Small Organizational Goals Provide Motivation Needed for BIG Jobs

If you're feeling overwhelmed at the state of your space, start SMALL. 

Don't know where to start?

Identify either the room/area where you are spending the most time, or that is the most out of order.  Decide before you begin how much time you have to devote to your work there (15 min?  30 min? an Hour?) Set a timer if you need the accountability to stay on track to the task at hand if needed.

Then, choose just ONE *small* area within that space to clear/sort at a time.

 Keep your focus small with what is right in front of you at the moment.

It can be tempting to go put something away in another area of the house when you come across it.

Instead, put out of place items in a 're-locate' box.  Replacing these out of place items will be a separate task after you've completed the organizing task at hand.

Allow the success in one area (a shelf, a drawer, or even just a corner of a room or counter) propel you toward your next goal.
