A lot can happen in a year, right? I know it's been 9 months since I've posted a new entry - and I can give you lots of excuses. But, that would be just what they are - excuses, not reasons. The simple fact is, I didn't prioritize writing my blog over other things I had going on. Some of those things were important - like writing my first book, Living Within Your Means - A Practical Guide to Financial Freedom. Some, not so important - like watching every season of Survivor and Doctor Who available on Amazon Prime!
So, this post is about setting priorities. How does that fit with organizing? Well, when we're talking about organizing anything, we have to choose to make it a priority. When I work with my clients, most often, I hear lack of time as the reason for not being able to get organized and stay organized. But, I know from experience (both personal and professional) that most of us choose what we do with the time we have. And we typically don't choose to spend it on organizing.
Why is organizing important? Because it impacts pretty much all aspects of our lives. I'm not just talking about the physical space around us. Think about it! We have to organize our schedules to get where we need to be. We have to organize our finances so that we pay our bills on time (and we have enough money to do that). If you're a business owner, you have to have routine processes that everyone follows - that's an organized way of doing things.
My company is called "More Than Organizing" because I wanted to get across the point that my business is more than just 'space organizing.' I believe so strongly that organization can change lives that I wanted to help people in all those areas. Ready to get started? Give me a call, or complete the contact form to let me know how I can help. I'd also really love to see your comments and questions. Come on, be the first! :)
