I am preparing to teach an organizing class at one of the local high schools for community education this week. My daughter and I were talking and she said she can’t stand it when a teacher says, “Oh, this is easy”. This sets so many people up for failure because when they try it and have problems or can’t do it they feel they are a failure. (NOT SO!)
Don’t be fooled by those who say organizing is easy. If you don’t find that it is easy you may become discouraged. Everyone is different and what is easy for one person may not be for another—so don’t believe it unless you do it and it is easy for you.
Everyone learns differently and does things differently. That is why I give a lot of different tips on organizing so that hopefully I can make it simple and perhaps even easy for you. I find de-cluttering my home fun and for me it is easy—but that doesn’t mean someone else feels the same way.
How do you feel about organizing? Is it easy? I suspect that sometimes yes, sometimes not so much. My daughter was knitting a scarf and she complained that they said it was easy. As we talked she realized it was easy, but it took a long time to do.
We sometimes get this mixed up—it may be easy but time consuming so we say it was hard. Your opinion?
