Organizing Solutions’ mission is to help
people create order out of clutter and chaos.
Here are the elements of my philosophy on organization and personal
Living Deliberately: We do not have to be victims
of our own possessions and habits; rather we can have the freedom
that comes from knowing what is important to us and having our time,
tasks, written information, and possessions reflect those priorities.
Abundance: When we believe we have and will have
all we need, our fear of scarcity is lessened, allowing us to give
up that which does not enhance our lives.
Acceptance: Whether we are messy or neat is not
a reflection of our worth, nor is it a moral issue. It is a style
of living, neither good nor bad. Choosing to become more organized
is simply trying another way of living that may work better for
us, it is not about becoming a better person. Whether you have trouble
getting and staying organized, or just want to fine-tune the systems
you have, getting help does not mean you are a failure.
Awareness: Clarity is gained by becoming more
aware of the way we spend our time and organize our possessions.
Awareness is the first step in creating change in our lives.
Individuality: Each of us has a unique personality
style which influences the way we make connections in our minds.
For a plan of organization to be successful, it must be tailored
to our individual style and preferences.
Being Organized: Being organized means being able
to find what we need in what we consider a reasonable amount of
time. It means not having to spend time looking for something when
we would prefer to spend that time doing something more meaningful
or enjoyable. There is both a spatial and time element to the concept
of being well organized.
Born Organized: Each of us has different gifts.
Some people are born with a natural propensity for being organized,
while others are not. Struggling with organization is not a sign
of deficiency or ignorance.
Information: Obviously, we cannot absorb all the
information in the world. Still, we do not need to live in fear
of missing a "key" piece of information that might change
our lives forever. We can trust that what is important for us to
know will come to us when we are ready to receive it.
Re-circulation: What we are not using or enjoying
can fill a need in someone else’s life if we place it in "circulation."
What we give will return to us in various forms.
Simplicity: Simplifying our lives results in fewer
decisions to make and increased time for doing what we want.
Small steps over time create lasting improvements:
Just as disorder is not created overnight, the road to organization
is a "journey" with time needed to create new systems
and learn new habits.
Value Based Decision Making: What we choose to
own and take care of, and how we choose to spend our time, is a
reflection of what is important to us.
