How to Actually Get Organized for Good Part 3

Coming in for the third round of teaching us all things organization are Kathi and Tonya, the organizational queen who gets things done. Really only 10 percent of organization has to do with the frou frou stuff. The other 90 percent can be split into thirds. In the first episode, Kathi and Tonya walked us through the first 30 percent: decluttering the nonsense so we don’t have to touch it again. The second episode covered the next 30 percent and was all about making decisions in advance and bossing our inner child around. Now, in the finale, they’re talking about how to put those decisions into action and showing us:

 

• We underestimate the fatigue of many little decisions
• How these decisions end up zapping our energy
• What Mr. Rogers has to do with organization

How to Actually Get Organized for Good Part 2

Kathi is back with her buddy Tonya continuing the conversation on how to get organized for good. Last week they helped us discover that decluttering is the first 30 percent. Today the discussion moves into pre-deciding, the second 30 percent. Only a tiny 10 percent make up the part we typically think of when it comes to organization. Listen in to find out about Part 2 of the important 90 percent and how these three principles will help you actually get organized for good:

 

  • 10 percent is choosing the systems that work for you
  • 30 percent is decluttering
  • 30 percent is pre-deciding

 

 

Wondering about the last 30 percent? Be sure to join in next week to find out in Part 3 of How to Actually Get Organized for Good.

How to Actually Get Organized for Good

Kathi is talking with Tonya Kubo today, and they’re cracking the case on perhaps the most common topic in Clutter Free Academy: just how in the world do we get more organized? Organization is really about getting ahead and thinking about where things will be when we need them. Kathi simplifies this process by reminding us that everything has a cost of space, time, energy, or money. Then she helps us prioritize the systems and things we really need in this season, teaching us about the first 30% of organization:

 

  • Don’t let it into the house
  • Kick it back into play
  • Lessen the amount of things we manage

If you’ve ever thought decluttering should be easier than it is, then you won’t want to miss this conversation. Let’s stop rearranging our stuff or trying to reinvent the wheel each time and start decluttering. Together we can start applying these great strategies today and overcome these misconceptions:

 

  • This should be easier
  • You don’t know the people I live with
  • Fifteen minutes just isn’t enough time

Comparison Girl: Lessons from Jesus on Me – Free Living in a Measure-Up World

 

Do you constantly compare yourself with others? On social media, in your neighborhood, at church, or in the school drop-off lane, do you push yourself to prove that you measure up . . . and then feel ashamed when you don’t? Measuring yourself against others isn’t healthy. And it isn’t God’s plan. In fact, the way of Jesus is completely upside down from this measure-up world. He invites us to follow him and be restored to freedom, confidence, and joy.
