There is a saying that “the only constant is change” and it shows in everything we do. Many people lead very organized lives and are able to stay on top of paperwork and clutter until something happens in their lives that throws them out of control. Maybe it’s a death in the family, a divorce, a new baby, or a new job. Whatever the change, it alters their course and often cannot be recovered. It is this inability to move on that gives rise to piles of papers on the desk or kitchen counter, cupboards that cannot be opened because of things in them, and beds that we can no longer sit on. sleep due to all the items on top.
take a look at your life
Our charge to you is to take a deep breath and then take a hard look at your life. What are your goals for yourself and for your family? “There just isn’t enough time in the day” is something we hear a lot. Why? Is it because you are too committed? Is it because you haven’t evaluated your priorities? Is saying ‘no’ too difficult or painful? Many stay-at-home parents complain of being overwhelmed. The solution may lie in reevaluating priorities. These people stay home to be with their children. Not being on every committee the school has or being seen as a super dad/mom. Sort It Out, Inc. fully sympathizes with “stay at home” parents and they know how difficult this career is.
Sort It Out takes our hats off to working parents. They have such a daily challenge in juggling their families and careers. Their jobs take up much of their day, leaving little time for themselves or their families. Working parents in particular need to make sure they are aware of their personal and family goals so they don’t get sidetracked by things that may not be a priority. Your time is too valuable to waste.
Very small changes in your life can often make a big difference. An example might be turning off the TV at night so you can finish your work or reading some articles that you’ve been putting off and are piling up on your nightstand. Another change might be to start getting up earlier in the morning so you can exercise or read the Wall Street Journal that you never seem to have time for. Sort It Out, Inc. is interested in not only helping you organize the physical clutter in your life, but also the mental clutter. Find out for yourself and then breathe.
