Three Key Points:
There’s a term that Diane coined called “the clutter to drama ratio.” The more clutter you have in your space, the more drama you’ll experience in your life.
Clutter doesn’t have to only occur in your environment (i.e. home, car, work, etc.). This can happen mentally as well, and mental clutter can cause just as big an impact as environmental clutter.
Many of us tend to put too much on our plates (metaphorically speaking). Huge to-do lists, too many things going on, and feeling bad for “not getting everything done.” We need to set ourselves up to win instead.
