I’ve always been an organizer. From a young age, I created schedules, carried planners and loved the idea of being neat and tidy. I wasn’t the child that had to be told to clean her room. In fact, I regularly cleaned the house without being asked just because I liked to do it. I thrive in an environment of order. It just makes me happy.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. That’s wonderful, but what does any of this have to do with me? I’m realistic so I don’t expect everyone to feel the same way about organizing as I do. I do believe, however, that you’ve landed here for a reason. The fact is that everyone has a natural way of organizing their lives. The question is, as Dr. Phil puts it, “How’s that working for you?”
This brings us to the most logical place to begin: the beginning. Most people are surprised to find out that two of the most essential elements of organization don’t have anything to do with physical space. The first is to be open and honest with yourself about where you are organizationally, and how you got there. The second is to be willing to learn something new to change your current behavior. Understanding and harnessing these principles can really help to make a difference in your life today.
My hope is that this blog becomes a platform which cultivates an educational and inspirational reservoir of organizing solutions, ideas and experiences which is shared openly and embraced wholeheartedly. The opportunity to start being the organized, balanced person you desire is just around the bend. Let’s get started.
