There's a book out called something like "Eat that Frog!
This means do the hardest first or the task you have been putting off first. For some people that might be cleaning the closet, reconciling paperwork, calling a prospect back, or simply writing the next blog. There is writer's block. Is there blogging block? If so, then the blog is your "frog" Do the blog first. Eat that Frog. Blog It and eat that frog!
I help people prepare homes for sale and am a little bit of an expert of tasks that become frogs in the preparation of the home.
Decluttering is a big Frog that can be overwhelming if not approached with some planning. If you are like me you have a lot of stuff. On top of my real personal stuff, I have staging decor, (the nicer stuff)
I have a 2 car detached garage full of stuff. I have had shelves built on all three sides o the back and walls of the garage. My clutter Frog right now is a very expensive and pretty wall unit (Belgian Oak) that is taking up one quarter of the useable space of my garage. It is time for the wall unit to go! Hard to say, but did I saying eating a frog was easy?
When decluttering, there are many options:
1) Sell some of it,
2) Give some of it away.
3) Throw it away. If it is not really trash, place it on the curb with a "FREE" sign on it.
4) Pack it up early and store it! You are moving anyway. Pack it up early. Get temporary storage off site.
5) Hire temporary storage onsite. As an accredited staging professional, I can get you a 10 percent discount on the PODS storage units.
6) Designate an area of one's home for temporary storage of packed boxes.
How did I know that decluttering was your frog? EZ, it is a common frog for many people particularly in preparing a home for sale.
Whatever your frog, eating the frog first is a good idea and is extremely motivating to continue.
