A Booster Shot of Guilt

I have a client who calls working with me “a booster shot of guilt.” Not that I say or do anything to prompt her feelings of guilt; it's that she feels bad for letting things deteriorate to their current condition.

She has a great sense of humor and we laugh a lot when we work together. (She regularly asks me if I’ve found the Hope Diamond when I’m sorting her things. And, yes, she encouraged me to share all this with you.)

I thought about her “booster shot” comment when I saw this blog post from lifehacker. It explains what Professional Organizers really do and how you can benefit from working with one of us.

One of my favorite quotes from the piece is
There's more to being a professional organizer than just tossing down three bins marked "keep," "trash," and "donate," and there's more to their job than making IKEA shopping trips with your credit card in tow.

As Julie Bestry notes
Professional organizers are trained, skilled specialists who help people create order where it is lacking in their lives, so that they can make long-term improvements and keep disorder at bay.

The post is long, but it has lots of good information about working with a Professional Organizer. One of the qualities that distinguishes my style is that I attempt to make the process fun. You can be playful and productive at the same time. Whether or not you discover the Hope Diamond in one of your piles.

When you encounter things you’ve done that just don’t seem to make sense, do you despair or do you try to find humor in the absurd?
