Clear the Clutter – Eliminate Chaos

Clock on Files

It’s so easy to let it get out of hand; there’s so much to do.  We’d rather do anything than get organized, promising ourselves we’ll get to it — someday. But that day never comes, and before long we’re sitting in a heap of clutter — This is something I call Pile Crisis Syndrome©



Here’s how it happens (please excuse my direct approach:)



I don’t have enough time. I’m too busy. You’re not making enough time.
There’s nowhere to put anything. There’s a home for everything.
I’ll do it later (intentions). It’s our actions, not our intentions, that matter.
I don’t know how to organize. You can learn.

Clutter follows us into our cars, jobs, closets, desks, our relationships and every other area of our life.  It undermines our positive energy and causes stress that permeates our affairs from top to bottom.

We look around and see the mess — the piles of paper, clothing, disarray — and feel overwhelming anxiety, fear and frustration. What do these feelings create?  In most cases, denial, indecision and paralysis.

In addition, some of us have the challenge of living with limited space. We’re out of closet, desk, drawer and cabinet space and square footage, so the piles start growing everywhere.

It’s a common problem but often, quite solvable.

There are actions we can take to bring balance and serenity into our environment. Practice and patience is the mantra. Just as we manifest chaos, we can manifest order. What we think is what we are. All that’s required is a change of attitude and a little discipline, and you too can have the confidence to clear the clutter and make space for a more productive environment.

Here’s the caveat:  If you don’t have a file cabinet, please do yourself a favor and get one — a good one, don’t compromise. It’s one of the best investments you’ll ever make.  Get one that’s well-built and has good drawer glides. Try them out and find one that feels good to you.

And remember, getting organized is a continual process. If you make it part of your daily routine, you’ll soon feel a sense of relief. Take it seriously, and before long both your life and your mind will no longer be cluttered.  Give yourself the lifestyle you deserve.
