Do you ever take the time to have a go at taking stock of things in your life? Sometimes, however organised we are, things can overwhelm us, and taking stock is whats needed to get back to a sense of normality as quickly as possible.
Are you paranoid that your home is worse than anyone else? Do you ask yourself why it seems that yours is the only home that nothing has a place, or if it does have one, noone puts it there? Are you afraid to have guests over for fear of what they think? You’re not alone
Its all very well and good getting busy and becoming more organised, but if you don’t stop every once in a while to actually see how far you’ve come, then you may be doing yourself a dis-service.
The consequences of not tracking your progress could be that you simply get a little demotivated and stop for a while, worse still you stop for good, or you may even suffer from burn out as you can’t see that you have tried to do too much too quickly – and who wants any of those?
The quest for the perfectly organised home and life can take over everything – leaving you with more TO DO and less time than ever if you’re not careful.
This is NOT the goal!
Hopefully when reading this site you’ll see that I advocate getting as organised as YOU need to – everyones goals are different, but keeping track of those goals can help you to not become too overwhelmed – and simply improve your existing life.
Organising needs to be at the right level for you.
Rewarding yourself for getting organised is one of the things that should help to make the organising itself a lot more fun and easier to complete. Heres my take on what Mary Poppins had to say that inspired me a little!
if your holiday feels more like an extra relaxing extension of your current day to day life, CONGRATULATIONS! You have organised your life so that its balanced, rewarding and keeps you motivated.
If not, why not really look at your goals and priorities a little closer, and make it a goal to achieve the life that you have always wanted EVERY DAY!
