Flushing the Buffers

I just spent two hours sorting and removing items from my wardrobe. Wardrobe isn't the right word because I don't think I have enough of a refined taste in men's apparel to have a wardrobe. Anyway I just donated to charity at least two-thirds of the clothes in my closet and drawers. It felt good. So good in fact that I'm probably going to continue the process in other areas of my life. The problem is that there is so much detritus accumulated in the various closets, cupboards, and corners of my life I have no idea where to begin. Work seems like the next logical step as that is an area giving me particular grief. Like some 40 year old Igby I feel like "I'm drowning in assholes". Things are so different than I imagined they would be when I started my own business over 5 years ago. All I wanted to do was consult, solve problems for people, and get paid. I was doing fine when I first started, then other people latched on and wanted to grow the thing into a consulting company. All I wanted to do was consult, solve problems for people, and get paid. Partnerships formed and collapsed. Lawsuits were filed and settled. Naively, new partnerships were formed. Things will be different this time. Yeah right. It's almost worse. No in fact it is worse. Yes, things must change and change soon. Where is that garbage bag?
