One of the reasons many of us get overwhelmed is the sheer volume of stuff that surrounds us.
It has been said that the average person spends up to one hour a day looking for things.
That adds up to 6-8 weeks out of every year – just looking for stuff!
I don’t know about you, but I can tolerate a certain amount of clutter and disorder. But sometimes that clutter and disorder gets out of hand!
One piece of paper out of place doesn’t seem so bad, but when that one piece calls hundreds of his little friends, and they call their friends, all of a sudden (it seems) your tidy pile is a huge cascade.
Trust me, it doesn’t happen over night.
When it does happen, get help.
Tackle one pile at a time.
Remember, it didn’t happen overnight, and it won’t be resolved overnight.
But, if you take on a bit at a time you will get it done.
And then you will discover you have more energy for what really matters to you.
