Do You Need to KonMari Your Mind? - 146

Nov 26, 2020

I’ve been a big fan of Marie Kondo, a tidying expert, for a while, (even though when I first heard Tim Ferris interviewing her a few years before I was like what?! Really? People need help with folding!?)

I started practicing her techniques about 18 months ago, and I love the space, calm and good habits that it has created for me and my home.

BUT this episode isn’t a promo for Marie, folding your clothes or chucking out your books… it’s about something that came up for me as I was working on a new story idea.

I had a bit of a lightbulb moment about some of the thoughts and beliefs that were holding me back, and so I thought I’d share with you in case it helps you handle the beliefs that might be holding you back too!

What you’ll discover:

  • The story prompt that started this all off.
  • How we can be sentimental about things that don’t serve us.
  • Why I think you should treat your beliefs like your clothes.
  • The KonMari concepts we can apply to our mind.
  • The default programs sitting in our blind spot and how to know if you’ve got them.
  • Suggestions for action.
