The Ultimate Guide to Making Systems Stick
Congrats! Now that you’ve edited your items, categorized them, and contained them...you are free to never organize again for the rest of your life. And neither does your family! You now live in a museum where no one is allowed to touch things. You don’t greet guests by taking their coat – you tell them to please keep their belongings,
including hands, arms, and legs, inside the vehicle at all times. In fact, you don’t even have guests over anymore! Because who wants to go to a museum that doesn’t have a proper gift shop?
Just kidding.... hate to break it to you, but your organizing journey isn’t over yet. To make your systems stick, you have to make it a lifestyle. Embracing this reality is the only answer.
But don’t worry. We’re not here to make you feel guilty or lazy or bad about yourself for not being able to maintain the systems in your once-organized space. Rather, we’re here to help you get back on track and be your biggest cheerleaders.
Do our homes ever get messy? Yes, of course they do! Every house gets messy, particularly when you add
spouses and children and pets! But what we are quick to tell people is that, while our houses get messy, they never get disorganized...and that’s something different. Once
you have smart systems that can flex over time, it’s not hard to stay on track.
