Making Intentional Decisions

In 1995, I found myself recleaning the same clutter in clients’ homes. I decided to ask a few clients that I was close to if I could apply my C – O – R + method in their homes.

I had “absolutely” from everyone. I sat with them explaining that while cleaning their homes, I had noticed that I can no longer fit one more bottle of cleaning products under the kitchen sink or fit one more pair of shoes into the hallway closet.

I explained my C – O- R + method: the acronyms stand for CLEAN – ORGANIZE – REDESIGN + so much more. I told them that I was noticing clutter in spaces where I kept recleaning and tidying up each week. I explained together we could come up with systems that can make the home functional, and efficient with purposeful spaces.  I discussed how from then on when I clean their homes,  I would organize drawers, cabinets, and closets along my path of cleaning. 

When I finished my first home with my new method – it was celebrated by the family giving notes and cards when I arrived at their home the following week. 

The notes mentioned items like Time Saving, Saving money at the grocery store because of no more overbuying, and finding paperwork for school or work easier, getting out of the door on time in the mornings.

After leaving that home with cards and notes in hand, I decided to make an intentional decision for my business that the Clean – Organize – Redesign method will become the foundation of my cleaning company.

I found a niche in the then-saturated cleaning business. It has served clients well over the last 27 years, In 1999 I brought the method into commercial cleaning, which lead to helping out small doctors’, and lawyers’ offices get organized and be more efficient businesses.

This new business foundation solved a problem for my clients, it fit the 3 priorities I found to make the final decision to interweave this method into my business. 

I would leave my clients homework when they were having a hard time making those decisions, here is the homework I would leave them: 

1-minute blueprint for making difficult decisions

  • What is the problem that needs to be solved? (declutter clients’ homes)
  • Identify your top priorities for having the problem solved  (keep it to 3) (save client time, save labor, extra$)
  • List them in the order of importance  (save client time, save labor, extra$)
  • Write the 3 priorities in their order, and post them where they’re visible

The next time they had to make a difficult decision, they could evaluate their options through what they learned is most important to them.

Below is a 10/10 sheet, ten spaces, ten minutes – these are spaces where you’re going to see quick visuals of organizing, it helps to keep you motivated for your next challenge.

I’m Not Into Country . . .

But, damn these beautiful souls just kick in country music’s MFer door! Like I said I’m not into country music but a huge fan of AGT suggested to me that I take a listen to them. These women made an intentional decision to show people who they are, and what their gifts are – those are the decisions that transform your life. I will be watching “Chapel Hart” to see if they get to where they want to be.

I love their energy!

I Help Make Decisions ~

I have clients ask me “do you ever see the mess, dirt and trash when you go into people’s cluttered homes?” I always reply with “Nope, I just see a whole lot of decisions not made.” The reasons people continue to have a relationship with their clutter is many. In the last 25 years of organizing homes and offices, I found that many times people just don’t know what to do with their stuff. I have seen some great “Start & Stop” processes in my coaching, you know where someone did take the time to organize all the mail sitting in a mound on the far end of the kitchen counter. But, then it becomes overwhelming and doing nothing seems more reasonable then deciding on the right place to put something. You just need to make a decision . . . right or wrong it doesn’t matter.

You know you have this person in your circle of family & friends – don’t lie!

The ones that has that cookie tin in their hands, the tin with the really cute picture of a kitten and snowman looking adorable. They are thinking maybe someone in the family can use it? Maybe they will use it next Christmas. They walk it around the house trying to find that perfect home for it, taking it and fitting it in the bookcase – damn it’s just a little too wide. Then, they try to put it on a table, it doesn’t look right with the Spring decor. Then they see a spot, they pick up speed as they dash across the room to the same exact freakin’ spot they took it from. So, now we know where the new home is – It’s called “Indecision Island” where all the misfits of the clutter end up, it’s really called the kitchen table!

Getting There

Make decisions in small, daily steps to clean and organize a space. Pick a small space like the kitchen table or one kitchen counter, keep consistent with daily small organizing tasks. One tool I have used with my clients is once the space is organized, clean it – make it sparkle. That small task will give you a sense of accomplishment and boost your mental health.

Make a Decision Today, Don’t be the person carrying the cookie tin around the house!

Peace & Harmony ~ Cheryl
