I then opened Pages (Mac's Word Processor) and typed myself out a few goals. I then went back through my stacks of junk and successfully sorted it. I know I was successful because I had sorted it according to my goals. They allowed me to know when I was done. Closure is a fantastic feeling.

While cleaning up my room, I've found a valuable tool in setting goals. Originally I started out by going through my room discarding random effects that had little value to me anymore. I also put aside objects that I wasn't sure what to do with at that point in time. I thought to myself, I'll know what to do with it in the future. The problem is, I've done that countless times before, set things aside for my future self to take care of. Thanks a lot Past-Nathan. No longer though.
