What are you worth? I have discovered lately that I am worth having a clean space to call my own. It is worth the hours I will put in to sort through every single thing in my office to clean it out, organize it and make it mine again. I am worth having a clutter-free space to work in. As I sort through everything I am finding many things that cause me to question why I thought they were worth hanging on to at all. If you keep piles of paper long enough, eventually an awful lot of it will become trash and thus easier to part with.
The things that are worth keeping are sometimes hard to decide how they should be kept for easy retrieval later and where they will be kept. I have had to get brutal and peel the layers away one at a time to get down to what I really think is worth keeping. Do I love it? Does it bring me joy? Do I need it? Will I be able to find it when I do? Could I let Google find it for me the next time I need it? Could I maybe scan it or take a photo of it and store it on a computer or hard drive for future reference? How do I know which way is the best way and is it worth all this effort or would I be better off pitching it and moving on to the next piece of paper?
