I was talking to my father on XMAS Day, and we were reflecting about the past year. He turned 95 in October and until recently, he was able to manage by himself after my mother died. This past year he had a small stroke and underwent a pinning for a broken hip. After all of this, his mind is still sharp, and he is a pleasure to be around. The only differences now are that he can’t drive, is not playing bridge four (4) times a week, is no longer traveling, and needs full-time help for several of his activities of daily living. I know he is used to being independent, but there are times in all of our lives when we need help.
It really doesn’t matter how old you are or how, when, or where you need this extra assistance. It is just good to know there are people around who can help you in those areas where you need it the most. I thank my accountant, lawyer, and personal trainer every day.
Have you ever wondered how a Professional Organizer can help you? Do you tell yourself all the time that this is something you can do on your own, but you never get started because the task seems daunting? Take a minute to answer these 3 questions.
- What would it feel like if you were organized?
- How would you feel if you no longer felt overwhelmed by all your things, if you could find things easily, and if the systems you put in place worked easily for you?
- Would you enjoy organizing if you could have fun, while being motivated and inspired at the same time?
If you are surrounded by clutter, if you feel overwhelmed because you don’t know where to start, and if you want to have fun while organizing, I can help you. I work with you one-on-one to evaluate your needs, help you figure out what works for you and what doesn’t, and support you in the process of getting and staying organized. Creating order out of chaos assists in reducing stress, saving time, and saving money.
I ask questions, help you decide what to keep and what not to keep, and figure out places to put those items you decide to keep. I also have resources to help with those items you are no longer keeping (other than what you decided to discard).
There is no need to be embarrassed by your clutter. I am non-judgmental, a good listener, and treat every client with complete confidentiality. As a member of National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO), Professional Organizers abide by a Code of Ethics, which is “a set of principles to provide guidelines in our professional conduct with our clients, colleagues, and community”.
I realize many people have busy schedules. In the long run, getting organized will make it easier for you to finally have the time to do the things you want to do. Organizing takes a commitment on your part and incorporating organizing time into your schedule will help you stay on track and reach your goals. Once your systems are in place, they are much easier to maintain.
Remember – You want to control the clutter, you don’t want the clutter to control you.
READY, SET, GO From Bedlam to Brilliance!!!
