Just about everyone “makes” at least one New Year’s Resolution. One of the most popular Resolutions is to Get Organized. Every year we have the best of intentions that This Year will be The year that it Really happens! Really…cross your fingers, hope to die! You Will make the necessary changes and do whatever it takes, Right? And you are willing and ready to jump in with both feet! You’ll even write it all down, put it on our calendar and make promises to yourself that this IS the year.
The truth is that keeping a New Year Resolution takes more than all of this. You must realize not just what you want to change, but Why you want to change. When you look at your space, office, paperwork or life, does it just drive you nuts? What are you willing to do – besides throwing in the towel and saying, I just can’t do it?
You may consciously be self-sabotaging yourself , which is the reason that it hasn’t changed….Yet! Ask yourself this question – If my space was organized what would it look like? Close your eyes and visualize your space neat, tidy, organized and filed. Picture yourself sitting at your desk writing contracts, filling orders, talking with clients, paying your bills and smiling at the increase in your bank account.
What I know is that nothing will change until something changes. In other words, until you take specific and methodical action to Keep Your Resolutions, they won’t happen and you will stay in the same rut in 2012. And, no matter what plans your plans include and how detailed they are, it takes dedication and a change in your attitude to make it happen
