Think about it. If you don’t make a decision about what to keep, where to put things or when to ask for help, you’re not going to be organized.
I’d like to share a client story with you about decisions. My lovely client worked with me remotely, via the phone.
Let’s call this client Laverne.
Laverne had some intense health issues that resulted in clutter and piles of dirty dishes. I suggested she spend 10 minutes each day washing dishes until she was caught up. We can do anything for 10 minutes, right?
During our next phone coaching session I asked Laverne about her dishes and her progress. She said, “Jill, they are gone!” I told Laverne I was happy for her and asked how she did it. Her response……“I threw them out!”
I didn’t know what to say at first. This was certainly an unconventional decision! But you know what?
The beautiful thing about her decision is the fact that she made a decision and moved on. No guilt, only freedom. She felt wonderful about her clean kitchen. Laverne decided to keep it simple and never face a pile of dirty dishes again. She purchased a few dishes and eating utensils from a thrift store. Her pots and pans were washed and put away.
This solution isn’t for everyone but bottom line: She made a decision and moved on.
What decision will YOU make today to eliminate clutter? Big or little, leave it in the comments.
