I come from the Da Vinci school of de-cluttering, whose motto is simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

My quarterly cull took place last week.

There was only one rule:

Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful. Including rancid relationships, psychic vampires and dream stealers.

The result? The slow leak in my fuel tank has been fixed and I’m driving down the highway of life a little faster with no excess baggage.

As the impressionist painter Philip Hoffman would say, "the unnecessary has been eliminated, so that the necessary may speak."

My mind’s spam filter has been reset, because I’d allowed one too many time wasters and toxic people inside my head. I’ve raised the price of admission to keep them out…..

….. my mind is friends with me again.

It’s simple: Your plans won’t work unless you do…..time for a clear out?
