Use motivation-boosters to get organized Everybody needs a little motivation sometimes, especially when it comes to something that’s going to take a bit of effort to accomplish. When you need a little boost of motivation to get something done, try these motivation-boosters on for size. 1. Set a small, do-able goal and give yourself permission to stop when you reach it. If you want to organize ALL of your clothing (for example), that doesn’t mean you have to do it all in one organizing session. Start with one drawer or one small section of your clothes closet…something that’s only going to take you 15 minutes or so. Give yourself permission to stop, if you so choose, when that one goal has been reached. 2. Designate something fun to enjoy afterwards. I always find that if something fun is on the horizon that I’m looking forward to, I’m more apt to do what I have to do…so I can get to that fun…whatever that may be. So, if I’m looking forward to sitting down to read the next chapter in the novel I’m enjoying, I’m more motivated to organize a shelf, respond to my email, clean the kitchen counter (whatever small goal I’m trying to accomplish) so I can reap my reward (get to my book.) 3. Fuel up. I’m way more motivated to do something when I’m feeling physically alert and energetic. What does diet, exercise, and sleep have to do with getting organized? EVERYTHING. Because it’s very hard for any of us to be motivated when we’re feeling sluggish. So, eat nutritionally sound (avoid sugary foods and beverages…avoid heavy meals), keep moving (the more you sit, the more tired you will be), and get enough rest every night (at least 7 hours.)
