Top 10 Things to Get You Organized for the New Year

The most important thing you can do in order to ensure your organizing success in the new year is to NOT put it on your New Year's Resolution list.  That's right, do NOT put it on your list.  Do not vow to get organized, do not put it on your top New Year's Goal , and do not vaguely say "I'm going to get better organized this year."  Why, you ask?  Because according to a survey by Franklin Covey, 35% of all resolutions are abandoned by the end of January and 75% are inactive by the end of the year.  So, why set yourself up for failure?  You do not need the excuse of it being the New Year in order to get more organized. 
We are also going to try something a bit different for this post.  I am going to go ahead and list the Top 10 Things to Get You Organized for the New Year, but I am also going to link to the podcast explaining each step!  This way you can read, listen and get yourself on track!
Take a listen to the Let's Talk Organizing Podcast!
