Don’t Start with Paper!

When you start to organize any space, don’t start with paper (unless it’s the only organizing problem you have)!!!

Psychologically it’s important to make visible, tangible progress with your organizing efforts very quickly. If you don’t, you’ll quit!

Look at a flat piece of paper. How long will it take you to see results when you deal with paper piece by piece? A LONG TIME!

“It’s distracting!” you say. Yes, it is. So, scoop up the loose paper. Put it in a bag or box and put it to the side to tackle AFTER you’ve organized everything else. Once everything else is organized you’ll find that it’s much easier to face the paper.
