You Need to Start Somewhere

Start Somewhere:  You want to get started, but where do you start?  Start somewhere, anywhere.  Just pick a spot and start.

You’ve gone through Step #1 Start-Here. You’ve read Step #2 Organized-Mindset. You’ve read and applied Step #3 Questions To Ask Yourself.  Now what??

This is Step #4. Start somewhere.

It's time to make that commitment to begin. I know you can do it. I'm here to help.

Let's begin!

Simplifying your life and getting organized can feel like an enormous topic. I know how you feel.

Please realize:

  • You can't do it all at once, so don't even try. You'll drive yourself crazy (and that's not where we want to go).
  • The trick, especially in the beginning, is not to feel over-whelmed

But, you might ask: "Where do I begin?"

Start somewhere.

  • Begin by picking an area
  • Only one area that you would like to begin with.

"What do I pick?" Good question!

Start Somewhere 3

You might want to ask yourself this question: "What area is bothering me the most?"

  • Is it too much mail (email, junk mail or snail mail)?" Begin with that area.
  • Is it bills and files? Begin with that area.
  • Is it family photos or favorite family recipes?" Begin with that area.
  • Is it lack closet space? Begin with that area.
  • Is it too many magazines? Begin with that area.

This is the process to use when you need to know where to begin.

Remember what I said on the Start Here page about the words organizing and organic coming from the same root word? That's because this is a PROCESS something that you will need to do in more than one area.

Later on, you might even find something you organized before can be done differently or that better suits you. That's OK!

Everybody likes a second chance!

Does this mean that you will spend all your time organizing?

Absolutely not!!

If you want to simplify your life, what would be the point of that?

Realize this will take time. How much? The answer is different for everyone, but it's safe to say that the less stuff you have, the less time it will take to get organized.

Right now, the best thing you can do is to start somewhere.

But before you jump over to the project areas for tips, tricks and helpful hints, remember. . .

  • Start somewhere,
  • Pick only one thing,
  • Don't over think or you'll get over-whelmed,
  • Remember the K-I-S-S method (keep it simply simple),
  • Determine the level of detail you, and those living with you, need,
  • Read the article on Basic Principles,
  • Read the article on Other Things To Consider,
  • Read the article on Last Things Before You Begin,
  • Then pick the next area that bothers you the most and begin again!

Before long, you'll have your life back.
