David NgoBehavior Design Applied:3 Environment Changesthat Uncluttered myMind and Life
1. Take Everything Off: Time Spent: 3 minutes Result: Sharpened Focus at the Task at Hand I would only put one task at a time on the table. For example, if I’m working on brainstorming new ideas, I would only put my brainstorming material on the desk. How to take everything off in 3 min? Grab a box, dump everything inside (if work at a ofﬁce) Move everything to on top of your bed (if in college). You’ll move it later.
2. Simplicity at First Sight: Time Spent: 5 minutes Result: Return home happy Imagine returning home, getting to the front door, inserting the key, opening the door and the ﬁrst thing you see is clutter, messiness, and disorganization. For working adults, this is the moment of transitioning from work to home every day. For college students, we go back to our dorms multiple times a day. Each time, what is waiting for you when you open the door? Make it positive. Make it simple.
3. Clean Icons: Time Spent: 6 minutes Result: Task Efﬁciency & Compliments :) If you don’t have a smartphone with apps, you will in the near future. Don’t let it get cluttered. If you already have one, did you organize it that ﬁts the way that your brain thinks? How many times do we open up our phones? Each time we open our phones up, it should be an AWESOME EXPERIENCE. Organized icons might not be an AWESOME experience for you, but at least it will not be a frustrating one.
