The Year of Organization?
Posted: Tuesday, Jan. 08, 2013
Will you make 2013 your year of organization?Clutter weighs heavy on our hearts and minds. It negatively effects our relationships with family members. It stresses us out. It reminds us of decisions that we have been putting off. It is, to be frank, not pleasant. If you are resolving to make this your year to turn it all around, then here are some words of advice. Make a commitment to getting organizing.
Tell a friend. Tell a coworker.
Write it down
Put your written goals in a prominent spot
Say I will get organized instead of I need to get organized
Focus on the positives that will come instead of the hard work ahead
Clutter is an outward expression of internal issues.
Your internal struggles and tensions are being outwardly expressed into piles
The clutter did not accumulate overnight.
It will take longer than a weekend to turn it all around
Getting organized is work -- staying organized is habit
We cannot know it all, keep it all, read it all, remember it all, do it all, have it all, or be it all.Cut yourself some slack before the New Year takes charge. Think about the road ahead. Know that there is work to be done. But once the hard work is complete, then it will be easier to keep up. Be sure to stay tuned as I will be bringing organizing ideas your way!If you have any specific questions or concerns about getting organized, then please feel free to email me.
