The Clutter Trap You Keep Falling For

August 9th, 2016





Hi there, I’m Carmen Coker, professional organizer and creator of The Clutter Cleanse®, and I’m here today with a little inspiration to get you moving toward your organizing goals, whatever they may be.

“Life is not about expecting, hoping, and wishing; it’s about doing, being, and becoming.

“It’s about the choices you’ve just made, and the ones you’re about to make – today.

“It’s about what you’re gonna do after you finish [watching] this.”

This is a quote by Mike Dooley. Now, you may not know the name Mike Dooley, but he created the Adventurers Club to celebrate the adventures of life. His daily musings have been turned into calendars, greeting cards, and books – so there’s a good chance you may have unknowingly been inspired by him and not even realize it!

This quote is one of my favorites because it applies to absolutely anything in life you want to achieve.

Want to lose weight? It’s not about hoping for a 10-pound drop; it’s about doing the things necessary to make the 10-pound drop happen.

Want a promotion? It’s not about expecting good fortune to come your way; it’s about being in the success mindset and checking off the required milestones for eligibility.

So let me ask you: Do you want to get organized? Find time? Simplify life?

Then it’s not about wishing the clutter off the floor and out of your life, although this is the untruth we often believe and accept, whether intentionally or not.

You tell yourself: One day, I’ll get around to it. One day, I’ll organize this. One day, I’ll simplify that. But, what happens? One day becomes never.

Getting organized, finding time, and simplifying life is about becoming organized in your thoughts, choices, and actions.

Which brings us back to Mike Dooley’s quote. It’s about what you’re gonna do right now.
