    I love that you included revising the system after it is in place. Many people assume that a system will last forever. It will last a long time, but not forever.

      It is difficult to teach clients that you can’t get it perfect. It maybe perfect for a while. A good system has room to grow.

    Like having a visual for the process of getting organized. And when you look at it, things don’t seem as overwhelming. While it’s possible to get stuck at any stage, at least the phases are clear. You can start at the beginning and go from there.

      A visual makes it easy to keep reviewing the steps until they become a natural process for the person.

    This simplifies the entire process, and like Sabrina, I agree that it’s key to re-evaluate and tweak your system as time goes by. Too often, people think creating a system is one-and-done, but as our lives change, so must our systems. I also love that the process ends with the reward of enjoying the new space. People sometimes need to be prompted to take joy from change.

      Thanks for the comment “take the joy from the change.” I use the reward as praise for working so hard, concentrating and focusing well on the task. I like the idea of the reward letting you take joy in your new home.
