Here’s the thing with organizing……… You’re never finished.
That could be incredibly discouraging, but don’t let it be. It’s freeing.
Any step you take toward making your days more orderly is a step in the right direction. You can’t be wrong. Come up with a solution and try it out. The reality of life is that no matter how a perfect a solution, it will not always be perfect. Our needs, habits, schedules, and families change every day, and our systems for dealing with all of this needs to change with it in order to remain effective.
Creating something that worked at one time, but no longer does, does not mean that you failed. It means you live in the real world.
It’s a lot less pressure to approach a project with the mindset of making it work for you for now. Adding a degree of permanence can easily become one more detractor to making the changes that you need.
Start this week. Pick one project and ask yourself this question, “What do I need this space to do for me next week?” Whatever you decide that purpose is, that is your end goal. More often than not, you’ll find that the solution lasts for longer than you may have initially thought.
