James Clear on the Imortance of Building Good Habits
"What attracted you to the idea of habits. Why did it resonate with your audience. Well they're probably multiple reasons. I mean one thing is you're building habits whether you're thinking about them or not. Garrett body is doing brain is doing all the time to get through life and pattern matching into just live more efficiently depending on which study you look at somewhere between forty to fifty percent of. Your behaviors are automatic and habitual. But that's usually referencing just stuff that like you think about like Brushing her teeth. You're tying your shoes or pulling your phone out of your pocket to check it. And i think the true influence your assets even greater than that you know who knows what the number is. seventy eighty. Ninety percent of your behaviors are either habitual or influenced strongly by your habits. So take for example. Checking your phone. I mean you could be standing in line at the grocery store. Just you know waiting for something of an extra peanut three minutes and you just kind of out of habit. Pull your phone out. Will you may think carefully about responding to that. Email that you're reading or you know a whatever you're reading on social media or playing video game but that menu of options the behavior that you're following was all shaped by the habitable your phone out so the our habits have a very strong influence on our lives and they.

The Renewable Heating System Right Below Your Feet
"One of the hallmarks of living in a technologically advanced society is even the little details of life that seem mundane and being astonishing. Like the fact that it takes five gallons of water to produce a walnut or that half the plastic. That's ever been made has been made in the past fifteen years. My favorite of these examples is what it takes to keep a room room temperature. Allow me to explain. Heating is generally done by combusting fossil fuel so first we have to find the fuel. Unfortunately it tends to be buried more than clutter under the earth's surface and all too often in inconvenient places like the arctic circle nations in conflict or under the bottom of the ocean and then there's the fact that the substance takes sixty to six hundred million years to form from dead plankton. So there's that issue we drilled these incredibly deep to get it then we pipe it truck it and ship it in tankers across the world to refineries which are these incredibly expensive industrial facilities that taking crude oil and gas which are just a bunch of different hydrocarbon molecules in order to sort those molecules into refined products refined natural gas is then delivered to homes and businesses via an invisible interstate highway system. Millions of miles. Long it's invisible. Because it's underground there are so much pipeline. In this system that entire steel mills have been built only to produce pipeline for this system and because there are millions of miles of gas getting pumped beneath us at high pressure at all times. Engineers send these intelligent. Robots called smart pigs through the pipelines to check for safety. Beck's doing this is called. Pigging the pipeline. Yeah that's a real thing. But even with these precautions there are accidents

"All right. Let's get going. I'm so excited to welcome our guest today and hanley to the show and first and foremost thank you for being here brand. Thank you for having mamik. I'm excited to to talk with you me as well and the reason i'm excited we get to talk about one of my favorite marketing topics which is content marketing especially around the field of personal branding. And your background speaks for itself in that in that space and it seems more people than ever are getting comfortable creating content which is exciting in some form or another But i'd love to set the stage here for the show in terms of the value of creating content Why does it matter. you know. it's funny. I don't even think about content as being separate from marketing. Necessarily i mean think about everything that you do on line. That's content in whether you are on twitter whether you are are on instagram. Where you and. I met where you are writing a blog post or emailing your list. It's all of that is content. And so i don't think it necessarily as two separate things you know. How do you use content in your marketing. Your content is literally your marketing. So i think if you the first thing is just to shift your mindset and think about everything that you do as an opportunity to tell your story to brand yourself to let people know what value you can offer them and grow your own business. That's the value of content on. I think what if we take it a step further if we have to think about 'cause creating content aids intimidating but we'll get to that But the idea of what makes a good especially good for your business. You know what defines good content versus just content that is cluttering things up a hear your perspective on that. Yeah i mean. I don't think it's very complicated. I think a good content is what meets the needs of your audience. What has value for them

We always time with unnecessary correspondents social media notifications and getting stuck in traffic. We feel like we're on this. Never ending. Treadmill to nowhere feeling disconnected and frazzled. Each and every day we're sleep deprived overweight and stressed out when all we really want is to get some zen so does living a life of zen look like traditionally the word zan has been associated with the quiet and austere buddhist sect which emphasizes silent meditation and personal inquiry however as the word has leashed into modern everyday. Life is evolved to mean something less esoteric and more practical. You don't have to become a monk to be then but will probably require some major life changes since we can all agree that today's world is decidedly nonsense in essence. Dr zan is all about spaciousness intention in peace and we can apply this wisdom to every aspect of our lives while somewhat challenging to define exactly. What zen is is easy to notice when something isn't then a cluttered workspaces not zen. A overpacked schedule is not zan. A phone or tablet that has constantly chirping and buzzing is definitely not zen. Chances are good that you can recognize things in your life. I give you that calm. Spacious feeling you can also feel when you lose. Sight of it is he. Zen is something that already exists. Innately within us we are born in perfect peace maddie's with our world and with ourselves but as grow up and take on the burdens of the world we lose touch with our inner nature however all is not lost.

