511: How Knowing Your Personality Can Help You Declutter

Part 3

Do you sometimes burn out from so much decluttering at once or because you can’t figure out the best system? Often we need to recognize and understand things like how we make decisions and where our need for control comes from to move forward. Kathi and enneagram coach Lori Young are helping us to build better strategies for tackling our clutter based on our personality. In the first episode, they discussed decluttering strategies for those of us who like to think through decisions. In the second episode, they offered help for those who decide from the heart. Now in episode three, they are giving great suggestions for those who make decisions from the gut. Join in the conversation to learn more about how knowing the tendencies of your personality can help you declutter better by:

  • Knowing how to plan and strategize better
  • Recognizing our tendencies
  • Understanding our motivators

If you don’t know your enneagram number, you can find out here. Embrace your God-given personality while you tackle the clutter in a more efficient way.
