Do you think that you can’t start on your clutter and chaos when you have hours to dedicate to the project? Does this make you feel so overwhelmed that you just put it off indefinitely? I can certainly relate!
The perception to most is that we need to get our entire life in order or give a project our full attention to make a difference. I believe that is true but I also encourage you to break your project into bite size pieces.
Set a time for 15 minutes. Commit to working on ONE area for the entire time. It could be your pantry, scrapbook room or kitchen. Once the timer goes off, step back and appreciate the progress you made. If you want to continue, go right ahead. If you are out of time, smile and move on to the next task on your to-do list.
Another step can be to pick one project a day or week. Focus your attention on that area ONLY. You can use 10 minutes here, 10 minutes there to work on your project. At the end of the week, step back and take notice of the positive progress you have made.
Although we strive for perfection when decluttering and controlling our chaos, it is a unobtainable feat. We should strive for positive progress and appreciate all the steps we taken to make our life tranquil and chaos free.
If you are looking for your first step in starting to a chaos free life, we need to talk. Ask about the Mother’s Day special! I’m off to set the timer for 10 minutes and organize my linens… Wish me luck and share what you are doing to be chaos free.
