Over the weekend, this girl on youtube delivered me some luscious tips on decluttering.
I fast forwarded the parts about how to consolidate your nail polishes, because I’m not that type of guy.
But one thing she said that I really liked was that “clutter attracts more clutter”.
I’m not really sure what that means, but intuitively it makes sense.
Like if you have a bunch of random stuff, you might also acquire a bunch of other random stuff to coordinate with, manage, or clean the original random stuff.
And it got me thinking about how similar to the laws of clutter, problems will often attract more problems.
Problem girlfriends always carried with them many varieties of other problems.
And until I was ready to accept the catch-all solution (get rid of the girl), I was always going to be stuck with all the problems that came with the girl.
And as legal services and products go, a lot people aren’t ready for the types of solutions I offer because the problem I am solving is eclipsed by even greater problems.
Like when you buy my ready-to-go power of attorney, it’ll save you and those close to you a ton of headache, time, and expense down the road.
And it’s super cheap to buy, and takes probably less than 15 minutes of your time to fill out.
But if you don’t have anyone in your life trustworthy enough to manage your affairs for you in the event you are (for one of many reasons) unable to do so yourself, then you’ve got an “eclipsing problem”.
You’ve got a no-trustworthy-people-in-my-life problem.
Which is not a problem I can solve, unfortunately, but it is a problem that can be easily solved with a little thought, time, and attention, assuming you are not yourself the problem or an azz-hole who pushes others away.
Point is, since problems can attract other problems, it helps to follow the chain of problems to the root problem, and prioritize solving that one first.
This often has the beneficial effect of making other associated problems disappear.
But if you already have at least one, if not several, trustworthy people in your life, then you’re ready to take the next step and give them the legal authority to step in for you when you need them most.
