I want to get organized but I don’t know where to start!
It plays over and over in your mind like a broken record. You know you have to get things together but you just don’t know how to begin. You know what you want to accomplish but you can’t seem to get going.
Some people can draw out an intricate plan, or make a list of steps and stick to it. Some people are naturally organized and just do well at maintaining it. Then there are people that over-think, overreact, and worry too much about the little details. I believe that most of the people that ask where to start fall into this category. If you are one of these people, the answer I have for you is somewhere.
Start with a drawer or a shelf, whatever it is just start. If you are not naturally a planner and you are trying to get things just right in your mind before you start, the planning process could scare you into doing nothing. Instead just clear your mind and tackle a drawer. Once you see how easy that was then you can move on to another, then another. Take baby steps and don’t overwhelm yourself by looking at the whole picture. Instead, just do something. Start small, finish big!
