Work organization: Get rid of garbage in the head

Two garbage cans as inspirational hangers for this text? Strange isn't it? Because the view of a garbage dump is not nice. But we should clear do what garbage means in our life - also in a figurative sense.


What is garbage?

We should first make clear what trash is actually. Under waste or garbage (Swiss also rubbish, Austrian also crap) means no longer needed remains. And no doubt: living in trash and garbage is no fun. We enjoy the beautiful, untouched nature, in good air.

Exciting is this consideration: Especially the civilized man produces waste. The more, the more MANY. In nature, on the other hand, there are no mountains of garbage. Consumed becomes new useful, new building material.

It's about personal waste

We only use the stinking garbage “out there” as a metaphor in this chapter. It's about "our" garbage. We accumulate quite a bit over the years.

Not just material in cupboards, basement and attic. We collect garbage in many areas of our lives. Garbage, the cost of living, burdening us and making our lives unnecessarily complicated. Just think of:

  • the feeling of being free again
  • the creation of new open spaces
  • the inner pig-dog, who often opposes the mucking

It's about YOU

Ultimately it is about YOU. To do all the things you still do, even though you do not (really) satisfy these things.

It's about thoughts that you do not have to think about for a long time. To emotions that have their roots in the past.

Identify your personal garbage

Maybe you do not care about it - then you can continue browsing. Perhaps, however, you have now become curious to find your garbage.

Because he likes to hide in dark corners. He thus becomes one with the other and has already become part of the personality.

Important! Only you know what is garbage for you. Only you decide what you need and what not.


A handbag has changed the owner for 152.000 Euro. These two surprise egg characters Smurfs were worth a collector over 7000 Euro. The Matchboxauto even brought 420 Euro without wheels.

What is the value of a model car, wine, surprise egg smurfs, shoes, handbag and envelope? What would these things be worth to you if you didn't? sell could, but only use?

The more emotional, the more we stick to it

Would you perhaps dispose or give away some of these things? What is the difference between garbage and collector's item? And what do you think an old letter can be worth? For you, for others?

Over the years, our brain has processed, analyzed, and stored situations. The more emotional these experiences are, the more durable they are burned as on a DVD. This is confirmed by neuroscientists and psychologists.

Experiences as part of our ego

In this way, painful experiences such as failure, loss and fear, but also moments of happiness such as success, love, satisfaction and joie de vivre become part of our selves. But this “DVD” does a lot more: It speaks to us!

We are constantly confronted with old experiences through inner dialogue - seductive, hurtful, admonishing, encouraging: “Don't get in line!” “What are you doing?” “What are you wasting your time with?” “Think about your age . "" Be sensible! "" Make an effort! "

The power of the inner voice

And we do not even seldom speak aloud, which makes us the inner voice amazed - unreflected and not really appropriate to any situation.

This voice can give us valuable impulses, for example to make good decisions quickly. But it can also hinder us from simply “being”: free for new experiences. Free to cross borders. Free to live our own lives.

The dramaturgy of life

Allow your voice to be the definitive director of your actions, largely shaping the dramaturgy of your life?

Or do you realize that some of what is stored on your DVD and is "for the best" (of course only for your best) is simply rubbish for you in the current situation? Garbage that obscures clear thoughts; Garbage that complicates your life; Garbage that makes change and satisfaction difficult.

Dispose of the internal garbage

Pay attention soon: Whenever something touches you - regardless of whether it is great anger or great joy - your personal “DVD” becomes particularly active.

Then you know it's time for psycho-hygiene; Time to recognize the garbage in our thoughts, worries, ideas, moods, emotions, expectations, fears, instincts, lies and other things and, if necessary, dispose of them. Because too much rubbish in the head is burdened and makes in the long run ill.
