As Professional Home Organizers everyone expects us to be 100% organized.
Well, guess what? I’m not. So when I goof up, I smile and say in a very poised and charming manner “I’m showing my humanity.” Then I’m over it.
As our businesses grow, our lives sometimes feel complicated and we feel conflicted because we are pulled in too many directions all at once. We stress about how we are going to manage to accomplish everything on our “To Do” lists that just keep getting longer and longer.
We sometimes struggle to keep our homes and home offices in order and to find enough time to rest and to spend with our families and our friends. We help our clients simplify their lives. Perhaps we need to follow our own advice and simplify our professional and our personal lives.
Whatever changes you want to make in your personal or business life, here are a few tips.
To follow through with your good intentions you need to:
- Be fully committed
- Set an Intention
- Write an Action Plan
To achieve your goal, you need to:
- Stop making excuses and prioritize your first step
- Eliminate ways of doing things that are no longer serving you
- Adopt new habits that serve your present needs
When our prospective clients are hesitant to commit to their first session or when our current clients become discouraged by the enormity of their project, we tell them to close their eyes and visualize how good it will feel when they have achieved their goal.
Let’s slow down and practice what we preach. Close your eyes and visualize how good it will feel after you have simplified one aspect of your life or one area of your home or home office.
