Have you started an organizing project with the best of intentions, only to lose steam before the project is done? Does your beautifully organized space deteriorate into its previous state more quickly than you’d like to admit? Or do you never really get going at all, and wonder why it’s so difficult to get started? If any of this sounds familiar, you’re not alone! Many of us struggle with the same issues, and we all have mental traps that capture us and keep us from succeeding in our organizing goals. Come to this presentation and learn about the four common mental traps that can derail even the most well-intentioned of organizing projects!
