Organization Tip of the Day

A common response I get when I speak is that people don’t have any time to get organized. I’m always baffled by that response. Not surprised because I hear it a lot, but baffled.

If you’re wasting time looking for things, are overwhelmed by your email inbox, can’t see the top of your desk because of all the paper piles, and constantly feel behind – what do you expect to change if you don’t take the time to do anything about these situations? I don’t get it.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results!

You have to take time to make time. Really, you do! Why don’t you try it and see if I’m right. Go to your calendar and make a 30-minute appointment for yourself in the next week. During that time just pick 75 emails, two stacks of paper or one cupboard in your house and deal with the stuff. I guarantee you’ll get more organized than you think AND the next time you look at your inbox, the top of your desk, or that cupboard you’re going to feel great that you did something which will motivate you to go on to the next area you want to organize.

    This is so true! I have done this many times with different areas in my home and it works! It makes me happy when I look at the areas that are in order and the things I need to keep have a “home” and the things I don’t are GONE!
