Asking For Help
Sometimes even an organizer needs help.
This was me last week. I went down to my basement and I just couldn’t take it anymore.
I looked around and everything bothered me. It felt like things were misplaced, like there
was all of these loose ends and that some things did not have a purpose.
I wanted everything to flow, to feel that everything was were it belonged, that everything
had a meaningful home. That is when I realized that I needed HELP!
Yikes, an organizer needing help?
So, I called my friend / colleague promised her a wonderful lunch in exchange of her help
with my basement. I know that asking for help is not always easy for everyone and some
people equate it to failure or not being good enough. Trust me asking for help is a life
save. After I had my second child my pediatrician gave me the best advice ever. She said
“ Don’t try to do everything yourself, don’t try to be wonder woman, please ask for
Organizing is not an easy task. I needed an extra pair of eyes, new suggestions, support
and someone that was going to make it fun. When were done it felt like there were ten
pounds lifted off of me. I felt energized, inspired, creative, and ready to continue to de-
clutter my clients.
What do you need help with?
Make a list of everything that needs to get done around the house, break it down by
rooms and pick 2-3 things to do every week. Ask yourself if you need help with these
tasks? Then go and ask for the help.
It can be from a handy man, a friend or me just do it.
I guarantee you, that you will feel amazing once you accomplish your goal.
Let’s finish shaking winter out and lets get our homes and ourselves for spring.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