"What do you do after the clutter threshold and you bring up castenbaum because those are people who i do absolutely recommend. They are very smart ladies. They talk about the same kind of stuff that i talk about from a perspective that resonates with a lot of you guys. That's actually how we met. Was you guys telling us. Hey we listen three of you anyway. So let's talk about this. My first response to this question is yea like in my notes i have. Why a why. Why why why why. Why not like. Why w. h. y. But like yes okay with six exclamation points because it big deal for somebody to get to the point where you actually editor the words when you get the win on decluttering like w. i n and life is so much easier i mean. Let's just take a moment and that's actually my first piece of advice here is to say take a moment and be so stinking proud of yourself like take a moment and realize what you're saying as someone who listens to podcast called a slab comes clean. Okay think about wherever you were in your life when you happened upon something called a slob comes clean which there are people in the world who literally will not even look at it because the word slob just mixing that or whatever but where were you in your life and in your journey with stuff that you stopped at the name of a podcast a slob comes clean however i i don't actually have the name of the person who wrote this on there so anyway but i'm just saying i want you to be proud of yourself.
Twitter For List Building With Madalyn Sklar
"One of the things that i saw of is interesting about twitter is would you say it's the place where people really build a personal brand stronger than a business brand so like we are robin kennedy on there as opposed to anything else How does that work. Yeah you can definitely build a very large personal brand on twitter. So it's a level playing field so it allows you to be able to connect with people in in showcase yourself who you are what you do with everyone else on there. So everybody's kind of the same when they're starting at listen. We all started zero when we're on twitter and any other social networks so it's what you do from there to build up. That's really important. What i really love about twitter as well is. It's the fastest moving. Which means the deepest connections can be made fastest. Because it's a fast food. It's not like facebook. You put a thing up and then at some point in the next three weeks someone see your post and will get involved in the conversation. The comments onto an the reply reply reply reply. It's the closest thing to sms text messaging but with otherwise unreachable people which is really awesome so we get people on twitter. And that's lovely then. What we really want to do is move them from twitter to email platform. Because there's a place for being discovered and starring relationships like on onto it and then we want to move over to to all. We can do some deep nurturing nurturing so why some some of the strategies that we can be using an definitely want to know some of the mistakes that people make tried to shift people across as well but how do we even be game thinking about shifting people from twitter to our email list. Well greg question first and foremost you've got to get people to know like and trust you. Nobody's going to pay attention to you. Do anything that you say like. Hey come join my email is. Here's a lead magnet here something great. They're not gonna care if they don't get to know you firs- they like you they see you're likable and trust that you're not going to spam them right so you've got to work on relationship building. I and you know we all know the power of twitter chats as an amazing way to do that right just spinning some time connecting with people getting to know them and sharing your expertise and next thing you know. They're following you and they see hey. This person has a free pdf. I could sign up for and now you're getting them into your email. Listen starting that funnel. So it's really important to spend time nurturing community on twitter. You got you got. You can't just post you can't make it a one way street too. Many people too many brands too many of everyone is out there. Just me me me. Let me just post my stuff and not do anything else. You have to be on there and listen and jump into conversations and talk to people. It's incredibly important okay. Let's talk about jumping into conversations. The think will also go along the idea of and talk about twitter chats and that really means and how how we can take advantage of them later. But how do you like. Someone's having a conversation. You can see this a better crack going on between some people. How do you jump in now without being that so of dickhead. The party just like nobody likes just right then. Tell us what's going on. We don't want to be that drunken buffoon how do we. How do we not be that person yet. Still insert ourselves conversations. Well you can go in and ask a question just kind of slowly immerse yourself into it and not just like hey here i am coming out with me or add value to whatever. The conversation is if you go in and add value. That's really the best thing you can do. But before you do that. I do a quick audit of your twitter account. Make sure you're always good. Make sure you have a great photo a headshot something so that because what happens is once you start jumping in and doing this regularly. The first thing someone's going to do is go. Look at your profile. They're going to be who madeleine. Sklar what is she talking about. Why should i check her out. Why should i follow her. So you really need to have a great profile so it's really best to spin a little time on that. I just do a quick audit. Make sure everything looks good. Make sure you got your dot com if you gotta lead magnet get like a bit link and put that in your bio you know. Hey here's my my free whatever. Xyz and then the link. There's this misconception that you can't put multiple links in your twitter bio and you can you don't want to clutter it up with too many links but you definitely want here. Dot com in the space for the dot com but in your bio is a great strategy to put a small short-leg to yearly maintenance somewhere. If you you investigated using something linked tree or one of the of the plethora of programs for doing that or do you just like a couple of things that go directly to that results than you know really depends on what you're if you've got a lot of resources i think link tree is great for that and is definitely something that can be worth dealing I personally prefer doing billy link when i have some kind of special lead magnet and of even gone a step above that i have a custom. Bit link That you can do. Mine is since my last name is sklar is clearly so sklar dot l. y. And they can be slashed. Whatever i want to be which is super cool. I learned about it years ago. When jay baer was on my twitter smarter podcasts and he was talking about custom. Billy links which is something nobody talks about. Everybody knows about billy to get shorten links. Nobody talks about. Hey you can go. purchase You know something dot l. y. And and jay baer was like you should get your last name. You should be like scholarly. That would be so cool so i ended up doing it and it's been really unique so i use that quite a bit flip. Love licensed probably candidate think belong actually will url honest but we definitely. We've definitely thought about that. So i love that so so we can go in these conversations that we see happening. I suppose the first thing to do is we give some kind of volley that might be saying. Oh he not disagreeing with people and being offensive and stop but we want be in there going. I've done it this way. Add to the conversation. Don't take away from me really important. Just standard be nice stuff People check out your profile. Boston really great okay. A great way again people from a profile now that they're on your profile over lead magnet is bit links short links delete mandates great stuff. Now you mentioned this wonderful thing about until about a year and a half ago. I had never heard of a twitter chat or a tweet chat or a tweet. Our as many names for these things in case anybody's thinking what the hell are you talking about doing this. So of synopsis of what one of these things is absolutely so twitter. Chat is a great way twitter to bring like minded people together so for instance. I host the twitter smarter twitter so every thursday afternoon at one o'clock eastern whole bunch of us just converge on twitter for one hour it revolves around the hashtag. You just gotta make sure you pull up that hashtag and you'll see all the tweets around the hashtag and it just connects you really cool people in there so many twitter chats out there. There's so many different topics and interests so I have found it to be hands down the best way to connect with people on. Twitter is great for relationship building. I've met so many amazing people from this. I met you guys from there So yeah twitter chats is definitely the way to go. I recommend finding some that look interesting. Check them out and become a regular on some of these and try to commit a few hours each week. They're typically one hour away. Each week is typical twitter chat. Yeah most of all like a weekly event. They're like well. I know that every thursday. There's the one. I know that we have our own. Which is email our hashtag. Email every every thursday three. Pm eastern eight pm uk. Time for us. I'm on their throwing questions at people and they're really good. So if if somebody wants to participate in this one of these twitter hours or email in one of these twitter chats what's the best way they can leverage that to build their email list without being obnoxious person in the room saying hey buy from me. How can we participate in those things with and still be cool. Yes it'll be effective such a great question so back to your twitter profile. Be absolutely sure you've got some kind of lead magnet available. Make it really easy for people when they go to your profile to see it. Another strategy is to have a pen. Tweeden and penn tweets great feature on twitter. We can take any tweet. You have out there. And in the settings you can click to pin it stays at the top so someone comes your profile and they they're looking at your bio. They're looking at your lovely pitcher. The very first tweet is going to be. That pen tweeted to your most recent so make sure that tweet is something that kit. They could easily sign up for your manage and get them into your funnel. So when you're on a twitter chat and you're conversing with people and they go look at your profile. They'll easily see all that information. But what you wanna do on the twitter chat is you wanna get on their provide value. You don't want to get on there. They hey sign up for my free thing you wanna get on there and just answer the questions that are being discussed with your take on show that you have expertise and then engage with the guests engage with the host of the

So it's in a of ways very similar to the work at brady and take a lot of the learnings and experiences in carrying it forward and look at the whole workout station in there. Is that a peleton. You gotta pelivan peleton brutal used a mirror now mayor much come see me. I got the. Let's get peleton. Let's go man. You're you're peddling these things. Let's all right. We gotta we can look at each other track record and motivating each other awesome about your pilots on obsession christian concerns me a little bit. You're peleton pusher and it's concerning ballots today so. Let's talking about biking talking about bills. Chris just to start us off. Can you even break down at a very basic level would brady background. Check is sure so the radi background check system was put into effect about twenty seven years ago and a few days and change and when it was i adopted it was in response to actually the nineteen sixty eight gun control act which required background checks to be conducted so this is something that already was part of the federal law that there is no mechanism to ensure that there was real recordkeeping or even technology to make sure that could happen in the brady law. Put into effect this apparatus or sought to to ensure that every federally licensed firearms dealer or f. f. l. was required by law to conduct a background check and use technology that was adopted by the government to conduct that check and not just requires a look at a database that includes records criminal history at cetera about prohibited
What If Scenario Reality Checks
"You guys were living through a nether meaning like yet another historical event. You guys seeing that me more. Somebody's like i'm getting a little tired of living through historical events. Anyway it is snowmageddon or whatever you wanna call it in texas right now. I'm not sick. i'm all of a sudden sniffling as i do this. I'm just letting you guys know that it is my goal to like. I'm going to record the ad within the podcast and all that just. Because i'm a little nervous. I haven't heard from her to say she's not available but i'm a little bit nervous about You know there are so many people around where i live. Who do not have any power right now and so just in case. My podcast editor is not available We'll see how i do all this anyway. But yeah so we're in another historical event right now. We are living through the coldest they keep calling it like the coldest winter event in a generation. I don't know i don't know anyway. It's crazy let's people. Were that are without power. Here in texas Because we're just not prepared for this kind of stuff like this is just like it does not make financial sense for our cities to have and maintain at like snowplows. And there's a instagram. Or that i was that i've been following and she's minnesota and somebody who's like. How do y'all pipes not freeze like ours. Do because that's the big thing we're worried about. Its zoning like everything has to be insulated to a point where it won't freeze because they're used to that and i guess that's not i think here i don't know anyway. It's just a little bit crazy right now so everybody's home and then not even doing virtual school because of all the power outages and all that kind of stuff. Anyway my point is what a lovely opportunity. We've all had over the last twelve months to experience so many. What if scenarios which then gives us real reality checks about the things that we've kept for years thinking what if what if the worst happened. What if such and such happened. Because here's the thing for a lot of people like me. That's part of the reason why we have clutter issues is we can think of all. The what ifs. Sometimes i really have issues with other people in my life. Maybe people who. I live with my family or whatever who. I'm also this way in good ways to like. I think through all the ways that this could go and what could happen so this is what i need to do. Nail in order to be ready and prepared for that and in so many ways in life that is a great quality. I mean really like in so many different ways. It's like. I think through like you need to study this and you need to study this because this is coming and then the anyway. Whatever it's my project brain is great and a lot of ways. But here's where it gets out of control when i would keep stuff in my house. That was making life harder to live. That was making my house out of control because it was more stuff than i could personally handle. It was above my personal clutter threshold and because of that. I have to really be cautious and conscience conscious whatever of You know when my what if scenarios my desire to be prepared crosses the line okay and actually become something that hurts my family more than it helps my family. Okay so this is a great opportunity. We have lived through a lot of difficult scenarios and the last year things that might have been one of those well. This could happen things that were going through our head when we kept so. It's an opportunity to go through and go through your house. Now here's the thing to my goal. Is that these podcasts. Never be like super time sensitive so early. This cold snap. Where texas is colder than alaska is not going to last forever right now but really i mean it's not like it's it's you know it's going to be back above freezing on friday so great but looking back. I think it's really important for the us who have. What if for the future scenarios to go wait a minute and if we find ourselves spiraling in that direction of all the things that could happen in the future instead to go. Wait a minute. Let me be realistic about this thing that i'm thinking i should stay. Should save just in case. I'm desperate let me think about time when i was desperate. Did i use this item. Did i have it in my house. And did i use it or would i have actually used this in that situation. So she's kind of a good reality check for us

