Tis that slow season for many of us, right? Between stuffed turkey, mistletoe and champagne toasts, there’s not too much more that you want to focus on other than spending time with family and friends. But with the New Year fast approaching, I wanted to remind you that now’s the time to start aligning yourself with your future self and goals. Whether you make New Year Resolutions or not, there’s never a wrong time to assess your current self, what you did right this year, what you did wrong and what you hope to do moving forward. Cheers to the new you!
Today is Saturday around 10:30 am and I’m so excited to start my new blog. Have no idea what I’ll write about though! It’s been years since I’ve blogged but I always enjoy it. Here, I’ll post pictures of some of the day’s work...my thoughts....random thoughts...and it’s here that you’ll realize I’m probably not all the way sane. But who is, right?
What I do know is that I enjoy helping people to get their lives organized. I remember when I first made the connection between organizing and achieving goals. I was a freshman at duPont Manual (Go Rams) and had to take a math class - I can’t even remember the exact name - that’s how bad I was in the class.
I felt so alone in the class - it seemed like everyone else knew the material, raised their hands to answer questions. Nothing I did seemed to work. I sat in the front row, stayed for tutoring. Nothing helped. So one night I sat at home, looking at this homework. And I reasoned with myself. There had to be an answer...a solution...and how could I break down parts, pieces, rewind, step back and look at the entire picture to see how things appeared then.
So I did that. Besides, if I didn’t know the material, at least I would organize my notes, make index cards and become the most organized student in that class. Maybe the teacher would take pity on me, become impressed, and give me some kind of passing grade for effort.
But something else happened actually. Once I broke things down, took my time to comprehend, tackled the subject piece by piece, I actually started to understand it better! What do you know!?
When you declutter and organize, amazing doors open up for you. What areas of your life, either mentally or physically, could you clean up and declutter? I’d love to hear in the comments below.
I’m Shaun - a writer, an organizer, a virtual assistant and what my friends would say , an all-around good person. I hope you join me for insight into my world. I’ll try not to bore you too much! I love receiving mail: email@example.com and feel free to reach out if you ever need organizing, decluttering or cleaning support. I may not have all the answers but I’ll always do my best.
