Today's Skype client was feeling stuck in her home office. She was frustrated by the stacks of papers that she hadn't looked at for a long while.
I said that it must be difficult for her to feel productive when surrounded by things that weren't encouraging and inspiring to her. She agreed.
I told her that by going through the papers one by one and tossing out whatever she no longer needed, she would be creating a feeling of freshness in the space. I had her imagine a refrigerator filled only with fresh food. I asked her how good that would feel. She really liked the idea.
