Am I Ready to Get Organized?

Though it would seem easy to surmise if one is ready to undertake an organizational task, the definition of the word ready is something we often have to discuss with those who phone our office. To truly determine if you are ready, ask yourself the below questions which are based on the meaning of the word ready in the Oxford English Dictionary.

  • Do I want to put things in order?
  • Do I have a willingness to commit to the task at hand?
  • Am I without feelings of, and am I not exhibiting, reluctance?
  • Am I liable to undertake?

Some things you might also want to ask yourself in determining if you are ready to organize:

  • Am I unable/unwilling to have company in my home because I have too much stuff? Or can’t clean properly?
  • Have I been unable to have my home repaired or serviced because I am embarrassed or not able to have a serviceman/contractor access what he needs to get to in my home?
  • Do I look around at all the things I would like to do in my home, but feel overwhelmed and quit each time I start?

Dr. Seuss said in his children’s book, I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla Sollew, “I’ve heard there are troubles of more than one kind; some come from ahead, and some come from behind. But I’ve brought a big bat. I’m all ready, you see; now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!” When you have determined you are truly ready to take on an organizational task, and you feel too overwhelmed to go it alone, a professional organizer can help.
