I often see a direct correlation between disorganization and an over full plate of projects with my clients. We all like to have fun and have many passions but truly, what fits on your plate?
When I started my business 8 years ago, I take a good hard look at my plate. I have always been a committee type gal. I love charity and have been involved in many different wonderful things in my life. From fundraisers, to childrens centers, I have done it all.
After realizing that in the organizing biz, you don't have a regular schedule, I decided to scale back. Instead of doing volunteer work with regular organization, I volunteer for several events per year.
I needed to free my time up to effectively run my business. I also needed to be flexible for my clients. By making these changes, I was able to have a better balance.
Is part of the reason you are disorganized because your plate is too full? Think about it!
