The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up is a book you can read in one sitting. It not only teaches readers about tidying up but also about how to unclutter our lives.
I’m a methodical person with peculiar morning rituals. For me, rituals are paramount. Thus, it's unsurprising that I find the KondoMarie method fabulous for personal productivity and mental fortitude. I love the simplicity of her writing and that ultimately, by giving life to what you own you understand if “they spark joy” or not. I wrote some in-depth thoughts on the subject here.
“The question of what you want to own is actually the question of how you want to live your life.”
“When we really delve into the reasons for why we can’t let something go, there are only two: an attachment to the past or a fear for the future.”
“Keep only those things that speak to your heart. Then take the plunge and discard all the rest. By doing this, you can reset your life and embark on a new lifestyle.”
