It's G.O. Month!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Aim 4 Order LLC

 Did you know that January is G.O. Month?? 

Are you wondering what in the world G.O. stands for??

I'll end the suspense -

G is for GET and O is for ORGANIZED. 

If you choose to take the plunge and organize a small corner of your world, here are some tips to help you on your way:

  1. Eat a good meal before you begin (gotta have strength and no excuses to stop for a snack).
  2. Decide if music or tv will help you to focus OR distract you. Pick the one that helps you to focus.
  3. Decide if you're better off on your own or with a non-judgemental companion who will aide in your efforts and not stress you further.
  4. Think about what you can do in 15 minutes that will make a difference.
  5. Have a box to place items that need to get delivered to other parts of your home - do not make the mistake of running around to and from various rooms during the sorting and purging process. It's too easy to get distracted (you know what I mean)
  6. Have clearly labeled or color coded trash bags or boxes for TRASH, DONATE and SELL.

And as the NIKE people say, JUST DO IT.

Take 15 minutes and get started.

Take a 'before' picture so you can see your progress each time you take 15 minutes to improve the space. 

And you'll be so glad you did!

Good morning, Cindy... great tips... especially #4 and #5. I often use that 15-30 minute time block... amazing what one can get done in a small period of time when focused on it and you know there's an "end."