Conversation with Megan Alba
"Hello and welcome to episode fifty five today. I have joining me. Megan alba director account director with the silver telegram and content curators and we're gonna be talking about storytelling for brands. In how important it is in. This is kind of our first go at a video. Excuse us for the weirdness of we're just trying to get used to a new format. But yeah i megan how are you doing. I'm excited. yeah no. I'm excited as well. It's nice to have another person on talking about the same things that i'm talking about. So i'll megan has been working with this over telegram for like four years. I think there some something like that If you can just move closer so we can hear you a little bit better. That would begin sorry. I know you're like all relaxed in your green chair. They're new green chair. Having a conversation of green chair. conversations will take a little bite off of Jada pinkett smith with her correct table so so storytelling for brand is pretty important especially when we're talking about public relations in building our narratives to tell the media so we wanted to talk about like kind of some key tips on how to develop a really good story and story line and you're gonna do this many times when you're a startup or any kind of brand really so you're going do over and over and over again and typically we usually have three or four storylines going at the same time. Obviously when we're pitching to the medium but i would love to get your feedback on getting started and how to create a story line and you know how some people can start thinking about stories in what they should be including. So how how can we get started. When we're developing our storylines or how do we do it. I guess so. Before we jump into that what i will say is that you know. A lot of our clients come to us and say well. I'm not a storyteller in the truth. Is that everyone's a storyteller. And i like to say everyone has a story worth sharing. You're telling a story every day. What we're doing is helping you to learn how to manage that. Narrative had recognizing managed that narrative in your life. And so what we're teaching today can apply for Obviously across marketing and pr. But you know personally as well your own personal brand yeah so when we talk about storytelling really the first thing to start with the main idea and to and to build it out from there so sometimes the best thing you can do is to get back to basics. You know when you're in the middle of launching a product when you're in the middle of starting a new brand starting a new service. There's so many different things going on that. Oftentimes you feel pulled in many directions and sometimes you can lose sight of really the heart of the matter you can lose sight of the nugget that spurred all of this to begin with so what i recommend. A lot of times is go back to that. May ninety a what is it. What problem are you trying to solve. What issue where you're trying to address. What was the the main idea. The golden nugget. The lightbulb moment that popped into your head and you said i should do xyz to solve this problem. Go back to that main idea and that's going to be the heart of your storytelling point. I think a lot of people get like lost in like the verbs ray like this is the cutting edge or next generation or whatever and they they love to like hear that what they're doing is innovative or whatever you know like we have all those like pr terms that we get sucked into. And i agree with you completely like starting with the main idea making sure it like. I always tell people you know if you have a personal or brand mission statement to make sure it like lines up with that and it's like super direct and i think that's the best that is the best place to start so that you know you're always staying true to the voice of the company and like the goals of it rather than getting lost in saying that you are the next generation or innovation or all these fun. You know buzzwords that we like to throw out there so that's a great point great so like we start with the main idea we start fine tuning it What's next so. I think that it's important to remember throughout to keep it simple. That's something that's really important a lot of times like you mentioned people get into this and they're trying to throw around all these buzzwords flashy terms and at its heart. Your communications should be simple. Someone needs to be able to remember what you said As a matter of fact you said it several times in your book. Call your grandma and tell her. Tell her what you just wrote down. Give her your elevator pitch. And if grandma can't understand you need to go back to back to to the editing table again now so you want to do your research though once you have that main idea do your research and see what other people are saying about that same topic see what your competitors are saying. See what people are saying about similar products. If you're if you're the first or a new type of brand. What are people saying about similar products from there. You can find your unique value proposition from there. You can find those words that not everybody else's using and from there you can see what other people are saying that maybe it's confusing the conversation and you can cut through that clutter. You can fix it while you're building your on staff. Yep that's the else's communication problems and be the solution to it.

What is the zone? And what does it have to do with clutter, De cluttering and organizing well zone is an area It has a particular purpose. Now, how does that apply to what we're talking about today, Shelly? Well, one good example is your garage. Your garage is a zone created for you to be able to put your cars your vehicle in so that it can be away from Especially Oklahoma weather, But how many of us actually have our cars in the garage? I know Becky does and she's done a fantastic job of that, but that it's usually a struggle. And if you have your kitchen zone, you have your study zone, and it's important to not Mixed things from other areas. But keep that zone everything that goes in the, um The garage in the garage and everything that's you know, in the bathroom stays in the bathroom, so that's kind of making each room its own zone. Well, and I know you You tell me one time like you were going. You went into a house. Hopefully this was not my health, but it could have been and there were some tools under the kitchen table. Yes. Uh huh. And you're going well, that's not the tools own. I've seen bag of potatoes in the bathroom under the cabinet. I mean, I've seen it all. You know, um, so it's just people don't know where to put stuff. Things air overflowing, and they just stick things different places. And what that does is it causes you stress, And so we would like to come in and help you learn how to The stress de clutter. And have zones in your home. I want to throw a yellow penalty flag on having food in the bathroom. That's just weird like that. Like there's a lot of stuff like deal with, but not no, no, no, no Now, oh, homes, A lot of modern homes have open concept does not mean you have kitchen living room dining all combined. How do you zone that out? When it's all one large gathering area. If you have decided that you love an open concept of a home, which I think is great, what you've really chosen is to have a minimalistic approach to living and it means that you Have Boundaries. Have not beaten hat able to hide if you would your clutter s o. Everything that you have out that is visible has to have a purpose. Ah, use Would be something that really speaks to you like if it's you know, a picture or a drawing, or just even some type of kitchen tool that is out. On display. It needs to have a purpose s O again. If you've chosen an open concept you've chosen To pretty much live more minimalistic in your life on storages for storage. Yeah, that's right. The corner of the living room is not for stacking magazines. Or newspapers. And in my case, the Kitchen counter corner. Everyone has their nest on the kitchen counter corner where you open your mail, and you put stuff that you need to take care of pretty quickly right there. But then it just stays there until it becomes so old that when you clean it out, end up just throwing almost everything away. I think some of the the penalties if you will tag it onto what Mark said, is That the phrases of I'll get to it later. I just I just want to take a break. I'll get to that later. So when you get ready to receive your mouth, then you also need to be ready to discard mail that you're not Going to, um, want or need And that will save you in the end from lots of papers being stacked up that you in a sense go through again later. And then magazines once you've read it. Toss it, you know, right down or tear out the pages. That means something to you that you want to, uh, read later and then toss it so that you don't have 20 magazines. Shelly? What?

