Workshop: Organizing as Self-Discovery

I’m putting together a brand new workshop on the happiness that can ensue from approaching organizing as self-discovery. Not just looking at “time management” and “space management” as burdensome chores, but investigating what’s behind what you call clutter.
Have you ever thought of getting organized as embarking on a treasure hunt? When you assume the role of detective, you look for clues about the personality who lives and works in your house/office/studio and what’s important to that individual. And when you think in terms of your current priorities, it’s much easier to make decisions about what to keep and what to let go.
It’s also easier and more fun to think about how to preserve what has the most meaning. What do you want to pass down to your family? What would you like your legacy to be?
In essence – What can you learn about yourself from your stuff? In the days to come I’ll be sharing some questions, answers, tips and suggestions on how to approach the “back-to-school” organizing season.
