I’m Back!

Greetings friends near and far,

I’m still here — in the blogosphere, I am totally committed to keeping my June 21 goal of downsizing the majority of my belongings.

Focus and discipline are so important no matter what my endeavor may be. One of my biggest issues is keeping the main thing the main thing. It’s so tough. There are so many distractions, and I feel myself being pulled in so many directions. But I must reel it all back in and list four goals that are important to me at the moment:

1. downsizing my abode by June 21;
2. prioritizing and sticking to my daily “To Do” list;
3. consistent and diligent marketing of my voice acting career; and
4. studying contract bridge four hours a day.

Frankly, I don’t like to be disciplined. It is so much easier for me to just do whatever I feel like doing, when I feel like doing it, as much as I feel like doing it, and with whomever I feel like doing it with. But that is just not possible if I expect to reach the levels of success I envision for myself.

If I’m going to accomplish the goals I have set for myself, I’d better get crackin’.

Any ideas on how to stay focused?

Keeping it easy and breezy,

Vita Reid, The One Minute Minimalist.


About Vita Reid

"You cannot Change What You Will Not Confront." T.D. Jakes. I am a 1993 graduate of Smith College, having majored in Psychology with a minor in Mathematics. I lived in Lawrence House during my senior year. I am an ardent bridge player and soon-to-be expert. My motivation to declutter, minimalize and clean my apartment began 10 years ago when I visited my friend's minimalistic apartment in Manhattan. He owned nothing. My motivation to speed the process of down-sizing my possessions along is fueled by a desire to entertain a world-class bridge player at my home during the world games to be held at the Marriott Hotel on Market Street in Philadelphia in October 2010. Being that I will be working almost exclusively from home when my voice over career flourishes, I would like to make my apartment pleasing to my own eye. Since clutter can also be an impediment to creativity, I find it essential to rid myself of it so that I can develop more creativity in many areas of my life, including at the bridge table, my blog posts and developing creative marketing strategies for my voice over business. This blog represents a diary of my genuine feelings moment by moment as I make the transformation from 12 years of disorganized clutter to owning only the bare essentials of life. May you find a few nuggets in the writings to inspire you in your life's journey. Keeping it easy and breezy in the land of less, Vita Reid The One Minute Minimalist
