Organizing – Hitting the Wall

Things have been progressing well as I work through the assignments given by my professional organiser. Most of my things are sorted and some are put away. My space is starting to feel comfortable and usable. But I am hitting the wall. I hear the voice in my head saying ‘Isn’t this good enough? Do you really have any more time to waste on this?’
I look at my almost organised space, and at the 9 crates with incomplete projects from the last few weeks and I realise that I have been using the chaos and my habitual lack of finishing as a shield. As the reason for not operating at full power, for not putting my work out there to be judged. Once the chaos is tamed there will be no more excuses.

Yesterday I posted on scoutie girl that passion is scary and overwhelming.  I think that is because of how I am feeling right now, in this project.  I have gotten to this point, organizing myself so many times, and given up.  But this time I have back up.  I know if I want to finish this time I need to call Claudia for help.  She told me at the start that people are never disorganized because they are lazy.  That there is always a good reason.  I guess I just found mine. 

Is getting organised going to make me a better artist?

February Goals

Already a 12th of the way through the year!  January has been a good month for me to evaluate where my business is going, and to make plans.  This month I am focused on getting all the old business from last year wrapped up so I can move on my goals for this year.  specifically

Continue with my stash reduction project from January.  Things are going well!

Get all my tax paperwork in order  and to the accountant, and get all my old paperwork filed.

Now that I am beginning to make inroads on my stash I see a clear need to overhaul the way I have been storing my supplies.   I will be working with a friend who is a Professional Organiser to figure out how I function in my workspace, and store things accordingly. ( I will be blogging about that for sure!)

Get my new designs finalised and available to purchase.

 I have one other goal that I have been procrastinating on for a while.  I want to find one or two local stores to wholesale to.  I plan on going to visit some of the higher end beach communities and browse though some stores to find some that seem like a good fit, and then approach them  about wholesale for the summer.
