Recovering from Death and Organizing My Closet

Hey everyone!

Thanks for the well-wishing that was sent my way earlier this week.

For those of you that don't know I was infected with the worst stomach bug to hit a human, ever!

I joke, but my wife, who has known me for close to a decade, has said on several occasions that "this is the sickest I have ever seen you".

I probably spent more hours in the past week asleep than awake.

My child didn't even see me for the first 24 hours. I felt like I was dying.

My immune system is normally among the best, I rarely get sick. 

BUT!

But, when I get sick it is a terrible experience for everyone!

I spent more time on the porcelain thrown than I did eating anything.

With all of my out of office actions, I haven't had much time to do anything for you guys!

My loyal customers!

I'm working on a new product, I haven't announced it yet.

If you'd like to have some say in what that new product is (or other future products). Give me your opinions here!

I hope you guys are feeling better this week than I was!

On a different note.

A lot of people telling me their biggest problem is time.

They don't have enough of it, they want to spend more time with their families.

How much time do you spend with your kids? How much time do you spend with your spouse?

What is an appropriate time to spend on the toilet scrolling through Facebook?

I spend a great deal of time with my family, honestly, it's probably why I'm such a happy person most of the time.

I find the more organized I get the more free time I end up having.

You spend a lot of time cleaning up, looking around, searching for stuff and you don't even really realize it.

Do you have a specific location for everything you own?

NEITHER DO I! But I am working on it.

When you buy stuff do you think of where it will live in your house?

NEITHER DO I! But I am working on it.

As a person who's paycheck kind of relies on you buying stuff, I shouldn't say this but, do you really need more crap?

All that crap is eating up your time. Organizing your life will lead you to a better life.

Getting rid of the dozens of t-shirts you have, reducing the amount of laundry to do, will make your life better. 

Believe me. I started paring down my closet a year or so ago, not Kondo style either.

I just have a "donate bag" hanging on my door and every time I look at something in my wardrobe I try to think "do I really need this?" if it isn't an immediate yes, it goes into the bag.

I suggest doing this! It starts out hard and gets easier as you do it.

My wardrobe gets smaller, my laundry time gets smaller, my time to get dressed in the morning gets smaller. Everything is coming up winning.

Well, that's all the "sage" advice I got for today!
