Try virtual organizing to bring harmony in your home
You’re a self-motivated person but you keep looking around your house wondering why you’re not getting things done right now. Since you’ve been sheltering at home because of the coronavirus pandemic, you keep thinking that your extra time should mean you’re accomplishing more.
Many are wanting to start organizing projects that have been put off for quite some time. Maybe it’s an overloaded closet packed with stuff you’re not wearing or using. Maybe your home office is more out of control than ever because you’re working from home. And then there’s that room you keep walking right by because you don’t even want to think about how much stuff is sitting in there.
Frustration leads to more procrastination. But where do you even begin?
Try virtual organizing.
If you’re not familiar with the concept, virtual organizing is a process in which professional organizers like me use phone and computer screens to work with you. I can’t be there in person, but I can absolutely help take the weight off your shoulders by guiding you through a wide range of organizing, decluttering and stress-busting projects.
All you have to do is connect with me using your phone or computer and aim it at the problem you want to solve. Whether you’re in the Los Angeles area near me or anywhere else on the globe, if you’ve got access to a smartphone or computer, you’ve got a connection to me. As a professional organizer, I’ll virtually hold your hand and work with you to set up systems that bring in the harmony. You’ll gain new organizing skills and build confidence in your ability to organize. The truth is that organizing what may seem like overwhelming projects is something you can learn to do. It’s retraining your brain the same way you do with other skills you learn. Instead of procrastination, you take action. Instead of feeling uncertain and alone, you’ll have a professional organizer guiding you every step of the way.
Organizing is something everyone really can get better at. I can teach you how to make critical decisions and how to determine where objects should go. I can also help you come to peace with the idea that it really is time to let some things go to another home. That may mean it’s time to sell something, donate it, or, in some cases, disposing of it because it serves no useful purpose for anyone any longer. Emotional attachment to an abundance of objects – all the feelings and memories about how they entered your life – is often an obstacle that prevents people from moving forward and living in the space they truly want.
The truth is there are no organizing fairies that are going to swoop into your house in the middle of the night and make your organizing problems disappear. You’re not going to wake up in the morning and say, “Oh, look what happened while I was sleeping!”
The reality is organizing and getting things done takes a bit of effort and work. The good news is that anybody and everybody who understands that they need help can find the help they need. I can promise you this: if you are willing to put in the work to a given challenge through virtual organizing, you will reap the rewards. The more you’re willing to work, the greater your rewards will be.
There’s even more good news.
Virtual organizing can be more cost-effective than traditional in-person organizing. Professional organizers like myself generally require a client to commit to a minimum number of 3 hours per day. Virtual organizing sessions can start with as little as just one hour. It’s actually a great way to try working with a professional organizer and get those projects handled.
