Most people give up before they begin because organizing their space feels and looks like such a huge job. This is the wrong way to go about getting — and staying — organized. The trick is to take the overwhelming feeling out of the situation. Do that by focusing on taking one step at a time:.
You do not need to start and finish an organizing project on the same day. But the more you build up the skills that you use when you organize your life, the easier it will be to maintain a happy, healthy life.
Is it your health, happiness, family, work, friends? A lot of people fear that they will make a mistake and throw something out that they will need desperately. Fear only lets you continue making bad decisions for yourself. Life is hard enough without you purposely making it harder for yourself. So start the organizing process by choosing to make the easy decisions first.
These skills will enable you to make better decisions for your life now and in the future. This can be a tiring process. There are a lot of decisions to make and it can feel overwhelming without taking a few breaks in between. Why not think about possibly finding some lost treasures, or even how you might end up making some money getting rid of unwanted items? Make the process of organizing easy rather than overwhelming by keeping similar items together. Notice these patterns and quirks and make a note of them. This is your natural path through your home, and this is what all of the other organizing and tidying advice is asking you to fight.
Instead, put your laundry basket there, and put the chair somewhere else. That means no false starts when you try to put things in the old spot and have to switch to the new, no regression back to the old over time, and no worst-of-both-worlds event where some of your dirty clothes are in one place and some in the other. You can take this approach to anything else in your life.
Maybe you have a spice cabinet that spices never seem to find their way back into after you use them. Can you never seem to find that one important paper — like your passport — when you need it? If this approach is helping you, you can get even more mileage out of it by using it backward. Your natural path is always there, and just as trying to force it to be somewhere else is never easy, interrupting it takes you off autopilot and gives you the option to do something different. It trusts you to be already doing what works for you and fits within your habits and your psychology.
You can make it better through something as small as keeping the bin where you put spent toilet paper tubes next to the dispenser. We often hear that it takes more effort to be messy than to be organized, and by thinking about organization this way, we can finally make that true.
