Our natural inclination is to want to organize someone else or dive deep into organizing our "passions."
The easiest way to actually GET ORGANIZED is to go through your home in a logical progression starting with one room and slowly working your way through the whole house.
But we get stopped by wanting to organize family members or jumping into the deep end with Passion Projects.
Everyone has 1-3 current Passion Projects. Passion Projects are hobbies, memory items or pursuits that we identify with and make us come alive. We over buy and over collect in these areas because our desire to know and do more is unquenchable.
Passion Projects are not necessarily a monetary investment. But they are always a huge emotional and time investment.
Because we are so passionate and invested in our hobbies, we naturally want to get those organized first. Which is always a bad idea.
Passion Projects are hard to explain to others. We do not have a rational reason why we are saving what we are saving, but we knew we "need" to.
I am totally cool with that, but overtime I want you to get down to 1-3 Passion Projects. You can't be passionate about everything...
In 2017 I am going to dive deep into organizing Passion Projects. For now, focus on decluttering and organizing any nonPassion Project space in your home.
Come join the discussion over on Facebook and tell me what your (and your family member's) Passion Projects are.
