I was listening to an excellent podcast yesterday that I wanted to share with you. One of my favorite podcasts is called “Organize Mindfully”, and on Podcast #32, professional organizer Bonnie Jo Dewkett gave a great example of how having a place for everything in your home can simplify your life and help you accomplish more.
Her analogy involved the simple task of emptying the dishwasher. It’s a task we do almost every day. We may dread it, but once we get started, it doesn’t usually take very long at all. Why? Because most of us have a place for everything we unload from the dishwasher. We know where to put the cups, the plates, the bowls, the silverware. We can do it almost mindlessly, and it usually takes less than 5 minutes.
What if your whole house was just like this? What if there was one place for everything in your home? Wouldn’t keeping things picked up be so easy? Wouldn’t it be wonderful to look around and know that even if things got a little messy (an inevitable reality in our lives), picking up would seem almost mindless because we would simply have to put everything back in its proper place?
Does this seem too good to be true? It is entirely possible to reach this state of organization. It will take some time, no doubt. You may think you don’t have that time. But did you know that for every minute spent organizing, an hour is earned? You don’t have to do it all at once. There are many excellent plans for getting your whole house in order that require just a few minutes per day.
