The move from Cleveland to Seattle is prompting some introspection.

We have too much stuff. I’m more than aware of this with the flotilla of broken down boxes that are waiting to get picked up in a few weeks.

It’s forcing me to look more globally though.

I looked at my inbox and I had a good 15,000 emails hanging out in it. (Personal inbox)

This is too much weight itself.

Last night I archived, deleted or otherwise categorized all of them.

Now, my inbox is empty.

Next, I need to do that with the house. Well, not empty it, but get rid of everything that is cluttering it up.

 All the stuff around
Gets in the way of thinking
Simplify my life.
