Being Real in the New Year

Happy New Year!
The holidays are over and 2008 is now here. Are you ready? Or just relieved to have survived yet another hectic season of celebrating, eating and amassing more stuff?!?
I love January because it represents a fresh start, a new beginning. Many people vow that this is going to be the year they get organized, lose 50 pounds and/or stop smoking. Tackling new behaviors and setting goals is a wonderful way to usher in the New Year.
In our business, January is usually a very busy month. People are ready to focus on making changes; many people tell us they want to start living a new life and getting organized is part of that plan.  It probably won't surprise you that January is National Get Organized Month.
As you think of the changes you hope to make in 2008, my best advice to you is to be real. Be real with yourself. Be real with the goals you're setting. And be real with the timeframe you're hoping to accomplish these goals in.
A few examples of realistic organizing projects  might include cleaning out the garage so you can park in it, setting up an effective filing system so you can easily find the necessary paperwork for your tax returns, or taking the time to teach your kids how to do their own laundry.
Check back here next week where I'll continue writing about realistic New Year's goals.
Here's to being real!
