Getting started on being organized, like many people are at the start of a new year, has a lot to do with your brain.  I have always had the slogan “Think Organized, BE Organized”  Our brains are powerful, and putting them to work can help us get started off on the RIGHT foot in our organization journey!  If you just say to yourself “I want to be more organized this year”  I promise you, it’s not going to happen.  You need to come up with a plan that can be executed.  The first step in that plan is to UNDERSTAND your disorganization.

So grab a pen and a piece of paper, or your day planner, or my particular organizer of choice, my tablet, and complete the following sentences…

  • The main reason I am disorganized is….
  • The top three things that keep me from getting organized are…
  • The items are the biggest contributors to clutter in my house are…
  • Clutter makes me feel…
  • I could be more organized if only…
  • I want to get more organized because…
  • If I was organized I could…

One you finish these sentences, it should give you a good idea as to where your are going “wrong” with trying to get organized, and you will be able to visualize your new more organized self!
