“The most effective way to do it, is to do it.” Amelia Earhart
Long before Nike trademarked the phrase, Amelia knew what “just do it” truly meant.
The only way to get something done is to actually do it, which sounds simple enough, right?
Everyone has the ability to be a “do-er”. Looking back at major moments of success in your life, you will see that you have already accomplished some impressive things.
When it comes to getting organized, though, that inner do-er gets hung up or frozen, and suddenly you find yourself pacing back and forth or circling a pile of stuff unable to take action.
As my friend and mentor Mark LeBlanc says, “everyone can take one more step.”
Don’t fool yourself into thinking that buying a bunch of containers and storing everything is the same as letting go of the stuff you don’t need, use, or have room for.
Every single piece of clutter you have lying around is a very real physical obstacle between you and happiness.
No amount of decorative tubs or bins or boxes will cure your stuff problem. In fact, those containers just became MORE stuff!
The most important tool you need to accomplish your organizational goals is already right inside you—willingness.
So reset your thinking.
Do you want to get organized? Do you want to set yourself free from clutter, disorganization, and wasted time for good?
Then do it. Get out of your head and into action. Take one step forward and that easily, you are on your way.
