What Clutter Says

“I am never five minutes into stripping the clutter from my life before I start running into the clutter that is my life.”

— Robert Brault

Clutter says a lot about us.

  • Clutter? Or evidence that we live with some pretty awesome, if slightly messy, kids?

    Dirty dishes are evidence of hunger averted.

  • A heap of magazines is evidence of literacy.
  • An umbrella in a corner is evidence of shelter.
  • A remote control on the carpet is evidence of technology.
  • Piles of paper are evidence of gainful employment.
  • Game pieces on the window sill are evidence of laughter and community.
  • And mounds of shoes are evidence of children, whom you love.

We may not like clutter, but it reveals how much we really have.

Yesterday’s gift of time … Did the dishes. Evidence that we ate well.

About Eric Winger

Our perception of time is key to how we use our time. The most fundamental way to change that perception is to give our time. This opens us up to new opportunities and ideas from which we can build to really make a difference. ... Yes, we *do* have time to make a difference!
