Every client and situation is different. But the approach often looks similar, whether it’s clearing out a garage, setting up a communal office space, or cleaning up a messy computer desktop.
Sometimes the hardest part is to start, because oftentimes you don’t know where to start. After a brief chat about what your goals are for our work, I help us figure out a starting point for the session, and create a workflow based on common needs I see across my client base.
I learn about you by working with you. We will start to define your stuck points and determine the different areas of your life that are involved. I listen intently, ask good questions, and offer a comfortable approach to doing this purposeful work. This is also when you start to envision what a different daily life would look like for you.
As we continue to work through the issues together, you’ll find that choices become easier. The work builds on itself. The story of one issue informs the story of the next, and it becomes easier to see which things are no longer serving you.
Once we are both clear on the problems, the options, and the decisions being made, then we can finally start organizing. This isn’t about placings items in clear plastic bins and putting them in rainbow order. This is about creating habits, building upon your existing systems, and making sure that you are set up with something designed around how you naturally want to live and work.
I always aim to end the day in a good spot for you, which means even if we aren’t completely done, we are cleaned up and back to a livable state. We talk about the homework you have now, and if needed, set a time for the next session.
After some time with your new systems, it will start to become clear what is working great and where you still need help. Included in my services is a free follow-up call one month after our final session, where I can offer guidance in how to further improve your new systems.
