Getting organized sometimes feels harder than staying organized and taking the first step is the hardest part and sometimes the most time consuming. But we are ready and can’t wait to see all we can accomplish!
Julie Morgenstern, organizing and time management expert, shared her strategies with Real Simple on how to overcome roadblocks and how to finally stay organized – dreams do come true!
1. Shift Your Mindset
This is the gateway to the bigger goal. This will help save time, money, and access to the things you own. Important to remind yourself that distraction, anxiety, and stress will eliminate itself when also eliminating disorganization. Focus on what you will gain from this experience.
2. Keep the Stuff
Start in the smallest space you spend the most time in. Organize your bathroom drawer, your handbag, your refrigerator – this will leave you motivated for any other future projects!
3. Make the Payoff Visible
Write your goals down and have them serve as a reminder.
4. Avoid Distractions
Organization involves a lot of decision making – whether you think it or not – avoid any distraction that take away from the task.
