As a writer, I spend a lot of time editing and revising my work. I enjoy it.
However, looking around my home office, I notice some of the same problems. Instead of words, of course, I'm dealing with furniture, books, etc. Some things are just clutter. Some items are redundant. Some objects I need to get rid of simply because they annoy me. Others have outlasted their purpose. In certain areas, a little rearranging could make great improvements. I'm trying to convince myself that just because an item is perfectly good, it may not be good for me.
Editing one's life is much more difficult than one's words.
