    In today’s episode, Andrew brings up a topic that may strike a nerve and cause you to react in a way that’s not pleasant. It may even make you feel a little threatened. And that’s OK.

    As you look around at your stuff, maybe you say “I love all of it!” But consider this: If everything is precious, nothing is precious.

    So how do you decide what stays and what goes? Today, Andrew gives you a simple, practical idea.

    To drive home the point, he relates a poignant story from working with one of his private clients. This simple decision making tool helped them get rid of clutter and sell a valuable item for $20,000!

    So if you want to do a little introspection, if you are willing to examine your desire to hang on to everything and ask yourself, “Where’s this feeling coming from?”, and if you want less clutter, and less stress, this is an episode you don’t want to miss!

Really move the needle

This show has helped me focus on things that are helping me stay clear on what will actually help my career and happiness versus how to organize my drawer, which it also helps 😂💙

Rhompie ,

Thank you!

I love this show! I just discovered it as I’m sorting through my father’s belongings after he died in July this year. Needed your guidance on how to process all of this in a logical fashion yet acknowledging the emotional aspects, too. Thank you!

Pilotswife94 ,

Awesome tool!

I saw a segment on my local news channel, where Andrew appeared. It was actually a repeat, so I feel that God lead me to watch it. I’ve needed a wise and assertive motivator and here you are! Thanks for the time and effort you are putting in to sharing your wisdom with me. God Bless!

Update: after having signed up to you DYM challenge... And buying the long term access.. I so appreciate how Andrew gets to “the stuff behind the stuff” because it is the root of the issue. How refreshing .. most “organizers” are selling nothing but a way to promote a “container” system or style..Lacking containers is NOT what’s behind my stuff IMHO.. thanks again..
