Decide Where to Start

What area of your life is the most chaotic? Try to narrow it down to a particular space in your home, or a specific area of your life. Pinpoint what’s causing you the most stress and focus on just that zone in order to take a goal (like “get organized”)  down to something achievable (like “sort out the home office”).

Narrow Down the Problem

Disorganized, is a catch-all word that doesn’t really mean anything by itself. Is the problem clutter, or is it time management? Maybe it’s a matter of keeping up with personal obligations.

Make a List and Get to Work

Now that you have an area to target and a firm grasp on the problem at hand, make a list specific, measurable tasks that you can do between now and the end of the year.

Tackle the Space

There’s no shortcut to staying organized. At the end of the day, it’s going to be about planning and willpower. Stay strong people, and let’s get through the holidays together!
