I'm Marie Kondo I feel honoured to be standing here on such a wonderful stage today Everyone at SXSW is talking about big things but I would like to talk about something even bigger my grandmother my grandmother live in Miyazakia, a very peaceful place in Japan her house is not big and She does not own anything especially nice But she took very good care of her things her house was always clean and tidy Even inside her drawers were beautifully organised Just like her house, her presence was simple and beautiful She never got angry No matter what happened She was gentle I admire her very much she would always tell me Value what cannot be seen from the outside Normally people can't see inside your house however the way you organize the area and how to treat your belongings will greatly affect your way of thinking More than we imagine whether our house is tidy or not Has a great impact on our life Tidying is a big thing Now I'd like to ask you a question Is your house tidy? If you answer is no, don't worry, I can help you The answer is what I call the Konmari Method Let me show you some Konmari transformations before, and after before, and after another before, and after what a change Tidying with the Konmari Method will not affect only your house It will change your life while you are tidying using the Konmari method you will also understand yourself more and Design your life you want Today, I am going to tell you how to put your home in order in a way that will change your life forever But before this in order to understand for you how my method was created I would like to talk about my story I started to have an interest in tidying up when I was 5 years old I really like home lifestyle magazines that my mother subscribed to when I was 15 years old I started tidying seriously I tidied up and I read every book related to tidying And I tidied it up every place I go One day, I tidied up my own room Next today, my brother's room Next day, my sister's room then, the kitchen, living room, bathroom, the friend's room, friend's room, friend's room, classrooms after school and then back to my own room I tidied up every day When I was 19 years old, I became an organizing consultant My graduation thesis was about Tidying So safe to assume, I am a crazy tidying fanatic Without further ado, let's go on to the main subject, what is the Konmari method There are four Rules, Rule 1 Imagine your ideal life Before you tidy you need face your truth, you need to face yourself Why do you want to Tidy? What is your ideal life? Be specific I'll give you one example of my client Please imagine as you are resting my client ideal Life is pure white wall and floor There're simple yet essential furnitures and nice front Nothing else on the floor, very neat like hotel room before I go to bed a sense of lavender aroma, classic piano music playing in the background doing good yoga drinking chamomile tea before go to sleep that is the life I want to live, my client said This is how specific you should be You should be able to picture yourself within your ideal life if it is difficult to imagine your ideal lifestyle think about things you want to do inside your house and write it down on a piece of paper for some people is meditating before go to bed for others, it's drinking coffee with your favourite mug in the morning Imagining your ideal lifestyle is so important Setting your final goal will help keep you motivated while you are tidying So you should never skip this process Rule number 2 Tidy in one go if you want to become an organized person Shock your mindset and change it completely In order to do this You need a dramatic change in a short time You need to experience, just a tidy home, just once Your fastest step is to set a tidying deadline Tidying is not daily work. It is a special event If you have worked tidying deadline you are ready to start. Let's talk about the process Rule number 3 When you tidy, do it by category not by location Thinking today this closet, tomorrow the living room, does not work So I suggest when you sort your clothes Gather all of your clothes and put them in a pile all clothes I mean everything Find all of your clothes in your house Including the item in your bedroom, your closet, in your dresser, maybe your car, Gather all of your clothes and put them in a pile like this When you sort books, do the same thing Gather all of your books and put them in a pile like this Why is this important? By making a pile you can see everything you have imagined all of your clothes stacked in a pile You will probably be shocked by how much you own one of my client who collected tea cups When she gathered all of her teacups together, it look like this so many teacups, and she was in shock By seeing and realizing how much you own You will be able to choose what to keep with a calm mind So how do you choose what to keep? It is the most important part of a Konmari method To choose the item that spark joy for you if the item spark joy keep it if does not Get rid of it Does this item spark joy? what I want to tell you today is this When you are tidying You should focus on things, what you want to keep Not things what you want to discard if you try to tidy by looking for things to discard You will become unhappy as a matter of fact I used to be like that It is my story during high school When I was in high school. I thought tidying meant discarding things every day after school I look for things to throw away Even though I kept throwing things away My home did not feel tidy This caused me a lot of stress I was focused on the things I didn't like. I focused on the negative One day my stress reached tipping point I passed out in my room I did not wake up for two hours I am probably the only person in the world to pass out because of tidying too much Yeah, that's right But I was afraid I have this strange voice in my head the voice said, look at things more carefree I don't know if it was the voice of tidying God or just my imagination but when my mind opened and looked around my room It felt as if everything in my room was shining at that moment I realised my way of tidying until that day was wrong I thought That's it! The important thing about tidying is not choosing things to discard but choosing things to keep I must choose only items that makes me happy things that spark joy for me From this moment tidying became a positive thing for me and began to work well It is my aha moment So exactly how do you choose what sparks joy for you?
