Many of my clients feel they never have time to organize, and I can sympathize. Next time you feel this way try the Strategy of 1: only de-clutter 1 drawer, 1 cabinet, or 1 space that is bothering you.
Tonight I cleaned out my "junk drawer" in the kitchen. It took less than 15 minutes and now I know what's in there. How can the Strategy of 1 help you?
- Organize 1 drawer in the kitchen; if you do 1 per day you'll get through them in a week
- Weed out 1 filing drawer in your office
- De-clutter 1 corner of your bedroom
I find that focusing on a single area can be much less overwhelming, and help you build motivation to do more. This month try the Strategy of 1.
