Small Accomplishments, Great Strides

Getting rid of clutter can be like walking uphill.“Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together” – Vincent Van Gogh

A master artist knows that a great piece is accomplished in small steps.

We’re all artists of our spaces. We choose our surroundings. We schedule the time to manage our stuff.  Sometimes, “Life” takes over and we abandon our own home base. We become the victim of our space, and our relationships are tested.

Before we met, Robert (fictitious name), a master in his own profession, wrote this poem:

Ode to Clutter

Clutter, clutter, clutter
Clutter, clutter, clutter
You’d think that I lived
in a box or a shoe
or maybe the gutter.

In fact, it makes me so angry
I almost start to mutter.
Or if I were a cookie,
I’d be looking for a cutter.

For it’s papers and boxes
But no Goldilockses.
Not even bread and butter.
And for every word you utter,
There’s more clutter, clutter, clutter.

Because of professional and personal issues, Robert’s work space became Out of Control. He could not dig out from under his “mess”, until he scheduled a consultation with Under Control Organizing.  We created a plan and time line to break down the accumulations. With a custom solution, Robert felt pride in his office, and confidence in finding his important information. He felt Under Control.

Do you have a project that you’ve postponed because you did not know where and how to begin?  Are you stuck on what to do next? 

I can help you plan, organize and accomplish great things.
