The Key to Success in Getting and Staying Organized is...DISCIPLINE

As a Professional Organizer providing home organizing services and coaching, there are several quotes that I like to refer to when working alongside my clients.  They serve as helpful guideposts through our organizing journey....

I've discussed the importance of defining your personal MOTIVATION to get your organizing motor running...

"MOTIVATION is what gets you started, HABIT keeps you going."  
~ Jim Rohn ~

  (see "Motivations for Organization" for more) 

I've also identified that the path to 'HOW' to achieve the goal of getting organized appears through a series of SYTEMS, ROUTINES, and HABITS.

"We are what we reapeatedly do.  Excellence, therfore, is not an act, but a habit."
~ Aristotle ~

However, the biggest key to success in achieving and maintaining organization in your home and lifestyle comes down to ...


To have self - discipline is to TRAIN oneself to do something in a controlled and habitiual way.

Achieving any goal in life is not always an easy or inspiring process.

It's choice, after choice, after choice.....after choice, of DO-ing what you want MOST over what you want now...

It's deciding to DO what NEEDS to be done over what you might FEEL like doing...

It's realizing that even the smallest steps forward are what's most important. And, understanding that progress a little at a time is more likely to add up to LASTING change rather than big dramatic steps ever will.

Repeated ACTS of disciplined CHOICES lead to HABITS that will produce the fruits of an organized and peaceful life that you've been craving.

Perhaps you're currently feeling completely overwhelmed by clutter & mounting personal organizing goals??  Or, maybe there is a space or two in your home that simply needs a fresh set of objective eyes to bring it to it's fullest organized potential?

Maybe having an organizing buddy, cheerleader and coach that could encourage you with one-on-one hands on support 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 fully and freely participate in activities and interests you enjoy!
