operation: minimalist office complete



what i did:

  • removed every book that i have not/will not use
  • removed wall hangings (notes/record albums/college degrees)
  • removed all paper clutter from desktop (stored in my top drawer)
  • removed all office equipment from desktop (stapler/tape)
  • removed noncurrent clutter from bulletin board
  • removed misc clutter from bookshelves (souvenirs/sports memorabilia)
  • painted


  • able to focus / less distraction (my mind matches my activity)
  • a vision for the future (no longer tied to the past)
  • more energy (clutter is so mentally draining)
  • endless possibilities…

    I don’t have an office, office equipment or office supplies, because I use a handheld computer. I’ve never print papers, because I send emails. Memory is stored in the cloud. I can work anywhere at any time.

    I prefer to sit in the park, at the beach or in the backyard.
