From Bedlam to Brilliance
Recently, I worked with a business owner in her office. As often happens with all of us at one time or another, life, both personal and business, gets in the way. Her office went from organized to chaotic in a short period of time, and she felt closed in and unproductive.
She figured she could do this on her own, but after 8 months of not doing anything, she realized she needed some help. She felt like it would have taken her quite a while since she viewed the task as sheer drudgery. To quote my client:
I needed someone to help me rein everything in and get back in control.
In three short hours, we were able to clean off her credenza and the top of her desk. What made this organizing session go so quickly is that my client already had a file system set up. There were papers that were recycled and shredded, and there were papers that were filed. In addition, there were several items that did not even belong in her office; they had homes elsewhere. To quote my client again:
I felt no pressure from you [Barbara Berman]. You inspired me to get the job done.
Systems and processes can always be tweaked to fit your needs as they change. In my client’s situation, we only tweaked one thing, and that was she re-implemented a pending file that she called “working.” If you don’t have a system or process in place, we can develop one and ensure that it is easily maintained. Maintenance is always easier when items have homes.
My client was very excited when she found her favorite calculator under all the papers. It’s the little things in life that can make you very happy.
What do you think you can organize in three hours? Believe it or not, it can be done.
Isn’t it time to get this weight off your shoulders and start enjoying your free time? There is always help if you think you can’t do it or don’t want to do it on your own.
This is Your Time to Go From Bedlam to Brilliance!
