Getting Organized: Diagnosing the Problem

Written by Seana Turner, PO.

Ever walk into your house, take a look around and say to yourself, “Whose house is this anyway? How in the world did things get so out of control?” If that scenario rings a bell, then relax. MANY people find themselves in this situation, often for one of three very common reasons.

First, the most universal reason that people lose control of their spaces and possession is because of a life event. This can be either from a traumatic experience (e.g. personal illness, death of a family member, loss of a job) or a joyful event (e.g. getting married, moving, starting a new job).

The Principles of Organizing

Written by Seana Turner, PO.

So you are ready to get organized – good for you! And if you’ve been reading along here at Project LIFE, you may by now have an understanding of how you got into a bit of a mess in the first place.

At about this stage it is tempting to dive in and start pitching stuff. However, if you want to be organized for life, and not just for this week, you need to first step back and understand the global principles that will enable you to live in a more intentional, structured, and clutter free way.

There are many principles when it comes to organizing, but two are of the utmost importance and can change your life if you truly embrace them.
1.  Everything you own needs a home.
2.  Stop cleaning up and instead began restoring order.
