Practice Patience

“You’re not going to organize your house in a weekend,” says Amanda LeBlanc, a Birmingham, Alabama-based organizer and Style Network star, so don’t stress if you can’t finish by Monday. Though it’s natural to want to get it all done yesterday, “you'll be much happier doing this slow and steady. It’s going to take time,” she says. So prioritize, be realistic and be sure to break projects down into smaller, manageable tasks. By building on each success, you’ll boost your confidence and gain the motivation you need to keep going.
