Fearless Perspective

What scares you, I mean REALLY scares you? Being in a car accident? Loss of a loved one? Your kids not going to college and struggling in life? Losing your job?  Why do I make such awful suggestions, PERSPECTIVE.

Psychology Today defines FEAR as a vital response to physical and emotional danger—if we didn’t feel it, we couldn’t protect ourselves from legitimate threats. But often we fear situations that are far from life-or-death, and thus hang back for no good reason.

“Perfect” Timing

Timing is everything.  Whether we call it a coincidence or answer to prayer… I believe most things happen at the right time.

Today I met a client with familiar obstacles: too much stuff, too little time, too little motivation and not enough help.

Can I help her get a handle on the cluttered rooms, find a system that works for her and encourage her to build habits that will bring calm to her space?  I will do my best.  Could we have started before now? Possibly, but the bottom line is that she is ready now.  And here is the kicker… she picked up my business card over 3 years ago!!!

So what takes a person so long to make a decision or do something different?  Procrastination, fear, unrealistic expectations of themselves or other? Maybe a bit of each of these.

What is procrastination?

Cornering the Market on Great Ideas!

Isn’t the human brain an amazing organ. Not only is the brain keeping us alive by telling our lungs to breathe and our heart to beat, but it is creating thoughts, ideas and decisions that mold our very world.

In a time of facebook, twitter, pinterest and blogs those thoughts, ideas and decisions can spread like wildfire!

How does that relate to MAS Movement LLC Professional Organizing?

What happened!?!

Well as you can plainly see, it has been over a month since my last post. Why? Remember that “margin” thing I spoke of, well when my kids arrived home early from their grandparents, Colorado caught on fire and a colleague called and ask if she could hand off a client to me due to a family emergency – all bets were OFF!

Margin

MAS Movement LLC’s first official sale was a huge success. My team and I still have plenty of work to do to clear away what was left. Charity, scrap metal, hazardous waste, eBay and general recycling have yet to be sorted, we have a few days of work ahead before we can broadcast our final numbers.

But what a weekend! Summer is in full swing… vacations to look forward to, landscape projects coming to fruition, calendar booked with clients and then HICCUPS. Family illness effects our travel. A major storm thwarts our backyard plans. And a single job takes twice as long as expected causing cancellations. Am I just complaining about being too busy? Certainly no complaints here, but a great opportunity to revisit the “margin” in my schedule

What is “margin”?

Thank you, please come again

Last week’s class was a HUGE success. We were just about out of space and a few who rsvp’d weren’t able to make it! Thank you to all who were there, it was a pleasure meeting each of you.

We covered four things in the class:

Identifying clutter

Space and containers

Managing mail by “opting out”

Recycling – local resources

It was a lot of information to take in. Hopefully all those in attendance took away some helpful tools to get life in order.

Your Colorado Springs Professional Organizer

Jessica Bair has been organizing and reorganizing since she was a little girl: one of her favorite pastimes as a kid was rearranging her bedroom furniture! Who knew thirty years later she would build a thriving company based on helping people change their environment so they could better enjoy their life and surroundings. Jessica grew up in Dallas, TX, but quickly escaped west to go to college at NMSU where she met and married her husband, Dave, of 16 years. Married life brought new organizational challenges, two children, seven moves (two international), several fish, a gerbil, a dog, job changes and building a company.
