The idea behind a Clean Sweep is that when you have things that are on your desk that are taking up energy, it causes you to get distracted, to get depleted, to not be able to focus properly and really just keeps you from playing your best game
Sherman Oaks, CA (PRWEB) September 26, 2007
A national 'de-cluttering' day will free up time and energy for countless entrepreneurs.
Success coach Melanie Benson Strick has come up with a new way to help entrepreneurs and small business owners create massive success in their businesses and lives.
She's named a day where entrepreneurs and small business owners take the time to address all the clutter and/or unfinished projects that surround them, sucking their energy and keeping them from working at top efficiency.
Called National Clean Sweep Challenge Day, it takes place on Friday, October 5, 2007. This is the second year she's held National Clean Sweep Challenge Day.
Strick created the Clean Sweep Challenge as a means to encourage entrepreneurs and small business owners to set aside a block of time just for clearing out unfinished business that interferes with creating "massive results, income and success in their businesses and lives." She also encourages participants to invite their friends and colleagues to support each other's efforts so they all can see results in their businesses.
"The idea behind a Clean Sweep is that when you have things that are on your desk that are taking up energy, it causes you to get distracted, to get depleted, to not be able to focus properly and really just keeps you from playing your best game," Strick said.
Beyond physical clutter, the Clean Sweep Challenge is a time to clear out projects that keep people up at night. It's also a good time to take care of languishing emails and phone calls, to address technology challenges that impede efficient working conditions, and even to clear up difficult situations with family, friends or colleagues.
In order to help support participants during the Clean Sweep Challenge so they're able to get as much done as possible, Strick is offering a free toolkit. The toolkit includes numerous free downloads, including the Clean Sweep Assessment, to help participants figure out what they need to clear out, a Clean Sweep Focus Plan that helps them figure out how to clear it out, as well as an audio download of Strick's dynamic recording, "Environments that Pull You Forward".
Strick's support doesn't end with the toolkit. In addition, she'll send support emails and focused articles to help participants build their support team and prepare for the actual Clean Sweep day. She has also built a participant page with a community forum where everyone across the country participating in the Clean Sweep can log on and share their experiences, victories and challenges.
"The idea is that everybody can jump on board to take the challenge together," said Strick. "When we get rid of the clutter, we are 30 to 50 percent more effective on what matters most - completing our goals and making money."
