You're not alone if you're struggling to stay on top of your organization and dig out from the clutter.

The good news is it's doable to find the motivation to get organized with tools and resources to help you get there.

Get started with some of these quotes on organization to inspire your day.

1) "For every minute spent organizing an hour is earned." (Anonymous)

Whether you're a business owner, teacher, or just struggling to organize, you already know time is among our most valuable assets. We can't get more time in our day, so it's essential to create systems and processes to stay on top of clutter, organize our day, and stay on track. Start with one of our daily planners with hourly time slots, must-dos for the day, track your fitness goals, meal planning, a notes section, and more. You can block out time for organizing specific rooms, your work clutter, or just time to take a walk.

2. "The best way to get something done is to begin." (Unknown)

Figuring out how to begin something can lead to analysis paralysis and indecision. We plan our day only to get stuck taking those first steps.

If you're feeling overwhelmed, simplify your tasks and start with easy tasks on your to-do list, like washing the dishes or throwing out your junk mail. As you work through straightforward, actionable steps, you'll gain the momentum to address more complex tasks. Instead of an unruly to-do list, start with our Do First notepad for quick wins.

3. "Clutter is nothing more than postponed decisions." (Barbara Hemphill)

Piles of papers, clothes, and projects are often signs of postponing something to get some relief. You may want more time at the end of the day or feel guilty about a task left undone.

Finally face your clutter by addressing one area of your room, like a desk drawer or kitchen cabinet. Work through your task at hand diligently for 20 minutes and set a timer to stay hyper-focused. When you're done, you can scratch it off your list and move on to the next task or save it for tomorrow for a simple, stress-free way to de-clutter.
