The Art Of Office Space Intervention
Decluttering isn’t a new concept. But it seems like the war on clutter is especially intense at the moment, thanks to Marie Kondo and others who are taking messy spaces by storm. In this episode, we’ll talk to author Gretchen Rubin about her new book, Outer Order, Inner Calm: Declutter and Organize to Make More Room for Happiness. Liz will ask Gretchen for an “office space intervention” (goodbye old power cords!) and discuss whether decluttering actually makes you more productive.
Then, Liz and Rico speak to listener Robin, a teacher in Utah experiencing “compassion fatigue” after trying to be everything for her students. And in our Work Pop segment, we’ll look back on the ‘90s HBO classic, Mr. Show.
Last but not least, in ongoing effort to bring you stories from people who’ve made some big changes in their work life, we’ll speak to digital strategist Candice Kilpatrick, who went from being laid off in New York to head editor for a “space lifestyle” magazine. Yes, that’s a thing.
