If the morning starts out reading 200Wad...

then moves over to a tab you're about to close on Twitter...

then as you're closing that Gmail tab you read about some event...


But, you're self-controlled enough to know this can't go anywhere good.


So, instead of just closing down the tab, you take the opportunity to unsub from several email newsletters you know  you're not going to read and who's personalities annoy you anyway.


Why do you want to listen to some supposedly rich guy tell you what to do in your life? What about discovering your own path and shape in this world.


As you're closing down Slack and OneTab-ing the rest, you realize the power of cleaning up.


Before you went to bed last night, you cleaned up your office. You cleared the desk and have everything ready to invest.


You're about to invest your attention - the most valuable thing you have. Even more valuable than that box of unopened, 5.25" floppy disks that should be in a tech museum rather than your garage.


Clean First is not Marie Kondo. But her book is great. Her show is decent -- but gets repetitive. 


Clean your space. Clear you mind. Get ready for the day.

    @brianball I like it. I recently purged my email of those pesky newsletters. Although I would rather listen to a rich guy than a poor guy....
