One complaint that I sometimes hear from my clients is that it takes too long to get organized. It is a slow process indeed, especially when it involves emotions and memories, but it doesn’t take too long compared to the time it took to accumulate all the stuff inside one place.
When we watch TV shows or see before and after pictures in magazines it looks like magic, but behind the scenes the reality is filled with hard work and many, many hours of hands-on organizing. Sometimes a professional organizer appears during 8 minutes in a TV show, but she worked with her team up to 80 hours on site.
My recommendation is: – Don’t lose your motivation. Think of it as a diet, and think of how the final results are going to benefit your life. Step by step things will get into place, and your place is going to be a happier one. Trust me!
