Discard what you can first

Romantic cliches would often tell us to leave the past behind in order to move on. Well that advice also applied to Marie Kondo’s method. Rather than discarding the past, we just discard the uneccessary things in our lives. Only then can we let new, exciting things enter into our lives.

Store by category

This advice can be applied towards important files and documents you have necessary for your adulthood. Categorizing them in order can help you in the long run when certain circumstances, like a job interview or passport renewal, arises.

When something thrilling or exciting comes, doesn’t it make you happy? Things, jobs, events, and even people are necessary for you to be contented and happy. You just have to choose which of those gives you joy.
