to start sustainable businesses in Africa. The newly released film "Made in L.A." documents the remarkable journey to leadership of three young Latina women in their efforts to change practices of unpaid labor and slave-like conditions in the apparel industry. Regarding the environment consider Annie Leonard's 20-minute film "Story of Stuff" (view it on the website of the same name)and the film "Fresh" highlighting leaders in the area of food. All document young leaders living with integrity and working for the common good today.
