A. For my whole career as a Professional Organizer, I watched people confuse organizing with getting rid of things. When in fact, one has nothing to do with the other. Organizing is about creating systems that make you more efficient. You don’t have to get rid of anything to get organized. As long as you can find what you need when you need it, and are comfortable in your space, then you are organized. Decluttering is about getting rid of the obsolete in your life so you can get unstuck. Throwing things out will not get you organized at all. It will, however, open up space, energy and insight so you can move forward, and proactively manage your way through change. Two totally different processes, with totally different purposes. My early books focused on dispelling the common myths about getting organized. I felt it was time to dispel the myths about decluttering as well. Getting rid of things is profoundly difficult--and I wanted to provide insight into what's holding people back, and what could help them succeed. The answers are in this book: 1-You have to be doing it for the right reason. (to get unstuck; not to get organized) 2-You need to stop thinking of your clutter as "junk"--it's a point of entry--an opportunity to gain insight into an old attachment you are struggling to release. Once you identify it, it's much easier to let it go. 3-Success depends entirely on what you do before and after getting rid of things to ensure lasting results and true transformation. This book, therefore is about way more than getting rid of things. It’s about managing change in a proactive and positive way….using the decluttering process I call SHED as the vehicle for transformation.