And again i struggle to get rid of it for thirty years and while it had some success it seems to inevitably return my stubborn clutter. Hotspot my weight. Yes the pound my body. I realized thinking of clutter has more than just stuff is pretty revolutionary and clutter. Revolution is just what you need. Approaching the removal of all kinds of clutter from a truly holistic place helps remove the shame related to it allows you to see the intricacies in this multi-facetted process. There are three main categories of clutter and each one is defined by how challenging. It is to clear number one simple. Clutter if you're able to get rid of it without much effort than it simple. Clutter because there aren't it in layers compounding. The situation clearing simple clutter is just a matter of making the time committing to the task and getting it done for example with my stubborn weight. Clutter the simple clutter would be the pounds can lose with little or minimal effort. They're not hanging on because of any bigger issue by eating better and moving more.

"cluttering" Discussed on News Talk 1130 WISN
"De cluttering is always the best countertops. I love the look of a clean countertop with maybe almost flowers, and there was nothing on it. You know if there's a microwave, and there's a coffee pot that all those things on there, I generally would like to see those, especially if you don't have a lot of countertop space. Have those completely cleared options because much of the buyer wants to see what it would look like with not their stuff in this. The owners, But what? You know what you're looking at. That is even if there's a bunch of stuff on top of the refrigerator, OK, is there not enough room and you know it. It sets those mind things. Okay, the countertop space. Oh, this looks cluttered in here. There's a hole all the stuff that there's not much work space here to do anything. So if you show more countertop space that's a better mindset from Yeah, I think some sometimes the best thing you can do is you go toe walmart or wherever you buy a bunch of those big plastic tubs. All those bins are getting you start filling all this stuff into these bins and base. I'm putting the gradual nobody. Nobody cares all that much. If you've got a whole bunch of stuff piled up in your basement or garage. That's kind of almost expected when somebody's getting ready to move But getting it out of the living space. That's that's the key, And that's with the De cluttering is that main living area, even kid's bedrooms and things not as big of a deal. What that mean living here. Those buyers are making their decision pretty much within a couple of minutes of being in that house. I mean, you're right, your visceral, let's be honest. Judge a house the minute I see it, and then I walked into it. I've my second judgment is not being made. I walk in the lower level, another judgment, everything the smell When you open the what? What kind of smell is hitting you? Was eurozone ater working all the ozone natives are incredible. Is that what he showed me at the pole barn? Yeah, it's like a little lunch box. Basically, that's about the size of those small I think an appliance again. Fire. I bought these old donators online for 160 bucks apiece. Something like that. And they're like commercial grade those donators. So if you've got a house, like with pet odors and you know food, odors and just different Smells. You know, Sometimes it's just an old house called by one of the old owners. Good bye and goes on later and let it run in the house for 246 hours. You know, whatever the whatever the instructions tell you, You can't be in the house while this is going on because you can't breathe that ozone in so these air again these air, not air purifiers like I own an I. Q. That's different. You what you have is an air filter. Yes, I have. Also, leaders are more of an air purifier where they're actually hunting down the Molecules that are making whatever the smells are real molecules. The smell markers. Yeah, and destroying them. And so I've been using in this poll barred that I have where it was grease and oil and 30 years of trucks and fumes and all that stuff, And it's unbelievable. How clearly really works. Yeah, that's good advice, Bob. You can cover up smells. You can bake cookies. You could do the glade Plug ins. Be careful. But if you do too much of that poor Paree stuff people going to say what's going on? It's almost like, didn't you say painting the basement walls? That's the worst thing you've known all too. That's interesting to me that that's wrong. If it's not like Sue exactly super fresh. That's what you want to be careful of. You know you're gonna sell in a few years. That's fine. You wanna, you know, paint them and have them sealed, but Right before you sell, Then that's going to say OK, Well, wait a second. Why did they do that? Yeah. Now your agents will go through and give advice, Bob. You will walk through house, your agents. They don't pull punches. They're going to tell you what they think would be best for you to sell this house. Yeah, that's really what the market analysis is all about. Is we go there and sure you give us the million dollar tour. And we make notes on bedrooms and bathrooms, and you know all that kind of stuff. But then we start pointing out things two years. You know, maybe we could spend a little bit of money and do this. Maybe we could pull this carpet out and show the beautiful hardwood floors that underneath. Maybe we paint the you know, hot pink bedroom and something just a little more control. Right? And generally, it's not big ticket things. Maybe even you know, changing some of hardware on the kitchen cabinets. You don't have to redo the whole kitchen. But sometimes maybe that's a little dated and light fixtures are famous people. Certainly he's fixed. They really are, especially if you've got one that's broken or outside the door bells hanging from a life for those who know the lights on the garage. One doesn't work one does, you know, fix and in this market to a lot of times what we're telling people, it's just leave everything the way it is. Don't worry about a thing. It's all fine. The buyers are gonna come in and they're gonna paint and do their thing anyways, because there's so many buyers out there that a lot of times that's our advice is, you know I would change some of these things, but in this market, let's just leave it. The only other thing that considers once in a while will notice big ticket items like if there's some really bad windows, or if we happen to see the rough, and he could just see the shingles are missing or whatever, or basement that's got a horizontal crack. And there may be some Boeing We might notice that stuff at the market analysis and have you bring a contractor out to take a look?.
"cluttering" Discussed on Focus On the Family Daily Broadcast
"The reality is you have dealt with clutter issues in your own home. These are things for the most part. You've learned on the job training right absolutely well from a small child because my my dad was a hoarder. So i've learned this from the ground. Okay so that's an interesting insight. Sometimes god works in pendulum swings. As i call it so you know if you're for example your parents on a serious not come from an alcoholic or home. Some children will tend to move the other direction right. You never you know that ruined my family. I'm never and that's a good thing but you kind of had the pendulum effect with clutter. Yes so when. I was a new mom i was. You know you guys are talking about such a busy stage of life. That's where i was at you. Could it was reflected in my house. I just accumulated all this stuff. And i now understand. There's a spiritual reason for that. But i've also understood that the more i got my house clear of clutter the more i understood about. You know what i believed about god. And what i believed about myself. And so yeah. I'm back at the other side and by the way my house is not picture. Perfect nobody from real simple as coming to take pictures of my house. That's probably sign of healthy too. I feel like we're the good balance. It looks like people live there. Let me put that. Well let me ask you that. Because what does it tell us when we do have a lot of stuff why do we have it and why do we cling to it. Well i think it says different things about different people. One of the things. I think it says is when we keep stuff just in case like the hang onto that sweater just in case i gained ten pounds or five. I understand this is. I tend to step on toes. The toes are usually buried in. Clutter all my jeans in the corner of the clause exactly if we're keeping things out of fear what. I often feel like that saying is one. I don't trust god to provide for my future. So i need to hang onto everything i've ever owned for my entire life so for some people's fear some people it's guilt if they've spent any money on anything in their entire lives. They need to keep it until jesus comes back. Otherwise they consider they hear from their depression era grandparents. You know use it up where it out make do without. And so they're onto things that i actually love that saying but it's only for things that we actually use rano at one point. I looked in my drawer. And i had six editors who in the world except for you know a bakery needs six eg bidders but i kept holding onto them because i just thought well i wear one out i could use another one now wearing eg peter says not my life so we've got the fear we've got the guilt and shame if a and the guilt also is if somebody gave it to you so there's guilt and shame gave something to me and so i need to keep it till both of us. Are you mentioned the ten principles of clutter free home. So let's cover those okay. Just hit him. Okay so i am. The first one is gonna challenge you. Jim make clutter management a daily priority. So you say you know it takes exactly a day to clean out your garage. That i did catch that. What a terrible way to spend saturday. Sorry offals right. I agree. That's why today that's right. You're going to go do it today. But here's what i would say instead. Wouldn't it be better to do a bunch of fifteen minute spurts where you just go in there. You're saying no okay. I like progress. I yes so. That's why i think progress has to be done in small step so like i don't want you to clean your garage for fifteen minutes. I want you to clean your workbench for fifteen minutes. You can make progress on your workbench but cleaning my garage on a saturday. The most depressing. I've ever heard in the english league. Okay good enough okay designate. A place for everything. So i think oftentimes we don't have things you were just talking about bills coming in stuff like that. It's because maybe the place is a little too out of place and so having acute box where everything goes in something like that. My wife's desk would be a better place than as long as she agrees with you. 'cause i wanna to be marriage. Enhancing number three. Don't put it aside. put it away. I tell myself this all the time because what this is doing is taking care of my future. Self if i put it aside that means i have to clean it up but if i put it away the next time. I'm looking for scissors. True or the next time. Somebody calls me and says where scissors. I know where they are number four. Stop being reactive and start being proactive. And what i mean by. That is don't clean because mother-in-law's coming where you should boost should but don't let that be the only reason because what that is stashing dash. Okay don't argue over stuff negotiates space. This is so important for people who are in relationships. Because if you haven't played guitar twelve years you're wounding. Who played guitar to impress that girl. Like he's not gonna get rid of that guitar. But if you say okay you get one guerrilla rack in the garage. I get one guerrilla rack in the garage. That is a way to a peaceful solution about stuff instead of arguing over the actual things only problem. Is you still have to make some choices you. But it's the person's choice you're not saying with the guitar saying hey can guitar exactly well. He's tar and fit on a guerilla old guitar cat. Every guy has an old guitar. I learned one song that guitar right. So let's talk about that guitar. The next thing is don't use storage a way to delay decisions. Okay i yeah. I know right. That's only come to me in the last year. But what i realized is the stuff i had so neatly organized in my storage space in the garage was just delayed decisions. The ones that. I didn't feel i was emotionally able to make young. So once you diagnose the clutter you can dispense with the clutter figure out. What's at the core. Is it fear guilt or shame. What is making you hold onto that or maybe you just have too much stuff going on about the person that says in. This is a fair. I don't want to pay for it again. I don't wanna have to use it in two. Okay aig beater. Let's let me challenge you about okay if you go. You're going to use it in a year if it's a snow blower and you're going to use it in the year to it but if it's a sweater that i liked one time and maybe i don't like it so much anymore but could like it under the right circumstances. Can i trust god enough to get that into the right person's hands okay for enough. I'm not trying to throw the god card. I'm really not. But i really do believe sometimes stuff comes to us and just for a moment and that we're supposed to pass it onto. Yeah things are not relationships

