How many times have you said to yourself "I want to get organized, but"..., then you do nothing about it?
I know, for a fact, that this happens more times than not! Do you want to know why? Why is it we get frustrated, overwhelmed and do absolutely nothing?
For some, it's because they don't know where to start. Perhaps it's because it is just too overwhelming when looking at the whole picture. For others, it's because they have started the process but never finished and gave up. For certain people, however, it is because of fear. Fear can cause some people to not even try.
What causes that feeling of fear? There are several reasons. I mentioned frustration and overwhelm. How about the feeling of failure?
Is it possible that you want to get organized but are afraid you will not do a good job and therefore, do nothing at all?
Do you believe that you will not be able to make the right choices when deciding what to keep, toss or donate? What justifies keeping something, throwing it away, donating it? Do you know? These are questions that tend to come up a lot when going through the process of organizing.
Is it possible that you are afraid that you will commit the time to weeding through your stuff and not get the results you set out to achieve? Perhaps you cannot visualize what the end result will look like, and, therefore, cannot even get started.
Finally, is it possible that you are afraid to let go of things you know you don't want but feel guilty about getting rid of them?
All of these fears can cause you to freeze or feel stuck and either not get started at all, or, in the alternative, start the process and not finish.
As a professional organizer, I work with my clients one-on-one to not only help them visualize the final outcome, but take the steps needed to not only start the process, but get past those obstacles such as fear and get the job done.
The next time you hear yourself saying "I want to get organized, but"..., remember, it is more common than not to feel frustrated, overwhelmed and perhaps frozen with fear when it comes to getting organized.
