I'm looking for a few steps I can take towards living a life with less clutter and complication. Not just with physical stuff, either! I want more streamlined daily activities, relationships, goals, etc. I feel that I can be more focused on what's important if I did a little cleaning. What are some ways that you can recommend for a leaner life?

By now you should have a clearer picture of your daily needs. Also begin to consider how you will deal with other factors in the long term- are you going to live the same lifestyle in a year? 10 years? It is good to know how long you want to plan for, that way you can have a more structured decision making process.

When it comes to streamlined relationships, you have to know your role and work to maintain it. For example If you are a father, then you have to make decisions based on the best outcome for your kids. You don't have to debate so much internally if you understand your purpose in a relationship. If you are doing unnecessary activities when it comes to the context of a relationship, then you can work to eliminate that behavior.

Now that your material possessions, daily routine, and personal interactions are now more organized, you can focus on coming up with inventive new ways to do multi task. See if you can combine errands or create multiple solutions with a single action.
