Now that we’ve talked about the reasons you may be struggling to stay organized (and if you missed it, take a look here), let’s talk about the secret to getting rid of clutter for good.
Take a moment and think about the words you use to talk about organizing.
If you’re like most disorganized people you say, “I need to get organized.”

Don’t feel bad. Most disorganized people do the exact same thing.
That’s why in my Organized for Life program, I stress staying organized, as well as getting organized. Because unless you know how to stay organized, you’re destined to a life of getting rid of clutter only to have it pile up again.
I think you deserve better than that, don’t you?
