When my clients ask for help, they are facing different struggles, but all share the same problem. They are losing time, things, money. Their routine is disrupted, and every day is a different hassle. From their closets to their kitchen and out the door through the garage, these clients are overwhelmed with the amount of stuff to get done. Mental notes keep them awake at night.
I saw myself in their shoes few months ago, when I came to the realization that being a professional organizer does not mean I know how to organize my business. I thought it wouldn’t be that hard. I had to learn few things, that was all. Well, not quite. I lost time, money and few files. Being humble about my lack of business administration knowledge, I hired a team of experts.
Right off the bat, they were able to point me in the right direction, introduced me to tools to improve my productivity and created an amazing structure of support. They cut through my mental maze, where all the to do notes where flying in chaos and cleared the path to serious learning. And they make it look so easy!
The fact is, we all need specific structures in place to perform our best. Depending on the problem, solution can be as simple as a key holder by the entrance, a basic paper filing system or few organizing supplies that will maximize the kitchen cabinet space. Other complex structures might require custom evaluation and planning – like a full house reset and my business.
Look around. Do you feel you have a structure of support in place? What needs to change? What solution would benefit you the most? Those are powerful questions. Be curious and the answers will teach you a lot about self care and wellbeing.
