Aim lower.

“The perfect is the enemy of the good.”  Voltaire.

Set aside perfection.
Abandon your inner Pinterest wanna be.

Aim for small improvements, little changes.

Don’t worry about eating off the floor. Start with being able to see the floor!

Sometimes people wait to declutter and organize until 
they have a whole day to work on the project, 
or they have the perfect storage containers, 
or they purchase another bookcase.

Realistically, you can find an hour to work on one area.
Realistically, matching baskets look nice but won’t solve the problem.
Realistically, you will be less cluttered if you sort the books you already own.

It’s okay to lower your expectations from perfect to good.
(and much more likely that you’ll arrive in that place.)

Accept that you only have a limited amount of time, energy and interest.
Remember who and what is most important in your life.

Having a color coded, neatly lined up sock drawer would be perfect.
But unnecessary.
Having a drawer where socks live, and are easy to access.
That’s good!

Let good be perfect.
