Everything takes a simple decision. Either we do or don’t. Either we will or won’t.
Simple, right. Or is it?
When it comes to our clutter it all boils down to the decision we choose to make or not make. We can make the decision to put our things back where they belong. We can make the decision to take 15 minutes each day decluttering one area of our home. Or we can just decide not to start or do something else that won’t get us closer to our goal. Simple.
No matter how hard it may be to hear, it is a simple decision and that decision starts with YOU. You can decide right now to start somewhere. Anywhere. But just start.
Simple decision, but big reward.
Recently reading the book “The Power of Perseverance” by Joseph M. Ripley, Sr. I read a statement that said “Make up your mind to move forward before you see it.” Reading that statement I thought about how that applies to getting organized. Most people are paralyzed to move because they can’t see the end. They can’t envision the space uncluttered.
But you don’t have to see the end before you get started. The important thing is to get started. If you make up your mind to start and press on you will eventually accomplish what you set out to do.
I want you to go into this new year with a sense of determination and perseverance to finally get organized. Start where you are and don’t let anything deter you from finishing what you start.
