One Simple Trick to Start Decluttering Now

Decluttering can be a daunting process, especially if you have a lot of excess items hanging around. Sometimes just thinking about how much there is to look through and the decisions that will have to be made around each item can be enough to keep you from starting to begin with! One thing I have learned over time is that you really just have to start. If you don’t take action, nothing will ever happen (more on that in a future blog post). So what is the easiest way to start?

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I first heard about this through Dan's free podcast, which I learned about through Dave Ramsey. I'm hoping to gain access to a group of individuals, including Dan himself, who may help me learn the best way to launch my first entrepreneurial start-up and create a successful home based business.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I'm currently employed as an optometrist in a private practice setting.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I do enjoy my career as an optometrist, but I feel as if a part of me is missing. I've had to become so scientific and factual with this line of work that I feel my creative side has been all but snuffed out. When I was younger I loved reading, writing, drawing and photography. I loved spending hours outside and taking in the beauty of the world around me and enjoying the quiet and solitude of nature. Now I spend my days in a dark little room with no windows. I don't want to leave my career, but I would like to create more balance in my life allowing time to soak up the sunlight and nurture the creative side of me.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I'm also working Dave Ramsey's debt snowball (and considering my significant student loan debt) as much as I'd love to cut back on my employment days per week, in order to do so successfully I would need to create supplemental income outside of my employment. I have a desire to try something entrepreneurial but want to start in something outside of my current career. My dream as a child was to be a photographer for National Geographic, or at least have one of my photographs published in their magazine. So to start I'd like to create a gallery out of the vast collection of nature photographs I've created over the years and offer these images for sale in various sizes to customers. I've also thought about compiling a "coffee-table book" which would highlight collections of my work. In addition I would like to donate a percentage of my profits to a nature conservation organization in order to give back and protect that which I enjoy the most.
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
I know I can be extremely creative in writing and photographic composition if I allow myself to grow in that area again. I'm also very detail oriented and love the planning process of creating something - unfortunately almost to the point of perfectionism. I'll plan and plan and plan, but have a difficult time taking action until I feel that something is as perfect as it can get. I'm also poor in sales, marketing, and advertising which I know are incredibly important in the type of business I wish to create. As an introverted person I feel very uncomfortable trying to pressure someone into a sale, even if I truly believe in the product.

3 Simple Steps to Organize Meal Planning and Avoid Excess Trips to the Grocery Store

Posted on June 21, 2015 at 6:00am 7 Comments

Hey everyone! I’m glad you made it back for this week’s blog post. Today I’m going to discuss how I organize meal planning for my household. I am the primary cook in our house. My husband will kick in on the weekends, mostly to make breakfast, but nightly dinners are up to me. Since we both tend to get home from work already “starving” for dinner, I have had to create a system that quickly gets meals on the table in 20-40 minutes. My husband and I also strongly believe in cooking from…

Procrastination – One of Your Biggest Organizational Hurdles

Posted on June 15, 2015 at 7:12am 1 Comment

Today’s topic is all about something I struggle with regularly – procrastination. I have learned over time that procrastination is one of the biggest hurdles you will have to overcome on your path to a more organized life. Most likely, if you are reading this post it’s because you recognize that you are not as organized as you would like and are looking for tips to improve your organizational skills. This generally also means that the thought of getting organized is not particularly…

Welcome to the first post at MyOrganizingTips! Here I plan to start a community of individuals who want to share thoughts and ideas around the best ways to get organized. It doesn’t matter if you have already worn out your favorite labeler, or if you are the type of person to find your keys in the freezer, everyone can benefit from a more organized lifestyle.

As you may have read from my about page, I definitely did not start out an organized person (you can access the story…
