Author Jeff Davidson says, "If you're continually facing too much information, too much paper, too many commitments, and too many demands, you need Breathing Space."

Pare Down for more Breathing Space - Breathing Space Blog

My book, Breathing Space which has been translated into Japanese, French, Italian, Chinese, Malay, and Spanish, introduces 'paring down.'  It's a means of discarding what does not serve you, what does not support your work, what does not make your home life more pleasant, what gets in the way, or what you've been hanging onto for too long.

Where in your personal or professional life can you pare down? Check the items below that you suspect require attention. Use this list as a starting point, since many areas may not be of concern to you or you may need to add some of your own areas.

Where else can I pare down?:
[ ] Front hall closet
[ ] Kitchen cupboards
[ ] Bedroom closet
[ ] Under kitchen sink
[ ] Den closet
[ ] Under bathroom sink
[ ] Other closet
