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.

I can help you break through the mass of overwhelmingness. I’ll guide you patiently and compassionately to get the peaceful, functional spaces you crave. I’ll create systems specially for you to make it easy to keep your life clutter free and organized.

Habits are your friend

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinby feather

What are the best habits? The ones that work for you.

Why do they work? Because they are tailored to you in all your quirky glory.

It’s said that the early bird gets the worm and that early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise. But, frankly, I am not a morning person. Never have been.

When my mom woke me up for breakfast on school days she usually had to try several times. I slept like a corpse. By contrast, my sister was often awake already, before Mom came in the room.

But I’m a productive person and I get things done. So, there!

Figuring out what habits and strategies work best for you can be trial and error, or remembering back to a time when you were regularly successful. It can also help to do some self investigation about what kind of person you are. 

On her wonderful website, The Happiness Project, Gretchen Rubin writes a lot about habits. In fact, she has a book about forming habits coming out next spring that sounds terrific. 

She has a bunch of quizzes that allow you to identify yourself as a certain type of person. Kind of like astrology, but more helpful. Actually, I always thought astrology was helpful in that it gave you a list of qualities you could accept or reject; another way of investigating yourself.

Knowing your “type” in various contexts can also help you know what advice to take and what advice just won’t work for you. In the first example, I’m an “owl.” All those healthy, wealthy and wise folks are “larks.” Good for them!

Knowing that I’m an owl, I am now free to ignore advice that says I will be more productive if I get up before everyone else and work without distraction. What would really happen is that I would stare blankly at the wall and space out, or feel grumpy and focus on wondering when I could take a nap. 

It’s after 10 pm as I’m writing this. :).

And now, a haiku:

Habit is your friend
Unobtrusive and helpful
Always there for you
