#1 Question I get these days is, “How do you find the time?”
Truthfully you will never find the time unless you know your WHY.
Why do you want to get organized? What will it feel like? What will all of this mean to your creative flow? When you know the answer to that you’ll find your how.
There are so many reasons I work on organizing my photos on a regular basis. Here are a few of my WHYs that will hopefully give you a jumpstart to find your own:
- For my creativity – I want to be able to quickly find the images I need when inspiration strikes. When an idea comes or memory flickers I want to quickly be able to find the exact images to tell that story. When a child asks about a family member or their own life at a certain age, I want to be able to find everything that answers that question in seconds. Having an organized library prepares me to be a better memory sharer.
- For my children – I want them to inherit our family photos and memories pre-organized so they can spend more time living, loving and curating their own.
- Have Less, Do Less, Be More – Having an organized library with less photos that more meaningful tell my story, means I have to DO LESS to share and preserve memories which in the end means I get to BE in MORE memories. It’s all about living…
If you really want to find your HOW – get in touch with your WHYs and make a fun little scrapbook page talking about your WHY. Make it your computer desktop image so every time you start it up you are reminded WHY you want to be organized.
Once you find your WHY it will lead you to your HOW. How isn’t as hard as you think – especially when you make it happen in 20 minute pockets of time you can find everyday.
In my next post I’ll be sharing more about HOW to find the time. I’m hoping this week you will work on your WHY and share it in the comments…
Happy Holiday Weekend!
