Today we are kicking off our summer series on Clutter & The Enneagram! Each week for the next 9 weeks, I chat with different guests who each have a different Enneagram type and talk about the role that clutter plays in their lives.
Does clutter stress them out? Are they clutter-blind? What strategies have they used to help keep them organized and clutter free?
To start our series, I am joined by Enneagram 1, Andrew Lang. Andrew is an educator in Tacoma, Washington, an Enneagram scholar and student of Richard Rohr’s Living School for Action and Contemplation. For the past eight years, he has led workshops and classes on the Enneagram throughout the Pacific Northwest, and is about to release his first book, Unmasking the Inner Critic: Lessons for Living an Unconstricted Life.
I invited Andrew on the show to talk about his journey into the Enneagram, and specifically what life is like as an Enneagram 1 (aka the Perfectionist or Improver).
During our conversation, Andrew opens up about
- what he calls “the should monster”
- His constant struggle to prove that he is “good enough”
- Why punctuality is important to him
We talk about the 3 types of clutter: physical, emotional, and calendar clutter, and which is most dominant in his life.
Regardless of your Enneagram type, this series gives you a front row seat to how clutter shows up differently in each of our lives. If you are new to our show, make sure to click the subscribe button-new episodes drop each Thursday.

P.S. Next week we will be talking with Melissa Klug (Enneagram2) & Jen Kilbourne (Enneagram 3) about the different ways clutter shows up between The Helper and The Achiever. It’s going to be a fun episode that you won’t want to miss.
