If you are going to see a pen, there is only one place to see it and do not waste time without knowing where it is.

Do not turn everything around you so complicated, so sophisticated and amazing that it becomes a maximalist. Be clear about everything, even in your interior.

Sort Everything Unnecessary and Discard it

Look at your room, your office, your house, your car, your closet, your drawers. Start to review each of those things that are part of you, that belongs to you or that you continuously inhabit and classify objectively what is left over.

It is unnecessary one of the two scissors that you have in your drawer, waiting for one to be damaged to use the spare. It is superfluous to plant in the corridor of your house, which only obstructs the passage through which you could walk. It is unnecessary the portrait of your cousins ​​on the wall of your room, which you have as friends in your social networks and speak to them when you please.Stop thinking so emotionally about the things around you, and get rid of what is not good for you, keep what you need around you.
