Organization is a key to success. Knowing where you stuff is allows you to find it quick and with ease. Disorder causes stress, although some stress is good stress too much of it will take its toll on us and everyone around us.
Looking back through yearbooks, journals, old class projects and other old things I have noticed that I am not the same person I was 10 years ago. My ideals have changed dramatically, along with my taste in clothing, musics, movies, etc. There is one thing that will always be present in our lives, and that is change.
As you begin to clear the clutter from your life remember and recognize that you are not the same person you were 10 years ago, even one year ago. When you begin organizing keep in mind to surround yourself with things that are part of who you are now and get rid of what is no long useful.
Tip: Pretend You are Moving, Ask yourself: Is this item worth the effort of packing up, carrying out to the moving van and unpacking it at the new place? If not, give it a new home. (The one-minute organizer, Smallin, D.)
Goal this week: Update your life- be who you are now and not who you were then
Check back in next week.
