Most people who ask me for help have tried to get organised before. It might have been through books, TV shows, courses or help from family and friends.
I am not a great believer in ‘self-help books’. They are mostly from America and let’s face it, over the big ditch, there is a completely di
fferent lifestyle to here in Australia. Does any Aussie really have a basement and a TV in the kitchen?
Books can give good advice but are not tailored to your situation. TV shows do the same, although they can sometimes get people going and motivated.
Friends and family… you love them too much to take their advice with the necessary distance. They love you too much to be honest and constructive. Friends and family can also be judgemental and make you feel ashamed of your living arrangement.
In the end it is you who must be ready, willing and trusting to hire a PO and start your journey to a better life with less mess.
But once you decided to engage the help of a PO, you can hold us accountable to be there with you all the way with integrity, compassion and a great outcome for you in mind.
