As I sort through all the piles of clutter, there is one thing that is slowing me down. I cannot make quick decisions. There is a value attached each item: should I keep it? Should I donate it or sell it? I might use this random item again, do I take the chance and get rid of it and repurchase it again? Maybe I should keep it because I don’t want to waste money buying it a second time. But if I sell it, I can put the money towards my debt! And maybe I won’t need it again…or better yet I can borrow it! This is the process my mind goes through while holding a single item. As you can guess, it’s taking awhile to go through everything. Sometimes I can make really quick decisions! Luckily I’m a hoarder who doesn’t keep actual trash and can make a quick decision for that. But the longer I’ve had the item, the longer and more strenuous the decision process takes. I need to learn how to make quicker decisions. My clean up process could go so much faster if I could do this! I came across a YouTube video that explained the 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins. It said to make a quick decision within 5 seconds before your brain can register it. I will try to apply this 5 second rule while sorting through the next clutter pile. I’m hopeful to see if this helps me and sort through everything at a faster pace!
