One-Minute Motivations

An affirmation is a strong, positive statement that something is already so.

-Shakti Gawain

Guess what? I found another clutter control book at home! This one is called The One-Minute Organizer: Plain and Simple also by Donna Smallin (Pownal, VT.: Storey Books, 2004). Throughout this book, she has interspersed affirmations that can help motivate. I would like to share a few and continue to do so weekly for a while. You may want to put the ones that speak to you on the top of your calendar or on the start-up screen of your computer to help you daily strive to lead a clutter-free day.

“You don’t have to stop everything to get organized. You just have to START. Make organizing a part of your daily life. Do it first. Do it fast.” (pg. 11)

“Yes, organizing is work. But there’s nothing all that difficult about it. The hardest part is getting STARTED.” (pg. 16)


“Our experience is driven by our beliefs. If, for example, you believe that nothing you do makes a difference, that will be your experience. See if you can pinpoint one belief that may be limiting your ability to get organized.” (pg. 23)

We can share some of our beliefs and experiences at the next meeting on July 2nd. Jot down some of the things you are thinking about the task and we can help each other dispel negative thoughts.
