Know your end point

4/17/2018
More
Know your end point. One big reason that people put off doing things is that they seem like they'll take forever. I've talked about this idea before in terms of breaking off small chunks of a project so you're not overwhelmed by the whole thing. The podcast is about time management, productivity, procrastination, decluttering, organizing, self management and more. In each episode I talk about challenges and problems in those areas and give you great ideas on how to overcome them. Sometimes I...

Being present

3/21/2018
More
Today's podcast is about being present. In several podcasts, like the one about emotional clutter, that was #47, I've talked about this concept. The present is the place where you are okay. Where life is happening. If you're not in the present, you're missing out. Plus, you're often in a negative emotional state. The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get Organized, available on my website. Each week I go into greater depth about one of the 52 ways. Some weeks I’ll take on...

Make your bed

3/7/2018
More
If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed. I think that's pretty inspiring. Some of you may know that making the bed is one of the five simple steps you can take to create a relaxing bedroom, the subject of one of my books. The full title is Five Steps to a Relaxing Bedroom and you can find it on Amazon and on my website, cluttercoach.net. The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get Organized, available on my website. Each week I go into greater depth about...

The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get Organized, available on my website. Each week I go into greater depth about one of the 52 ways.

Finding the real truth

2/7/2018
More
This is podcast 89 and it's about finding the real truth. I had a breakthrough with a client yesterday. We've been talking for months about different storage options. She has a very specific preference, even though it has significant problems. Basically, she wants open shelving instead of cabinets or bins. The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get Organized, available on my website. Each week I go into greater depth about one of the 52 ways. Some weeks I’ll take on different...

Not seeing what's in front of you

1/31/2018
More
This is Podcast 88 and it's about not being able to see what's in front of you because of how it's defined or named. Naming and defining are important. They help us differentiate things from each other. We assign them attributes that contrast them with other things. The other side of that is they become tied to those attributes and so identified with them that we can't see them in another light. The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get Organized, available on my website. Each...

Design thinking, part 2

1/24/2018
More
This is Podcast 87 and it's about the other three stages of design thinking: ideate, prototype and test. This carries on from the previous podcast. Ideate means coming up with ideas to address the problem you identified in phase 2. This is the time to go wild and think up as many ideas as you can. The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get Organized, available on my website. Each week I go into greater depth about one of the 52 ways. Some weeks I’ll take on different organizing...

Design thinking

1/17/2018
More
This is Podcast 86 and it's about design thinking. I got reintroduced to this concept by Chris Wilson, the founder of Unstuck School, at a workshop he gave recently. The five stages Simon identified are empathize, define, ideate, prototype and test. Although they're called stages, they don't always happen in order and sometimes they loop around. Each stage informs the others. The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get Organized, available on my website. Each week I go into...

Mastery

1/10/2018
More
This is podcast 85 and it's about mastery. A new client dubbed me the Clutter Master. It made me smile because I just watched a kung fu movie the other night where two men vie for the title of wing chun master. Imagine me holding my hands board straight and moving my arms gracefully into position to attack my enemy: clutter! The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get Organized, available on my website. Each week I go into greater depth about one of the 52 ways. Some weeks I’ll...

New year's resolutions

1/3/2018
More
This is podcast 84 and it's about new year's resolutions. Of course it is! It's January 4 and if you made any resolutions, the holidays are definitely over and you have to face putting them into action. If you didn't make any resolutions, or think they are complete baloney, listen in anyway. The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get Organized, available on my website. Each week I go into greater depth about one of the 52 ways. Some weeks I’ll take on different organizing...

Paying attention

12/28/2017
More
This is Podcast 83 and it's about, mindfulness, or paying attention. What I mean when I talk about being mindful is nothing to do with Buddhism or meditation, it's just paying attention to the present moment. In podcast 53 I used the word meditation, so let me explain. There, I meant a state of mind you can get into to help you carry out mundane tasks. It's a state of gentle focus, of turning your attention away from distractions. The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get...

Piggyback new habits

12/19/2017
More
Today is a historic day! My topic is Simple Way #52 , Piggyback new habits, and it's the last chapter in the book. Yay! This is podcast #82 so I've done plenty of shows on content that isn't in the book, probably another book worth. To celebrate, how about a contest? The prize is a PDF copy of the book. The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get Organized, available on my website. Each week I go into greater depth about one of the 52 ways. Some weeks I’ll take on different...

Seeing

12/7/2017
More
This is Podcast #80 and it's about Seeing. I mentioned the concept of inattentional blindness in podcast 69 about Noticing but I didn't elaborate on exactly what it is. Basically, it means that you can look directly at something but not be conscious of seeing it, or remember seeing it. The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get Organized, available on my website. Each week I go into greater depth about one of the 52 ways. Some weeks I’ll take on different organizing topics. If...

Work backwards

11/30/2017
More
Working backwards is a technique to use when you can't seem to find a way into your project. It's similar to the Time Travel concept I talked about in Podcast 64 back in July. Are you stuck because you don’t know how to do something? You know what the desired end result is. You can imagine it and visualize it. But you can’t figure out how to get from here …. to there. The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get Organized, available on my website. Each week I go into greater...

The iterative process

11/15/2017
More
This is podcast 78 and it's about the iterative process. In the design world, an iterative process is one in which a prototype is tested to see if it fulfills its purpose. Feedback from users can show flaws and shortcomings that the designers didn't notice or didn't anticipate. They can be fixed for the next iteration. The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get Organized, available on my website. Each week I go into greater depth about one of the 52 ways. Some weeks I’ll take...

Stories we tell ourselves

11/8/2017
More
This is Podcast 77 and it's about stories we tell ourselves to excuse our behavior. We think they're helpful because they explain ourselves to us. And that's true. But these stories can be dangerous too because they prevent us from moving forward and changing things we want to change. The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get Organized, available on my website. Each week I go into greater depth about one of the 52 ways. Some weeks I’ll take on different organizing topics. If...

Organizing challenges for couples

10/26/2017
More
This is Podcast 76 and it's about organizing challenges for couples. I usually work with individuals, but sometimes I work with couples and families too. Even when I'm working just with an individual, there are family members lurking in the background and they have their own wants, needs, agendas, resistances and bad habits that we have to take into account. The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get Organized, available on my website. Each week I go into greater depth about...

Do It Your Way

10/19/2017
More
This is Podcast 75: do it your way. Back in podcast 17 I talked about how you can make your office less boring and conventional by outfitting it with patterned file folders and a tape dispenser shaped like an animal. Today I'll talk about making your processes and systems less boring. The podcast is based on my book, 52 Simple Ways to Get Organized, available on my website. Each week I go into greater depth about one of the 52 ways. Some weeks I’ll take on different organizing topics. If...

The power of labeling

10/12/2017
More
It's to be expected that organizers like to label things. They run around with their little machines and slap a label onto anything that's not moving. I don't go that far, and not everything needs a label. Ease of finding things and ease of putting them away are two big reasons that getting organized matters, for anything you organize. It's supposed to save you time and make your life easier, not turn you into an obsessive compulsive freak. But in some cases labels come in super handy, and...
