Quick Tip: Keep At It
The most common obstacle I see when getting a home organized is giving up in the middle. You have to keep at it if you want to get organized.
It is essential that you keep going until you get to the maintenance phase otherwise you will never reach your goal. It's hard - especially in the middle stages - to keep up motivation, but you can do it. Take at least 15 minutes every single day to chip away at your goals. Or as a client of mine repeats like a mantra, "Baby steps. Baby steps." It takes a lot of time, but baby steps will get you there. Like weight loss or getting fit goals, if you only work out once a month, you will never get there. Taking tiny actions every single day will.
Keep at the organizing until it's done. No matter what.
