By It's All About You: A Personalized Approach to Achieving Your Organizing Goals, Uncategorized

As we are approaching July 4th, I have been thinking of our freedoms. I think of the freedoms given to us in America as the freedom of speech, religion, press, assembly, and the right to petition. Together these freedoms make us in the USA one of the freest countries in the world. There is another freedom we have. It is personal freedom. I also think that we don’t allow ourselves to become free and be the best that we can be. Let’s look at our personal freedoms. Personal freedom allows us to live our lives on our own terms and…

Count Your Blessings

By It's All About You: A Personalized Approach to Achieving Your Organizing Goals

When I was a child, my mother always used to say ‘count your blessings’. I didn’t know exactly what she meant. Now as an adult, I find myself regularly counting my blessings. There are so many things for which to be thankful. Since the Thanksgiving celebration in the United States falls in November, we often think more directly about giving thanks during this month. In fact, I am just finishing up 30 days of thankfulness. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you know that I have been posting one thing every day for which I am thankful. Even…

Dealing With Holiday Celebrations and Traditions

By It's All About You: A Personalized Approach to Achieving Your Organizing Goals

This time of year, there are many holiday celebrations. Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Chanukah is right behind that. Then comes Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. These holidays are loaded with family traditions. Family traditions form memories that last forever and are passed down generation to generation. The traditions give us a sense of belonging.

By It's All About You: A Personalized Approach to Achieving Your Organizing Goals

Diane Quintana and I were talking about the most useful holiday gifts for people who are disorganized the other day as no one wants to add clutter to a home that is already somewhat filled up.   That brought me to thinking of organizational gifts that I have received, truly loved, and used. I also thought of a couple of items that I have recently bought for myself.  We love to buy our gifts early so there is no stress. When you are buying a gift for someone who is disorganized, you want to think about the recipient’s lifestyle and consider…

How to Shift Your Focus from Yourself to Your Stuff

By It's All About You: A Personalized Approach to Achieving Your Organizing Goals

As a professional organizer, I often am on the receiving end of comments like: I’m so stupid, why did I let this happen? Or some people say: I’m a slob, I’m a packrat, I’m a collector just like my parents and things like: I’m so lazy, if I were not so lazy my house wouldn’t look this way. Can you relate? Do you call yourself out? What are the names you call yourself or the things you say to yourself? Are these things on repeat? Do these nasty phrases cycle through your mind over and over again?

5 Ground Rules for Difficult Conversations

By It's All About You: A Personalized Approach to Achieving Your Organizing Goals

We’ve all had difficult conversations with spouses or partners, colleagues at work, children, and parents. We call them difficult conversations because they are just that, difficult. It may be that we are fearful of the person’s response. We don’t want to alienate them. Sometimes we don’t know how to bring up the topic because it is sensitive, so we struggle. Other times we gloss over what we really want to say and walk away knowing we didn’t make our point. What if it could be easier with ground rules that everyone followed? Wouldn’t that be great? As a certified professional…
