Where to Begin if You Want to Get Better Organized, with Heather Rogers, Simply Organized
John Ray: [00:00:00] And hello again, everyone. This is John Ray with Business RadioX, and I’m here with Heather Rogers. Heather is the founder and owner of Simply Organized. Heather, my question for you is, for those that are taking the new year to turn over a new leaf and get better organized, where do they start?
Heather Rogers: [00:00:24] Hi, John. Great question. I get asked this all the time. People are very overwhelmed and they want to get a project completed, but they just don’t know how to begin or where to start that project. So, my advice is, just get started. I know that sounds very simple. But put it on your calendar, carve out some time for it, some focus time, and just start. Baby steps. One at a time. One room at a time. One space at a time. And set a timer for yourself so that you don’t get too overwhelmed with the size or the scope of a project. And just do small amounts at a time, 30 minutes to an hour until it’s completed. It doesn’t all have to happen at once.
John Ray: [00:01:35] Most people try to bite off more than they can chew and get it all done in one day. And then, they’re disappointed that they didn’t get it accomplished. So, that’s my advice, just pick one space and get started and focus on it. And you will finish it if you set it as a goal and have some focus time to spend on the project.
