Becoming aware of shadow work enables us to prune away some of the clutter in our lives. Take, for example, surveys—the inundation of our time with surveys, requests for surveys. It seems you can’t buy anything or go anywhere or receive any service without having a followup survey usually emailed to you to ask you, “How did we do?” And I would just encourage the citizens to throw those away if they don’t feel like writing them. We are not obligated to fill out these surveys, but these organizations are preying on our time and asking us to do it. And that’s the kind of clutter that you can prune away.
