I’ve been a bit dismissive of Omar’s obsession with minimalism. I am a hoarder.
At work, I struggle with the clear desk policy and, every six months or so, am forced to take out half an afternoon to sort through the piles of paperwork. I still keep a great deal of it. I just put it somewhere else. I am working on this.
Today, an unfortunate incident resulted in every single piece of my paperwork being soaked through and unsalvageable. Having the choice taken away from me, throwing away the lot of it didn’t feel that bad.
Perhaps this is the start of a new, minimalist me, Omar?