"Allow. Everybody it's read tracy. Welcome back to the you can. Heal your life podcast. Today our guest is going to be kerry. Richardson and carey wrote a book for. Hey house called. What is your clutter trying to tell you and then her newest book is from cluttered clarity and so obviously see the topic for today. It's going to be all about clutter. And i think in today's times with all the spending more time at home and more time with ourselves and our thoughts were noticing clutter in our houses and cluttering our brain. So i think kerry might be able to help how you doing. Carrie ann doing great. Thanks so much for having me on and just so in case you're wondering <hes>. Carey do you still live in your tiny little house. Your two hundred forty square foot house share of kerry went from two thousand square feet to two hundred forty square feet so when it comes to physical clutter. I don't think she has a whole lot in there. I check out. She's a real expert and she doesn't live alone in the square pd. I live here with my wife and our two cats. So it's four of us in this little place right exactly so to get started. What are what are the things that you've learned. that causes. clutter both physical clutter and mental. Clutter yeah god. It's such a good question because it's it's such a bigger topic than people realize in the greatest sense so i have found through my work with people that there are really three. Common core causes of any kind of clutter. Whether that's piles of paperwork. You know exploding closets draining relationships and the three core causes our limiting beliefs unrealistic expectations and a lack of boundaries. So when i work with my clients and students and we chiseled down beneath the surface of what's going on in their life. I always come to one of those three right and so when you come to those three what are how do we help with that. So how do we help with unrealistic expectations limiting beliefs or lack of boundaries. Can you give us some tips or ideas. Absolutely so so. Unrealistic expectations is probably the most accessible one. That people can work on right away. This this is you know if you say as soon as i have a free weekend. I'm gonna clean out my garage. That doesn't happen. You know it takes a very special kind of person to actually follow through on that promise to themselves because the job is just too big and the length of time. You're expecting yourself to work on. It is way too long so you can handle unrealistic expectations right away by saying you know what this is a big job. The size of this job overwhelms me actually prevents me from getting started so i always encourage people to work. In these little rounds. I call them palm rounds. That's p. o. M. but that's really just a short term for the pomodoro technique. This is a time management. Tool that i didn't invent i just love it. It's as simple as this. So you choose task you're going to work on. You eliminate all distractions so no email no cell phone. That people know you're not available and you set a timer for twenty five minutes and you work on that task just until that timer runs out and then you take a five minute break. That does a couple things. Not only doesn't make more doable. Because it's such a finite amount of time but it helps get your resistance on board that part of you. Who is really good at talking. You out of doing the things you say you wanna do when if you say. Let's clean out the garage resistance. Go oh no way. That's way too big but if you say well let's just try for twenty five minutes and see how we feel. It can see that kind of light at the end of the tunnel and it'll be much more willing to get started

