Motivations for Organization

One of my all time favorite quotes to reference when coaching organizing clients is by Jim Rohn -



"Motivation is what gets you started, habit keeps you going."


If you have the goal of getting or staying organized in your home, office or life - take some time to consider the 'why' behind that desire.  What is the motivating factor that will spur you on when the going gets tough?

Here are a few possibilities:

* Being organized SAVES TIME

Think of all the time you'll save (or get back) not having to look for lost or missing items.
   
* Being organized SAVES MONEY

Consider all the money you could save by reducing late fees and eliminating the need to replace things you could not find or did not realize you already had.  With new organizing skills, you might eventually be able to save money by planning ahead to take advantage of special offers and sales.

* Being organized REDUCES STRESS & ANXIETY

Being organized produces a sense of peace and calm by having a certain amount of control over your environment as well as being prepared for what is to come.

* Being organized IMPROVES RELATIONSHIPS

 Disorganization can be very isolating and can cause a great amount of guilt and shame.
Removing clutter will not only reduce stress or strain for others in your life that share your home, it will also allow you to be more open to socializing and welcoming outsiders in your home.  You'll also likely feel more willing to socialize outside the home whithout feeling guilty of what you're avoiding at home. 

* Being organized SPEEDS CLEANING / COOKING (and any other routine task)

Having all your tools and utencils organized and easy to find will help you be much more efficient and get the job done in no time!

* Being organized IMPROVES PRODUCTIVITY

The more you are able to get done means that there will be plenty more time for FUN!

* Being organized IMPROVES CONFIDENCE & SELF ESTEEM

The success you feel of meeting your organizing goals will empower you to strive to other higher heights in life.

* Being organized IMPROVES FOCUS

A cluttered environment eventually leads to a cluttered, scattered and distracted mindset.


* Being organized IMPROVES ABILITY TO RELAX

Clutter represents multitudes of tasks yet to be accomplished and decisions yet to be made.  It's hard to relax when your surroundings are constantly reminding you all you have left to do.

* Being organized PROMOTES A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

When you're organized, you are much more likely to plan meals ahead of time, resulting in healthy eating choices.  You'll also have more time to dedicate, plan for, and carry out exercise and fitness routines.

* Being organized CAUSES YOU TO BE A POSITIVE INFLUENCE ON OTHERS

When you are not distracted by clutter, you'll find it easier to focus on the needs and interests of others (and maybe they just might be inspired / motivated by your success and learn from your example toward getting organized too!)

* Being organized HELPS YOU TO LOVE YOUR HOME

There is usually a large investment that goes toward living in your home. Honor that investment with creating a lovely environment in which to live, work, and play.  If we're really honest, we probably all want our homes to be an outward reflection of what we value and a space to live out what we enjoy.  The bottom line is, clutter isn't pretty.  The simple act of removing excess clutter will help you to feel much happier and peaceful in your home.

Perhaps you're currently feeling completely overwhelmed by your clutter & mounting personal organizing goals?? 

Maybe having an organizing buddy, cheerleader and coach would help to achieve the success you need and deserve, to allow you to live a more peaceful life you LOVE with more time and energy to participate in activities and hobbies you enjoy! {guilt free}
