Well, it’s appropriate that my last blog entry (in October) was about procrastination and now we are only days away from the New Year! Yes, I am also guilty of having the best intentions and not always staying on track. Who isn’t, right? Although I do try to stay organized as I instruct my clients to do, I can sympathize with their anxiety when they put off tasks that they feel less confident in tackling.
I started this blog to try to share some of my insight and experiences from my 8 years as a professional organizer, however I often feel that my greatest strength is not as a writer. That would be my husbands talent!
His advice was that I should just share some thoughts, and to remember that I’m not trying to write a novel.
I suddenly realized that I am not so different from a lot of my clients who struggle constantly with organization, especially clients who have “Type A” personalities and will either do something 150% or not at all. There is no middle ground! Sound familiar? We are all so afraid that we won’t do something perfectly that we sometimes do nothing at all.
