Does anyone else feel like this January flew by? It’s possible that I’m feeling this way because we’ve been ramping up for the first ever Decluttering by Design 90-day challenge starting Feb. 1. It’s a virtual, small-group challenge that promises to change three spaces of your home, design organization systems that work for you, and make it all gorgeous. But is it right for YOU? In this blog, I’ll share some tips to determine if you’re ready or not. And, just in case you still have questions, you’re invited to this Saturday’s FINAL preview event. You can read on for more details or jump over to RSVP here.
Are you caught in a negative loop with clutter?
Do you wake up every morning and feel negative emotions about yourself or the people you love when you see an area of clutter? Sometimes we’re so stuck in the drama of our own dilemmas, that we can’t see the obvious solutions. It’s like a blind spot! Changing something small can transform your day-to-day experience.
The Decluttering by Design program requires you to select three areas of your home to makeover that represent each of the following: wealth, health/daily routine, and connection. When you focus on these zones, our goal is to benefit your LIFE in these three areas as well. By working with this group, you can free yourself of some negative loops that are holding you back in the realms of wealth, health/daily routine, and connection. And we’ll be referencing your decluttering personality types to create systems that work for your family.
Are you open to trying something new?
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”– Albert Einstein
It’s possible if you’re reading this that you feel like you’ve tried EVERYTHING to declutter and organize your home. But a lot of cookie-cutter organization programs just don’t work for people. I wrote all about that here. You may find an online challenge appealing because you’ll get the inspiration and guidance of working with a professional, without risking germs or someone finding something embarrassing! (Though, I always LOL at that part on the Home Edit’s Netflix show!) It’s efficient in that you can make decisions as you go without waiting on others. But the small-group setting, private Facebook group and check-ins means you’re NOT going at it alone.
Do you work well in group settings?
I know I’m the type of person who’s highly influenced by a group. A good spin class gets me to burn more calories in 45 minutes than I could do on my own. The sorest I’ve ever been was from a week-long high school cheerleading camp. And I’m such an extrovert, I ONLY studied in a group setting in college. I do extremely well with group accountability! And apparently, many people follow this same trend…
The Association for Talent Development did a study on how accountability factors into achieving goals, and they concluded the following stats:
The probability of completing your goal:
- You have an idea or a goal: 10%
- You consciously decide you will do it: 25%
- You decide when you will do it: 40%
- You plan how you will do it: 50%
- You commit to someone you will do it: 65%
- You have a specific accountability appointment with a person you’ve committed to: 95%
And the Decluttering by Design 90-day challenge definitely counts as the last one, because of the investment and seven set checkpoints throughout the program. So this means you have a 95% chance of hitting your goals for ALL THREE spaces you select. Cool right?
Do you have 2-4 hours a week to dedicate to the challenge?
This challenge is designed to meet you where you are, in so many ways. And I know not all women can promise multiple week nights or whole weekends to a challenge like this for three months. And that’s totally okay! If you have 2-4 hours a week minimum that you can dedicate to the challenge, we can get you results! If you have MORE time than that, we can take it even further. When you join, I’ll ask you more specifically about this in the personal assessment so we can create your custom decluttering plan.
Are you ready to prioritize your own happiness, goals, and wellbeing?
This is critical. I know so many successful women who put everything else before themselves. (See video: why successful women struggle with clutter) But if you’re ready to escape the negative patterns of clutter and create three spaces that support and excite you, then this program is MADE for you. Together, we’ll create massive changes in your home. Are you ready for it?
