Clarity Matters was born out of sheer observation, sitting in a cafe looking at the bookshop next door, while I waited for Brian my husband at his business coaching appointment. I thought if that was my bookshop, I’d take the broken old blind off the window, move the tall fixtures to the back of the shop to open it right up and make it more welcoming, get rid of all the boxes that accumulated around the counter tripping people up and so on. So I made a list of all the changes I thought may help the store owner from the female perspective and from the customer’s perspective. I was so excited that I gave the list to Brian when he was finished his coaching appointment which resulted in the client asking me to work with him for 2 days to make the changes. Hence the official start to Clarity Matters and decluttering in 2002!
Quite often, having someone from outside the family can be helpful when sorting through clutter. There can be an enormous amount of shame associated with clutter, so dealing with that can be challenging and even overwhelming to start with. It’s become obvious in my experience that family members helping another family member sometimes is not that effective, for a variety of reasons.
The decluttering process is so much more than just clearing out spaces in homes and offices. Where people have a struggle with letting go, for whatever reasons associated with their life experience, stepping in and clearing out for them can be extremely traumatic. Invariably, in these situations, the clutter will end up returning in a short period of time.
