10 Common Roadblocks to Getting Organized
1. All or nothing thinking/taking on too much.
" I'm going to take a few days off from work and finally get this house/office together!" Doesn't sound very realistic, does it? What usually happens?
2. Not having a plan.
Fail to plan, plan to fail. Be specific about what you're going to tackle. How long it will take and what tools or materials will you need in order to do the job?
3. Not writing it down.
It's too difficult to keep it all in our heads. Once you decide on the task or project, break it down into small steps. On paper.
4. Not scheduling time to do it.
Thinking you can do this anytime, really means NO time. If you can't take the time to schedule it, in your calendar, how will you take the time to get it done?
5. Not scheduling appropriately.
Don't schedule your project at night if you're a morning person. Don't expect to have quiet time when the kids are off from school. Don't try to do the big, focused job on the day you're having workmen in the house. Don't overbook!
6. Not prioritizing.
Do the bigger, time sensitive tasks first. Getting caught up in the little things can cause the time get away from you.
7. Not making places for things.
Take the time to create a logical place for something to live. If there's no room it, some decisions need to be made around clearing some space.
8. Not putting things away.
Prevent piles. File away those papers, books, clean laundry, in a timely manner.
9. Not completing tasks.
Are you one of those people who have dozens of projects lying around, in various stages of completion? Ask yourself what's in the way? Address what's preventing you from finishing the project.
10.Thinking you can do it alone.
It's not easy to make changes. Honor your feelings when clearing out old family possessions or mementos. Make a phone call and tell someone you're going to finally get to that thing you've been procrastinating about. Or hire a professional organizer so you don't have to do it alone.

Escaping The Clutter Trap? - 5 Steps For Increasing Productivity And Decreasing Stress
? Do you feel overwhelmed by all the "stuff" in your life? Magazines and journals you've never finished reading, clothes you never wear, e-mail you haven't responded to, or photographs you intended to share with friends or colleagues? ? Are you embarrassed to invite people to your home or office because they will see the way you live or work? Do you rush around when someone's coming to hide the evidence?? Is clutter putting a strain on a relationship that's important to you? Do you argue with your spouse about what to keep, or spend time reassuring your colleagues that you know what everything is??
