By considering the effects of inaction, you'll realize that that the potential positive outcomes can far outweigh perceived risks. First, you have to be willing to experiment and live intentionally rather than out of habit. To live intentionally you are able to become aware of the things that are most important. Listen to the possibilities in this Professional Organizing class in how you can improve your life through finally choosing what stays and what goes. Learn why you can't keep your house tidy. Listen to ways in which your decision making to discard or keep objects has a bit to do with your personality and mostly to do with inaction. In this class, you’ll be taught to visualize your space within your home walls and finish with discarding. I have seven years of experience in professional organizing my family, friends, and for hire. My most recent five-month class at the Kemmerer Senior Center was well attended and valued by its attendees. Refreshments and homemade snacks will be provided. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Communications Arts with an emphasis in Public Relations.
