I recently finished The Art of Decluttering by Kon Mari. This short and simple book had a fairly profound impact on my life. Here are a few important principles that I learned from the book:
We engage in a thoughtful process when deciding how to declutter and organize our physical possessions, but the greater lesson is applying this process more generally in the way we think. By focusing on thoughts and activities that bring us joy and continually having an internal dialogue, we find time in our busy lives to reflect on who we really are and will become.
My life is now more organized and meaningful as I constantly remind myself to be thoughtful and reflect on how I live my life. I am also trying to apply the same thought processes towards work and coding :)
