Einstein rules! He doesn’t clean up!

Where can you reduce clutter in your life?

“If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what then is an empty desk a sign?”

(A. Einstein)


audio mixer setThis is not a common question. It’s an existential problem for me! If you read the “About me” page or the section I called “Parallel Universes,” you will immediately understand that my entire life is perpetually cluttered!

The issue is hidden in the meaning. I don’t consider my clutter as something to get rid of. In other words, my “mess” is like raw material that will, sooner or later, collide in a big bang. That moment is generally a triumph for my creativity because something new will arise from old material I can’t use anymore.

To be precise, I remove clutter to create a further one and fill my life with several activities to improve each. It seems weird, but I need clutter to focus on something. I need other mental hooks to hang my will on.

Therefore, my answer is straightforward: I won’t ever remove any clutter; if I need it, I will create a new one immediately!
