Restoring Your Momentum to Get Organized
Four tips to get back on track
When it comes to getting organized, one of the biggest mistakes is to continue to do something because that’s the way you’ve always done it. This isn’t the case when you’ve followed numerous checklists and read every home improvement magazine, yet nothing worked. After weeks or months go by, we’re looking at unfinished projects.
New products, lifestyle changes and internal growth are some of the factors that we face to restore our momentum to get organized. Here are four ways to get back on track.
Embrace who you are and what works for you.
Social media is a haven for beautifully organized homes at your fingertips. The question that we can ask ourselves is, “Are those pictures a true representation of my lifestyle?” Our momentum quickly turns into paralysis when we’re busy looking to see if the grass is greener on the other side. When we embrace our uniqueness, it increases our self-confidence. Then we are able to express who we are and create the necessary systems and structure to stay organized.
Complete a life assessment.
Our lives are always evolving. The things that we know how to do are changing; however, the basic principles of change have not. This gives you the ideal opportunity to do some introspection. How do you feel about life right now? What has changed in the past six months? Have you moved forward from your previous life challenges? Has your schedule changed? How do you want your life to look like in the next year?
Organizing is a journey, not a destination. We must settle within ourselves that becoming an organized woman takes time. That means being patient with ourselves. There are external and internal factors, like mindset, living space and personal growth that one must overcome in order to create a firm foundation to build an organized lifestyle and home.
Partake in retail therapy.
Retail therapy can restore your vision. Shopping is a form of visualization, and it prepares you to act on the things that you desire. If it’s new products or décor that you need to get your drive back, partake in some retail therapy.
Once you’ve put the above tips into action, you can then pinpoint where you are and what steps you need to take to restore your momentum.
