Getting organized without feeling overwhelmed in 2021

Let’s start 2021 with a new outlook on life, feeling organized and fresh for the coming year ahead!

The first step in getting organized is not looking at your entire project as a whole. This can make you feel overwhelmed and anxious. You might feel unsure of where to begin, so plan to set aside a small amount of time each day to take a step in the direction of better organization. Whether you set aside one hour, thirty minutes, or just ten to fifteen, you can make progress in your project. I have put together a list to help.
