Stuck in a Rut… Ever Been There Before?

Ugh. That’s about all I can say. My poor neglected blog. Life just isn’t cooperating. Have you ever been there before? Loads of good intentions, plans, and dreams? And yet you can’t seem to get anywhere with them? I’m feeling stuck lately. Mentally. Emotionally. Physically.

So, tell me… What are your favorite strategies for getting out of a rut? I’d love to hear them!

From Ordinary to Extraordinary !!

I so love this post by fellow professional organizer, Megan Spears, founder of Disorder2Order!

Here’s a little taste…
Elephant Rockface

I like to think that there is good in the ordinary. If look at this picture for example… it’s just a rock on the beach, right? If you look a little closer you might see an elephant drinking from the ocean.

Seeing potential in things that are ordinary is one of the best parts of my job. I see things that others don’t (or can’t) in themselves or their cluttered spaces. The interesting thing is that when I started my business, I had no idea that was going to be so important.

When I started my business it was scary. Really, what did I know about running a business? Was I really going to be able to make money? How was I going to balance babies and a business?

There were moments in that first year that I truly thought I had lost my mind. Now, six years later I am so thankful for my decisions and the obstacles that I have overcome. Not only do I have the best job in the world but I make a difference, and that makes me feel good.

[ real neat ]   hands-on organizing

I hired Michelle to help me reorganize my kitchen pantry. Once we got started, however, she organized a LOT more of my cabinets which desperately needed it. I couldn't believe how simple her organizing solutions were.

In the past, I had just thrown things into my cupboards, not thinking (organizing) where things should logically be! She did such a great job that I hope to have her come back to help me purge my basement—that's when I can get it scheduled into my busy calendar!

I would HIGHLY recommend Michelle to anyone who needs help to get themselves more organized. In the short time she spent with me, she helped me tremendously since she worked on the one room that I use everyday—the kitchen!

[ real neat ]   productivity power hour

I am so excited about all the suggestions that you gave me during our one hour organizing session. In fact, I started rearranging my space the next day (between clients)!

My office is really taking shape, and I no longer feel claustrophobic sitting at my desk. I am now able to get so much more accomplished during the day. With limited time, with clients coming in, completing a project was difficult. Now that my office space is arranged efficiently, I can actually find the time to complete all of my daily paperwork!

Thank you for all of your wonderful suggestions and for giving me back the enthusiasm I once had for running my business!

Michelle Deo is true to her profession. If there was ever a perfect fit for the profile of professional organizer, it is Michelle.

She came to my office and analyzed our paperwork flow, then discussed the day-to-day operations of our office with my Associate Financial Representative, and after diligently getting to know our systems, she made recommendations.

She had very good follow-through and can truly make an impact on whatever systems you operate within, whether it be home or office.

[ real neat ]   organizing party

I hosted a [ real neat ] organization seminar in my home, and I appreciated how Michelle wasn't selling an organizing system that I would use for a week before returning to my messy ways. She gave everyone at the seminar great advice about how to use materials that we have on hand to develop an organization strategy that works for us as individuals.

For my "hostess gift" Michelle re-organized my supply closet, and almost a year later I am still maintaining it! I love being able to find exactly what I'm looking for without hassle!

Michelle is obviously an experienced facilitator. I have a Master's Degree in Rhetoric and taught at the University level for a few years—I really thought she gracefully led the seminar rather than just conducted it.

Thank you Michelle! My closet is beautiful and organized. I can see everything and get it just as quickly. Even better, I’ve been able to keep it that way for 2 months!
