Having worked as a professional organizer, this question comes up quite a bit. Sometimes people think it is unnecessary, impossible or even undesireable.
I often advise taking on a small organization project and pay attention to how it feels…what improves…is it access? Is it saving time? Those are the “pay-offs” …not some ideal of perfection you see in a magazine. That ideal is a trick of the camera…real people don’t live like that. Decide what improves the quality of your life by paying attention to the benefits to you when you tackle the job…and the rewards then become your personal reward…much more likely to be long lasting.
