Well I got to chapter 5 and realized..my whole apt. is going to have to be my inbox. I grew up in a house of Pack "rats".... Both my mother and father would keep things "Just in case we need them". Now im not talking junk but probablly useful things, but 'probablly' will never be used again by US, things.
Of course I inherited this trait, perhaps its genetic. Anyhow to the point.
I moved out from my house at 17 and started my career. My housing situation until about age 23 was a flux state, moving sometimes 2-3 times a year. Everytime I moved I created a whole new set of boxes with STUFF. Now, at age 26, I have lots and lots of stuff and i've begun the trash and sort migration of it all.
I think that I should finish the book ASAP but Ive gotten so motivated to clear out the Progress Anchors (aka Stuff) that ive jumped into a between chapter stage- Funneling everything to in/Sorting out my filing/Throwing it all away.
I've been taking action on things, but then getting stuck at the filing or sorting stage. I end up dwelling on the desire to not put things in a BAD, or my old filing system and end up retiring from the project. This ends up becoming a day or week avoidence of my historical problem.
Im not sure of the 'Right' catagories to give things. For example, I have reciepts for business, office supplies,clothes, food-business, food-groceries, ect ect. I'm tempted (for example) to lable them "Purchase Reciepts-Food-Personal" But that doesnt seem right?
Does anyone have any EZ tips to make my Business and Personal filing all make sense? Any rules for Catagories that will make it all MORE logical?
Is this all described later then chapter 5??
Thanks for the GREAT start David A. and thanks for your help anyone else!!
Time to make sure I finish the book!
