Achieving Your Goal: I keep this quote above my desk to remind me why I’m working on the little steps that lead to a distant-seeming goal. Because those little steps can sometimes feel like Mount Everest.
The Why of Achieving Your Goal is Key
Whether you are decluttering or re-arranging one room or your entire house, it takes one step at a time. What helps you keep taking those little steps is reminding yourself of why you want a decluttered and organized office, or a more attractive and comfortable home.
Are you decluttering because you think that will make you a better person?
Nope, it won’t make you a better person. Decluttering and organizing will make you a calmer person. And that is a worthy goal.
Are you re-decorating or re-arranging your home to impress others?
I sincerely hope not. Re-fresh your home with decor, arrangement or color to make you feel more at home and express yourself.
Decluttering or re-decorating – do it for yourself. That is enough “why” for achieving your goal.
Have a goal for your home or office and don’t know and it feels beyond reach?
