You CAN be organized and clutter free. Yes, you!

Let me show you how

IMG_2467 mediumDo you dread walking into your home office because it’s so chaotic and disorganized?

Do you have a perfectly good home office that you aren’t using because your organizing systems haven’t kept up with reality?

Are you craving simplicity and serenity but don’t see a way to get there?

Do you want to balance your full, engaged life with more simplicity and serenity?

Is your inability to make effective decisions about your stuff preventing you from getting to the level of organization you want?

Is it driving you nuts not to be able to find things?

Do you worry constantly about forgetting appointments and other commitments?

You’ve come to the right place.

Having an organized life that flows is possible.

Picture this: you wake up to a home that’s cozy and serene. Horizontal surfaces are clear and clothes are neatly put away. Your decor stands out in each uncluttered room.

You open a drawer and immediately find what you were looking for. Everything in your closet is clean, ready to wear and appealing. Walking into your home office inspires and energizes you to do your best work.

Your to do list has become a helpful ally that you enjoy crossing things off of. Email is under your control. You easily contain your Facebooking and web surfing so you can still enjoy them.

That may seem like pie in the sky. You’re sure you are the type who won’t ever be able to be organized. But…

What if it were simple?

What if I could show you how to get there, step by step? Imagine having a place for everything and a do-able way to get things put away. Imagine being on top of your life and how calm and centered you feel.

You can have this. Truly.

Overcoming resistance

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinby feather

I am happy to announce that the interview Mike Vardy did with me for The Productivityist podcast is now available. We had a terrific conversation about productivity, of course, and also habits, how to start, what clutter is, and today’s topic, resistance. You can listen here.

What is resistance? It’s when you don’t do the thing you said you wanted to do. It’s caused by many different things, but mainly fear of failure and feeling that you’re not good enough.

If you resist decluttering it may be because you don’t believe you will ever finish, or that the clutter will just come back again, or that you feel so ashamed of the clutter that you can’t bring yourself to deal with it.

One of my favorite books on this topic is The War of Art by Steven Pressfield. He presents resistance as an enemy that needs to be battled continually. But behind that, there’s something else: compassion.

Pressfield says everyone suffers from resistance. That means it’s part of the human condition. We humans have failings, some overcome-able and some that need simply to be accepted.

And that requires compassion.

Making the shift from blaming yourself and feeling like a failure to allowing yourself not to be perfect and accepting that is not always easy, but it’s very worthwhile. You may feel that you’re a compassionate person to everyone but yourself but that’s not real compassion. Once you start extending it to yourself, what you can give others is so much deeper and richer.

This may seem like heavy talk for dealing with clutter. But you probably already realize that your stuff isn’t just stuff. It’s imbued with emotions and regrets and worries and hopes. Accepting that is a great first step in overcoming resistance to decluttering.
