Do you ever pick up a pen from your desk, try to use it, and it doesn’t work and you put it right back where you found it? How many times do you keep trying that pen?! The pen fairy is not going to come during the night and fix your pens!
Get a basket and collect all the pens, markers, pencils, Sharpies, etc from on top of your desk, in the drawers, tucked behind the monitor, and on the floor.
Sort by type and try each and every instrument. Toss/recycle the ones that don’t work.
Get cute containers to hold your ‘good’ pens, etc.
This may seem like a little thing to do but it’s a huge start to getting rid of what does not work in your life. Who knows what you will sort, test and toss next!
What are you waiting for?
