Sometimes, even the smallest of challenges can seem overwhelming. Tackling small projects helps you to take action freeing you for those larger more demanding organizing needs.
Allowing yourself a few minutes to untangle cables, separate socks or clear out your glove compartment will provide a sense of achievement. Once you begin to feel you are accomplishing less complicated problems, you will be better able to take on a closet or a garage.
Take small steps forward. Recognize them as small opportunities toward a larger reward.
It's as simple as that.
