How you think about your home and your life matters as much as what you are doing. Your attitude affects what you are doing and how you are doing it more than you realize.

That’s why we must organize our attitudes.


Organization is more like laundry and dishes than like a craft project: It is never complete. It is like swimming. You are either treading water or slowly sinking; progress is getting yourself back to the surface before you drown, not arriving at a destination. However, treading water at least becomes easier the longer you do it.

You get stronger as you practice.

At first it takes concentration and focus and energy simply to stay afloat, but eventually you get into better shape and can breathe evenly again. However, you never get so good at it that you can stop. Stop, and gravity and entropy will immediately begin pulling you down again.

So jump in, ready to get fit and stay fit, knowing you can make it to the surface now and again, over and over. Feeling like you’re about to sink is not the same as failing; it’s just part of life’s reality. Times for drowning will always come, but so will the time to rise to the surface once more.

If you feel like you’re drowning, start not by decluttering a closet, but by decluttering your head. Try a brain dump and claim some clarity and peace. I’ll show you how with my free guide, delivered right away:
