Phone Coaching to Get You Organized

Facebooktwitterpinterestlinkedinby feather

Getting yourself organized is not rocket science. Unless the Muppets' game "One of These Things Is Not Like the Others" left you scratching your head, you can sort stuff into categories. You're also capable of making decisions instead of adding to your teetering pile of things you'll decide on at some later, unspecified date (which, honestly, may never come).

Jumping rope is not rocket science. Making and eating a healthy salad isn't rocket science. But people don't always do those things on their own. They hire personal trainers, or go to gym classes, or join Weight Watchers. Of course, you can learn the "how-to" from trainers and classes. But there's another big thing they provide, and that's accountability.

If you avoid the jump rope session in your living room, no one will know. At the gym, your trainer is standing right there, so of course you're going to jump. Also, you've decided to be at the gym at that time to do that very thing. Working with a professional organizer provides that structure too.

Say you don't really want to hire an organizer, what can you do? Well, I'm glad you asked because I'm offering a new service; accountability coaching. It's a simple way to stay on track with your organizing goals, whether you're decluttering a closet, managing your time or sorting out the paper on your desk.

The way it works is that you call me once a week and we'll talk for 15 minutes. We discuss what you got done last week, how it went, what problems came up and how to deal with them, what you're planning for next week and how you'll make that happen. It's amazing how much progress you can make when you know you'll be reporting in to someone! Also, talking about what you are doing can uncover issues you might not have recognized and help you overcome obstacles you now know how to handle.

Accountability coaching is perfect if you have a pretty good idea of what you want to organize but you don't seem to be getting to it on your own. It's also great if you don't live in my area and can't see me in person. Click the link above for more details, or the one under Phone Coaching in the left column. Or right here.

As always, the initial half hour phone consultation is free. I'm also offering a money-back guarantee. If the sessions don't help you make progress after one month, I'll give you a full refund. What have you got to lose?
