Accumulation of crap
Okay that’s it, I am removing 90% of all items in my working space right now. I have long stretches where I get lazy about putting things into their proper place, and I have a lot of things where it’s not clear what their proper place is at all. So over the course of years, the space where I work tends to accumulate crap at a slow but significant pace, and before I know it, I’m surrounded by stuff I will never need again. If I ever really needed it in the first place.
And I can’t guarantee that it won’t happen again. But dammit, I can at least do something about this stretch, today.
