What do organizing your space and organizing your thoughts and their expression have in common? Plenty, if you ask Juliet Landau-Pope, whose portfolio career underwent a fascinating pivot from academic teaching and editing, to professional decluttering and organizing, becoming a productivity coach and authoring two books on productivity and decluttering, following a one-off act of kindness towards an elderly, widowed neighbor.
When you perceive clarity as the act of deciding what to hold on to and what to let go of, what has meaning and what belongs in your life right now, the parallels in terms of defining your priorities within a given context - and acting on them - are crystal clear. We get overwhelmed by too much on our desk or in our diaries, and we certainly get confused by too much jumbled, unfocused information shipped towards us. We each edit how we conduct our lives. Much as we would do with a text we’d like to bring into better focus, to reveal and communicate its true essence and value to our readers.
Join us for episode 11 of Let’s Clarify It, in which Juliet clarifies:
How, though we can’t eliminate procrastination, we can manage it;
Why clarity in our instructions and communication serves our own interests as much as those of our listeners;
And which advantages are built into virtual communication, even for those who prefer in-person?