"It all. Okay, so it's really about being very clear with what the purpose like that everything in your attic has a purpose. So for example, you change your wardrobe you do a seasonal water seep seasonal Wardrobe when you change your wardrobe as that's something that I would say, okay, perfect so off your clothes could be upstairs when it's your summer clothes and you switch them around so it's not something that's going to be going up there and never moved and never switched or never cleared out again. That is something like that. It is blocking energy and it is overwhelming you I'm bearing down on you and your body. Okay. So this is really where people you're asking where to start I would say first of all attic and the basement is the same. It's one of these days. Is that that's good gets neglected and things just get shoved out there on my decisions try and clear it out. You will be so surprised how much energy you have have after clearing your object. I thought this own my own experience with Ken when I moved in with Ken and the house was built he built it and everything. He had just belonging to him from his mother's house from his house from his life. All kind of just went off the attic and we found things that were like twenty years old payslips from like twenty years. Notebooks work notebooks from like fifteen years ago. Like what why would you even need this and I like the the interesting thing was the shift in his energy once we moved and got rid of all of that. It was just like he hopped out of bed just been like let's go but it was absolutely fascinating. So I would love first of all also for you to commit so please share with me if you're going to commit to doing I'm tackling something in terms of where it is where where you would start and Thursday. Something that you can think of in the Attic that is hasn't been used in like more than six to eight months except for Christmas decorations. That could actually be gone. Let go of cuz there's like this whole thing of like, I'm keeping it just in case like keeping it just in case is great. But the other part of that is that it's it's if it's your attic is totally corrupt its impact it's impacting your help and well-being now down to where we start. Okay, and you're like, oh my God, I started a really really hard one. Okay, so I have another question that has been sent to me and it's like we'd love to know how to keep a positively whatever social media life. Looks like they have it under control. This is a great one and it's not quite function very related but decluttering will definitely help you release your energy and yes, if she knows her thing is asking for a help to clear the attic or clear the space as like being empty is amazing and that's a big prize but tackling the bedroom. So again when it comes to birth Bedroom or you know for me I would say, you know, if you are like the biggest David book reader and you love books, like don't try and declutter your books first, like go declutter your shoes off not in if you're not into issues for you know, so find the thing that's not going to be that difficult, you know for me it's often like I'll go and do like my drawers in my vanity or my makeup bag or the, you know, kind of clear the bathroom at first then the plastic containers cupboard and then I may get to the bedroom and go. Okay. I'm ready to do the bat the bedroom now, here's some clothes off and but if you have like a whole thing of attachment to close like definitely give yourself a chance to recognize it to just go to the easy things first. Now, the other thing is with that whole aspect of decluttering is just be gentle with yourself. You don't have to do it all today. And I know like for me Marie kondo talks about like get everything to a halt declutter day but a little bit like yeah if you want dead But like it is a muscle and they'll be there and it's a continuous Journey. Like you'll always find things that you can be let go of and I am always so surprised how I ended up keeping something that I'm like, how do I am keeping that? Like, I haven't used that since you know, so just being really mindful of your things and easy things to declutter is things that are broken things that are not working things that have gone out of date like these are the things that you can really do that would be super simple and easy. So yeah, it can be really easy to to kind of to tackle the places that are not as emotional and then do the other things. So yeah and it can be really hard like I feel like right now energetically people have seen, you know with the the the crazy hurricane here and it was just really awkward strange time. So being gentle with yourself. Someone did ask me if I was about like how you keep positive and you know, one of the things is just looking after yourself, you know, really looking after yourself off. And one way you can and this is why I think that this is a perfect, topic to talk about with the actual with the funk shway as well. Is that looking after ourselves is super important job tending to your own energy and that means like, you know clearing out letting go but I also recommend, you know Fung shui is all about connecting to the elements of nature thought spending time in nature is just the most powerful thing you can do and when we work with people functioning their homes, and we were actually bringing the elements the five elements of nature into balance and harmonize the space. So it'll be quite balancing and harmonising now just to let you know, I have questions already submitted to me for a long time. So I will pop the link below for you to post your questions if you would like to share and submit questions to me, but I'm going to be doing them in sequence of of the ones that have been sent to me. So I'm one of the things it's so interesting because I've had the next question. I came in was like how to stay motivated and and you know having things in your home that are not aligned where you want to go or are broken or sense of like extra like closer off and for me when we talk about clutter. I don't talk. I'm not talking about, you know, today's dishes on the sink or the kids clothes in the wash basket or their toys thrown around the floor. That's not what I'm actually talking about. What I consider clutter is I'm it seems like it's actually kind of I don't know what it's not come to the wrong word for it. But what I would consider is blocking a lot and slowing down motivation and energy levels would be areas of your home that I've been left untouched and not looked at like a book case that has not moved. I had one client who had a book case of the box there for thirty-five years the same books on the same. Like when we think that's like stagnancy, it creates staleness and stiffness and that will then mirror back into your life or what's going on. So just giving you age A chance to move that through so I will post the link for people to post their questions and to submit questions in as well. So, let me see the next question. How can I bring up the vibrations of my home so that we all work through the same uplifted feelings. So this is like I'm actually so interesting how the questions kind of are all connected. But honestly if you thought I talked about it when I saw it with Ken and one of the biggest shifts that I saw was once he started to declutter. So anyone who was feeling a bit stuck a bit sluggish a bit like tricky things that are feeling that good just walk around your house and see what can I let go of because as you let go of something physical it's also kind of letting go of something emotional as well. Like you're letting go and it's like that's that assholeness. It's it's an internal external thing like our external environment mirrors our internal environment if we just do something on my external and we do a bit of a sweep clean and clearing of things will make space for new things wage. Mean so giving yourself an opportunity to check in with that. I think that can be absolutely vital and really powerful.

I'm bringing my root chakra and I am excited to be here and it's been a while since I was shared and I wanted to just Really kind of re-engage. It was so beautiful.

This is kind of short and sweet little session each week and it'll just give you some action tips steps that you can take to do some funk shway wage. Okay, let me see God there is a lot of questions and to me so we will be a while before we get through them all but it's all good. Now. Well, this is so good the very first question and was what not. So this is not a kind of I'm not quite like oh, well one of my answer first, I'm just going to go to the very beginning. Where should I start with decluttering? My house is feeling heavy with clutter. I feel overwhelmed and I don't know where to start so recently. Hi. Good morning everybody. Thank you for being here. So recently in my power House program. I had a girlfriend comment and actually post a similar question, but her question was about the attic and there are some key areas in your home that I would certainly recommend looking at when it comes to decluttering and in a level of priority. So the very first one I would say to you is the attic first of all, it's probably a place that you haven't been to in a while off. Second of all a lot of the things that get a put in the Attic are and this is a from a quote that I've heard in the past like clutter is unmade decisions. So you haven't decided whether you really want to keep it. You're not really sure what when you're going to use it again. So it just gets put to the side whether it's either the garage the basement or the attic and those three areas for me are really like a little spaces that I think could be tackled and without having to get too emotional about things and closure is a very emotive topic and it's one that people can find quite difficult to to go to work on so when it comes to clutter for me, my suggestion would be to number one focus on a place where the things that you're working with are not going to have like an emotional tie to them first of all and that you're talking about so because decluttering is like exercising a muscle it is like building a muscle and when you build that muscle you get better on it and Ed. Gives you loads of energy. So I'm going to talk about why I would recommend the attic or the basement to be the places that you would tackle first and the attic is because if you're feeling overwhelmed you and your attic is full of things. It is literally bearing down on your head. It is creating this sense of like like heaviness and this burden on your shoulders is a burden busyness in your brain like it's literally so if you've heard me talk about this before your house is like a person it is eyes the windows. It has a mouth the front door and ears off the walls is taking it all in but like the attic is kind of like the brain, you know, we think about it's like the top of the house and if it's like full of junk and stuff. It is literally going to be affecting everything off of your body and your health and your well-being and your vibrancy. So that would be the place that I would recommend starting out if you are going to start to declutter the attic because the thing is then when it comes to them Sick also the attic what should go into the Attic So what I would recommend it goes into the attic is Christmas decorations. Yes, you can have your Christmas decorations because they're seasonal and we're going to use them once a year and they could be up there the other thing that I recommend in your attic and I'm actually just taking from my own apt attics. I'm thinking of my own Advocate Ireland and is our camping gear is ther so when we go to festivals or we want to go camping all of it is set up there. It's in there now, we don't have like an outdoor shed. So that's why it's up there. We had an outdoor shed. I would say the camping gear would go out there. But right now that's what goes there. So it's something seasonal we use once or twice a year. There is no emotional quality tourists. It is literally got its little job it's there and it'll come out when we need it now, that's because that's when we Act of it now if you haven't count and you have camping your asset, if you have encountered ten years get rid of the camping gear if you don't need it, if you haven't used it in a certain length of time, then it's time to let it go now home. Things in the Attic that some people can have and can be lots of paperwork and old bookkeeping and things like that. So we have our annual accounts up there and but we just took seven years. So we are meant to keep 7 years of them. We keep the seven years there. Now. The reason we don't have them in our office is because it's not accessible. We're not there during the.
"cluttering" Discussed on WMAL 630AM
"The chair of any ours really Property Evaluation committee. Jamie, Welcome to realestate today. Good morning, Steven. Thank you for having me. We are so glad you're here. So, Jamie, First of all, how's the appraisal business in Rhode Island Appraisal business. Is awesome. It has been robust for many months now. And I must say, I think all of my fellow realtors that are also failed. People and brokers are just busy is all of us Appraisers all You know, I understand that you're talking to us on your cell phone right now, because you told me earlier that just this morning, you had three separate appraisals to do. That's right. And that's become kind of typical of everyday I hate to say there's no time you really type of cradles anymore because thank you busy having to say things every day. Well, that is good to hear, because as we all know, Realestate is stronger than ever right now, and that's happening in Rhode Island as well. I know what with New England has been very, very busy, and I'm sure the rest of the country is just busy. So Jamie, if you were selling your own personal home And you knew that in about three weeks to a month, the appraiser was going to come to your property and check it out. What would you do to get the highest Possible appraised value. I always paint hardwood floors refinished those air. Two easy steps that go a long way cluttering is huge. I know the Realtors are very big on making sure that properties that they don't necessarily stage they at least have the homeowners check out as much as they can so that the new Biocon visualize their furnishings in it. And it just looks that much larger when I'm there. Typically, by that point, the seller has already kind of said, huh? Thank goodness we're all done with all these showings. I can let my hair down a bit. I could let the house a little more quartered. I don't worry about it being shown every day. I say to that side of people, you'll tryto spruce it up a bit of the appraiser, especially because right now everyone is trying to get the most out of their house. Those houses there selling for more than they should be in a lot of cases. So anything you can do to put your best foot forward just helps. If it doesn't look really clean, not the cleanliness is necessarily an issue in appraisal, but it may just sway an appraiser a little bit thinking well. I'm not going to give it top notch Mark. It's okay. I'll make sure that you put your best foot forward with the inside being picked up. You don't have to go crazy, but keep it looking night. Nice me. I hear your wife. Make sure that if you've got your shrubs and your landscape going little overgrown, because again, the house hasn't been showing for a few weeks have been worried about it. Make sure that that fruit stuff Make sure the lawn's been cut recently. Just so again. Better curb appeal. Always help I see. And there are many conversations that we've had over the years, Jamie You've always said that a house can have a certain range to its appraised price. And so if you do everything you just described your house tend to hit the higher end of that range. Good point. Yes, You listened well, even over the years because I have said that and that's a good question to ask me. So what I say is, yes, There's always going to be a small range. Some rangers they're larger depending on you know what kind of goes with the price point of the house? Smaller Price point. Let's arrange, typically, but skills will that appraiser bring it to the higher end of the range? Because, yes, you kind of checked all the boxes that looked good to me. It shows well as opposed to Canadian was kind of in the middle of that range because it looks okay. So yes, by all means doing everything that you can t just make it look as clean and neat as possible. Would certainly be an asset. You know, Jamie, that reminds me of something, a realtor said on the show many years ago, which was The person who puts in the work reaps the rewards very through and you know some of the nicest home that I had praise are the smallest one that are, you know the lesser price one, but they just show so well and they sign That you want to give that those homes the benefit of the doubt, you know, and bring them in as much as the range will allow. Or as much as you know, Supporting values will allow because they've been such a nice job on keeping that home. Christine great advice from a professional home appraiser and Jamie, can you join us again in the next hour? Of realestate today, and we'll talk about the entire appraisal process. That would be fine. Thank you..

