Reader QuestionHi Maria...I love your web site, your newsletter, and your books and planners. I’ve been a fan for years and I appreciate all of your organizing wisdom more than you’ll ever know!My question is, what’s something easy I can do each day to encourage myself to get and stay organized...that doesn’t take a whole lot of time?Mark G., MinneapolisOur ResponseDear Mark,Thanks SO MUCH for your positive feedback. Your note is very sweet and thoughtful, and I’m so glad you’re enjoying the organizing information!To answer your question, I highly recommend giving yourself a daily pep talk as an excellent way to self-energize in just minutes each day.Find some joy in the things you do each day. Listen to your favorite music while cleaning, say a little prayer or think a happy thought for each organizing task you do, play 'beat the clock' while you're working on your projects.Keeping yourself happy and motivated will help you do the job better, with less stress. Keep telling yourself that it's up to you whether today is going to be a bad day or a great day.Be confident and positive. Rather than getting overwhelmed at the things that need to be done, work in small chunks and keep saying, 'I can do it!' Jot down your successes at the end of the day, and celebrate.Get a book of motivational quotes, or sign up for a motivational newsletter. Every morning when you wake up, read one of these quotes out loud, and reflect on it. You'll feel refreshed and ready to go each day!Reader Clinic SubmittalHave an organizing question?
