A Class On Procrastination

Is procrastination getting the best of you? 

In the words of Brendon Burchard (the world’s leading productivity coach):

“Procrastination basically means you are not doing what you know you need to do when you know you need to do it. It’s putting things off because in the short term, it’s easier, it’s more comfortable and it’s more certain.”

The truth of the matter is, we all procrastinate.  We do it because at times it feels more pleasurable to be distracted or to indulge ourselves in doing something else, than it is to sit down and do the actual work to create the outputs that matter when they are needed.

Personally, when I start to procrastinate it’s usually a sign that I’m feeling overwhelmed and I need a break.  Sometimes that’s easier said than done though.  That’s when I have to give myself permission to walk away for a period of time and find something as a substitute to recharge myself.

But what about when procrastination feels as if it’s getting the best of you and you’re feeling stuck –  then what? 

Well, I don’t think it’s a good idea to bite off more than you can handle by trying to figure out how you can conquer procrastination all at once.  But what I do think is healthy is trying to figure out a way to set yourself up to do less of it. 

Make sense?  If you agree, I’d like to invite you to a workshop that I’m hosting on-line where I’ll be showing you three ways to deal with your procrastination so you can be productive.

There Is A Way To Rest Easy

Have you ever had a nagging feeling about something that won’t go away – and when you try to dismiss it, it just seems to get worse?

Clutter is like that. The more you try and pretend it doesn’t exist, the more it grows and grows.

It may appear at first a lot to handle to confront “things” but I can honestly tell you, the only way to resolve those nagging feelings is to do just that.

I show my clients exactly how to do it in a non-threatening way that helps them overcome their fear and overwhelm.

I’m going to be talking about how to do that and so much more in a FREE conference call on Monday. You can register for the call if you’re interested.

Jen’s Story Just Might Help You

 

I’d like to introduce you to Jennifer. 

Jen is a middle aged woman, married with children, and lives in the suburbs of the USA.

From outward appearances, Jen appears to have quite a life; a nice home, stylish wardrobe and a new car.

But what most people don’t know is that Jen has a secret. A secret that she’s been keeping from her family and friends.

You see, Jen has a wee bit of a problem.  A problem that has, over time, gotten bigger.  And now, this problem is difficult to keep under wraps, so Jen is feeling anxious and not sleeping well. 

That’s when she called me and asked if I could help her. 

But the story doesn’t end there. 

Actually, the story has a very happy ending.  I’d like to share that story with you because I think it just might help shed a little light on “things.”

I’m hosting a FREE call that I’d like to invite you to.  I’ll be discussing stories like Jen’s and others.

Is Clutter Really In The Eyes Of The Beholder?

As a clutter coach who specializes in hoarding, I take heed for good reason when I hear the statement, “clutter is in the eyes of the beholder.”

The above statement references that for some there’s a level of comfort they find with their messiness and what one may consider messy another may not.

Now, if we are talking about households that periodically get out of order, or people who are not so organized but their disorder doesn’t interfere with the quality of their life, then yes, the statement carries weight.  Different people are comfortable with different degrees of  clutter.

How one chooses to live their life is their business, one may say, and although I would tend to agree, I would also have to argue that this is true up until a point as it pertains to clutter.  I say this because excessive clutter does interfere with the quality of one’s life and loved ones.

Clutter can be dangerous and a hazard for tripping and falling.  Mold and toxins grow beneath and on the clutter and are released into the air that cause breathing and health problems. And clutter can prevent a person from utilizing their home in the way it is supposed to be intended, i.e., cooking in the kitchen, sleeping in the bed, bathing in the bathroom.

Now there’s a reason why people have extreme clutter and that goes into whether or not they are hoarding their stuff or there are other reasons behind it.  But studies do show that hoarding affects up to 6 percent of the population or 19 million Americans.

To see if any red flags are raised for you, ask yourself questions like these:

  • Do you buy many of the same things over time, because you can’t find what you already have?
  • Does your stuff prevent you from having people over?
  • Are you late paying bills because you can’t find your bills?
  • Does someone complain about your stuff? Does it cause family fights?
  • Are you able to utilize your rooms they way they are designed to be used for cooking, sleeping, bathing?
  • Are there narrow “goat trails” in your house to walk through between tall mounds of stuff?
  • Are you experiencing financial hardship due to excessive shopping?
  • Has your hobby of collecting turned into an obsession of acquiring?

People often tell me that after they de-clutter (which can include their space, desk, office, home, etc.) it comes back. What I tell them is that “it” isn’t the problem – your habits are. So if your clutter is returning you need to figure out what you’re doing that’s causing the clutter to begin with.

If you’re questioning whether or not your “clutter is in the eyes of the beholder” or something more, I would like to invite you to a conference call on Monday, July 22, 2019 at 7:30 pm et.  It’s absolutely FREE and will be a very relaxed discussion where you can ask me anything you’d like.

The Latest Organizing Trend

I am often asked what I think of the latest organizing craze, especially about paring down and creating makeovers.

For me personally, organizing has always been in trend.  I’ve been helping people for over 20 plus years de-clutter and design new living spaces.

But, lately it appears more women are catching on that getting organized is not just a one time activity.  Rather it’s a lifestyle one adopts that embraces the body, mind and environment.

This makes me very happy and excited because when one understands this, it’s easier to get off the merry-go-round of clutter and break the cycle a lot easier.

The fact is, living an organized life is a choice. You become more consciously aware of what’s truly important and what makes you happy, rather than focusing on external things to fulfill you.

If you’re interested, I’d love to talk to you personally and show you how to create such a lifestyle.  It would be a very relaxed call and you can ask me anything you’d like.  You can schedule your call at your convenience by clicking HERE!

I look forward to our call together!

There’s No Magic To Getting Organized But There Is A Method

When it comes to getting organized, most people wait until they “feel” they have a really good reason to take action.  For example, the holiday season or a special occasion.

This is not necessarily the best time to start de-cluttering and creating order in your home, however.

The reason I say this is because usually the “urgency” of wanting to do something is not always the best way.  It takes time to get organized – the right way, that is.

Disorganization and clutter usually doesn’t occur over night.  So to expect to create an organized environment swiftly is just adding additional pressure on yourself.

Just like with anything else in life that you want to be successful at, there is a system to follow.  Getting organized is no exception.

There’s a reason why my clients are able to live clutter-free.  It’s not magic.  But there is a method I teach them. 

If you’d like to learn how to reduce your stress, overcome your anxiety and create a living space that reflects the essence of “who you are” then my Mindfulness Coaching Program just might be the answer to your clutter problems.

I’d love the opportunity to explain the program to you and see if it’s a proper fit.  You can find out everything you need by scheduling a call with me HERE.

You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.  Talk to you soon!