"I'm so glad that you're here with me today. . Oh I sew happy to be here Dana Oh my goodness I'm so excited I love is this your office that I'm seeing the video this is my office behind me and I'm so glad you're only seeing this because you can almost not walk in the rest of the room today well, , I think what are people calling zoom scaping now that it's like I mean like that is a huge in my private facebook group. . That is a huge topic of conversation is okay. . My kid has to zoom I have to zoom I've got to have five different zoom spaces in my home. . You know where I know what the background is and let me just introduce you real quick I'm sure I probably went back and said it in the intro but whatever. . You are my Willens Smith known as the NESTER and you have a book coming out called welcome home correct and do. . What's what's your little elevator pitch for your buck for this book I'm still not good at that but I'll tell you the subtitle. . It's a cozy minimalist guide to decorating and hosting all year round. . Right. . And it's divided up into seasons and I love that and we're GonNa talk about that because seasonal decorating can be. . Exciting, , but also a trap especially for my people <hes>. . So we're talking about that but so you wrote decorating book and I've been in your house and it's beautiful and you're like the decorating guru of the Internet so. . Like do you get stressed out of resume scaping? ? No not at all I'll tell you why. . Because my tagline, my , overall tagline of everything is it doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful and that covers a multitude of sins. . Actually that means I have lowered the expectation so much thatch there better be some imperfection there or else I'm not giving the people what they want, , and so I'm so grateful that I started off with that. . I mean first of all I believe it but secondly, , it just changes everyone's expectation. . Okay. . So let's talk about that because. . So I was talking about my people and where we're coming from. . So, , the idea of not needing to be perfect is very appealing, , but it's also very scary because. . Most of us are not talking about letting someone see a basket of laundry on the couch were talking about like piles of laundry covering every surface. . You know not all of us because we're all at different points in this journey. . Thankfully, I'm , not there anymore but I do have laundry on my recliner right now even though I'm so against that because my daughter was doing her laundry was like, , where am I gonNa do with this and I said just put it on the recliner because I don't have time right now I mean so it happens but I know there was a time in my life where it was not just a matter of. . Not Letting someone. . In because it wasn't perfect but not letting someone in because it was a real source of shame. . So how do you like what's your advice in that situation? ? I think you I love how you just go straight to the point of it and I think we all have we all have different levels of that you know and just because maybe visually someone else's Homa seem more cluttered or untouched or Messi that person could experience the same amount of. . Shame as someone who's house maybe to US looks pristine. . So you almost you can't even measure the shame that way because it's not a shame contest, , it's I think it's a combination of number one how we feel about our own home and then how we perceive others to feel about it, , and so if we can <hes> get to a point where we feel good about both of those things, , I think that's the goal. . So I know for my friends. . If they have laundry everywhere I love my friends. . So I I don't care like I want to know them and if that's them but I'm okay with that because I loved them and I feel confident that my friends feel the same way about me totally truly do in it. . Took me I'll tell you one time. . I'll just go ahead and take over I'm GonNa tell you story. . So how many years ago when Chad I married we were renting this crazy. . It was like one of the oldest houses in Macon Georgia. . So really really old house like eighteen hundreds built in the bathrooms like every room was crazy. . Especially, , you know how kitchens and bathrooms are but the house was kind of an embarrassment to me and <hes>. . We lived in a town where there was not only an attorney school, , but there was a doctor school. . So somehow all our friends were coming of age doctors and attorneys and my. . Husband was a schoolteacher and I'm staying home having babies. . So I was the friend of mine whose husband was studying to be doctor and she had a beautiful new home and she was dropping me off from like a day together and she asked if she could use my bathroom and I told her no and I didn't tell her no because I mean first of all I'm I'm sure it wasn't tidied up but that was not my source of shame for me. . My source of shame was like my house wasn't good enough. . And I will tell you it is one of my biggest regrets because really what I was telling my friend is I do not trust you. .

"We are tackling a question from listener. . Rachel. Weiss . space-junk this growing population of manmade objects cluttering up Earth orbit so Does that happen? ? Okay I. . Let's consider what satellites are made out of metal plastic glass powered by batteries or solar panels, , and when they're placed in specific orbital highways, , they stay there moving. So . quickly that they don't fall towards the earth kind of like, , you know if you had to put a boat in a body of water, , you want to avoid fighting the current kind of thing that's more. . But jaw who we met earlier, , he says that from sputnik onwards, , our satellites have been creating debris shedding spent rocket bodies pieces becoming glued satellites have been known to explode when unspent fuel is on board, , and of course, , they can cross flightpaths and collide with one another and whenever satellite shed pieces they. . Tend to not should one but many many pieces, , hundreds of thousands of pieces depending on the type of collision. . These collisions rarely destroy the satellites, but , they can alter their operation and send pieces jettisoning off into space affected not only by gravity, , but other physical forces. . So we're pressure thermal radiation charged particle, , environment <hes> interactions with you know magnetic fields, , and all of this makes it very difficult to predict what space junk will do next the little that falls back to Earth, , which is one object that day on average burns up or falls into the ocean. . So space junk is probably not going to land on your head. . Have you calculated that probability because you're GONNA ask me this question I haven't. . But there's a scientist <hes> mark. . Matinee, , at NASA orbital debris program who has it's one in several trillion honestly I still like it but okay Mattie the people you should worry about more astronauts right? ? The International Space Station actually has a tracker to monitor for collision risk and they will maneuver out of the way when the risk is too great. . Wow. . But I feel like if there was a major collision, , I would hurt about it, , right? ? Yeah. . There hasn't been a major collision you know the US military NASA and other agencies and groups around the world they tracked debris and Warren of potential collisions but there's been a few scares in recent decades. . So in two thousand, , fifteen, , for example, , the crew. . On. . The International Space Station had to hide in their Sawyer's capsules. Basically, . , the stations lifeboat when debris from an old Russian weather satellite came dangerously close. . I don't like that no spacecraft and satellites will routinely maneuver out of harm's way but only if they have ample warning so the whole spacefaring community was pretty rattled when in two, , thousand, , seven, , the Chinese military destroyed one of their own weather satellites they were testing out anti-satellite. . Technology. . Brian Weeden, , remembers tracking this big explosion for the US air. . Force. . I personally was sort of shocked. . It was of like wow Brian was part of a squadron that counted the resulting debris and in the end ended up cataloging more than three thousand objects. . So that one. . Got turned into three thousand things and that's just the things we can track wasn't space junk a big part of the movie gravity you are remembering cracks lake. . From the missile strike has caused a chain reaction hitting other satellites in creating desgris two thousand eighteen Hollywood movie begins with a chatty George Clooney and Sandra bullock servicing the Hubble space telescope gays, and , contentedly back at Earth. . When this huge cloud of debris from missile strike grips through communications blackout it's a bad situation happen North America's laws individual. . Dramatic portrayal definitely raise the profile of space junk. . Even if the portrayal wasn't very accurate I, , think navy on the whole it has been a good thing for for the issue. . Even, , if I might grumble a little bit scientists love to grumble. . That's Brian Weeden again he's now the director of program planning for the Secure World Foundation thinks a lot about sustainability in space, , and he says that opening scene gravity doesn't capture the true problem over the breath catches him was portrayed as sort of a nuclear chain reaction. . Right there's one event that sets off this series of things that will happen very fast. . The reality is sort of the opposite where it's it's like climate change. . The problem with space junk is it's a long relatively slow accumulation over decades with a big negative impact down the road. . Got It. . Yeah. . So Brian says. . The risk of space junk involves convincing people, , launching satellites, , governments, and , companies to change their behavior. . Now mindful of the future and maybe have a little inconvenience or a little more cost now to forestall bad things in the future, , and that's a really difficult argument to make because we humans just aren't engineered to kind of think like that preach especially when nothing truly catastrophic has happened yet but space junk is already proving to be problematic in the short term, , it's translating into real world costs a satellite. . Field alerts about potential collisions. . Do Do I change my satellites orbit because that costs fuel and that will shorten the lifetime your satellite, , which isn't good for the commercials base economy, , which is Kinda booming right now. . Yeah. . We did that episode all about how SPACEX IS GONNA put a bunch of satellites up there. . Right you know in the long term space junk has the potential to not only collide with manned spacecraft like the International Space Station, , but threatens satellites at all levels of orbit like those used for imaging and whether data collection, , which then could mean our climate models are less accurate or we don't have a good way to track the mirrors and that could have negative

"One a text club they said I felt melancholy after de cluttering I couldn't part with so many things fixtures of my life I cleaned scrubbed white swept but in these times of uncertainty the familiar the old felt like security yeah I think quarantine has a very weird relationship with minimalism because suddenly after you've cleaned out our houses and there may be living and slightly emptier spaces we do depend on them for more like this this different family purposes so in in moments of difficulty like minimalism can can be a shock or can can feel like maybe a betrayal of yourself that you got rid of all these things that mean something to row we've heard several definitions of what minimalism is so far tell us what is minimalism to you yeah my favorite definition there's kind of two one comes from my best friend Aaron Johnson he says you have to travel light pack light to travel far and my own personally comes from to me a Sasaki is book goodbye things which is the way that I summarized it which is that it's the practice of finding what's most meaningful to you and making that your life and to me as a person of color in from marginalized community that's a radical notion and I want to speak to this part the big criticism about minute minimalism especially and persecuted communities and communities that are fleeing Kyle refers to aerial burns dean's work in the Atlantic which is so great which is Marie Kondo and the privilege as clutter is that her parents were refugees from Cuba and so some family members didn't make it and so her family members began to really connect and holding grasp and so I think this is so important to us because what we're understanding about Ariel's and ours many listeners out there if that were really describing here is much more than attachment we're describing trauma the show hoarders in my opinion is not some escapade or you feel superior because you never let your dining room get that bad it's about what happens when something jarring happens in our lives and we have the inability to let our despair out to the very human question I ask myself can consider about family members with hoarding tendencies in my own life and others is what is terrorized SO in for terrorize communities differ honest the time line it's been so long in the instance incidences are too much to count and those of us who are confined in quarantine right now rattling with these environments around us that are either too much or either too sparse it's really coming home for us and so for me as a woman of color I don't keep what's meaning for my life because I'm an acting a tedious piece a performance artist healthy taken sharply in accurately described in her article about the lifestyle but I keep my beautiful humble and limited things because it's the kind of thing I can do for myself because I have a shopping addiction because I have a tendency to hoard from childhood because hard things Austin overtake me and we are in a pandemic so pairing down what matters to me is how I take care of myself in a world that expects me to run myself down into B. run down especially because of my economic situation especially because of how stressed I am and as a child from a line of forced immigrants I will choose it will not be chosen for me anymore and we're gonna talk a lot more about that bro thanks for sharing that perspective I'm wondering you know what your responses to people who feel like the KonMari decluttering prescription is just too simple two simple can you see anything remember that you know or even you just the you know the facade the philosophy that you know if you clean your house you too can be happy can you maybe comment on that what's your response to yeah well sourced and it's a simplified I think it's a simplified understanding of the method Marie Kondo says that trading is just a tool not the not the final destination so it's really the process as a result and so I mean I'm loving what Kyle same living with rose same because it's it's ultimately that's what Kamari is all about as well I think the confusion comes from how she personally represents herself as a as an individual and as a brand and what's expected of of the rest of us but the simplicity is what makes it easy to start so I was actually on the today show twelve years ago for being messy I've been someone who loves you know shops a lot as well and and have paid off debts and and okay killed some of those things as well according to messy person yeah I am I am so so it's it's a very it's an overwhelming thing to address anything any journey of life transformation is going to require a lot of effort and so when you can have a simple question does this spark joy it gives people a starting place which is what's needed at that point when you're recovering from grief you're recovering from trauma and it's it's a gateway it's an easy access point to doing some of that difficult emotional work I'm so thrilled that that road brought up trauma right I just finished reading the the body keeps the score and what's talked about in that book really to me underlies why the KonMari process is so powerful as a as a healing tool now we're talking about America's obsession with decluttering but there are some who love a bit of a mess my name is Eric I'm from Tucson Arizona when my daughter was in junior high she called a TV station to come clean the house but they refused because a social thing has now decided to turn the house into an obstacle course for a TV show but best of all it's my security system because if the safe confines that you're looking for they can do better than I can so keep that message and keep it safe thanks for leaving us that message Eric now we'll have more from our
