Get Organized Wizard Testimonials

Thanks so much for your kind response to me yesterday. I am encouraged by your note and suggestions!!! I stayed up late printing many items you flagged for me. I hope I can make some progress this week. Thank you for your help!

Kathy

I thought the 21-day Simplify Your Life Challenge was useful. Going through the process makes you think about how to live more comfortably.

Courtne

The last seven days for me has been a journey of learning how I operate best. I am applying the concept to my life and will continue to do so as they are not automatic yet.

Darlene

Man!  Your lists have been invaluable to me.  I manage six (6) hotels for a total of 540 rooms on Fort Bragg and I have a ‘To Do’ List for each building of things that need o get done.  The priority block was a big help too.  Instead of guessing which task to do and hedging back and forth on the decisions, the priority block assistsme in that area and I stick to the priority.  I love them and I’m glad I found your website.

Paul

So excited to get started. I have been pretty good the last few years following you and slowing getting organized, but I usually fall off the wagon and give up. I think these weekly missions will be just what I need to stay on track and finally get fully organized.

Susan

Thank you doesn’t seem to be enough, but somehow I know that you understand the difference you make in sharing your insights, ideas and strategies that you have implemented in your own life . You have made a difference in mine, I understand I take the steps to do the work but with your guidance. I like you being part of my team.

Fiona

I am just about done with 21 days to simplify my life and It has made a big difference in my life. I had all the tools this just brought it all together. I can’t wait to see how my life will be after a year of taking all these courses. Books don’t work for me- this does.

Sheenah

I am just writing to thank you for the access to Organise Your Life and Goals workbook, it is a lovely resource and very helpful.

Sue

I find out very hard not to get into self flagellation when I can’t even stick to one even small goal. I keep moving the goal posts. I find that achieving mini goals like doing these tasks can help me achieve more.

Dean

Done. 30 min on treadmill. I wouldn’t have done it without this challenge.
 

Jennifer

This is a great way to motivate myself to move off the couch!!
 

Lynda

In just two days, I have seen such an improvement in how quickly I can see my clothes and pick out something to wear! Love this!

Carolyn

My wardrobe is looking fantastic, I love the way I can see things!

Natalie

Loving this closet challenge! Thanks Michele!

Miki

It’s amazing how my closet looks now. Thanks so much for all these tips and ideas. I feel like I’m winning over this closet clutter at last!

Pat

A Perfect Closet! Thank you SO much for holding my virtual hand every step of the way! And now a perfect wish list! I really do not need many additions because subtracting the clutter helped me discover the fundamentals that I will now respect and treasure. And, now these essentials in my closet are visible and easy to reach in and grab and go! Bliss!

Julieanne

A perfectly organised, visible and fun closet now! What a great place to be at! Thank you so much Michele!

Vesna

So this exercise was my ground zero moment in untangling the roots of my behaviors… You truly help us with these guided introspective looks at our behaviors and motivators. Thank you again!

Gail

Thanks for an amazing 7 days! I’m off on my own this week…but I will be checking in here periodically to make sure I don’t forget things!

Donna

Thanks! I desperately needed this! It was worth it for yesterday alone! I never allow myself “wiggle room” and it was such a revelation that my needs/desires/etc can and should change over time. Why wouldn’t I want to work on different things and make time for different things! I know it sounds crazy…but I think I get so wrapped up that I don’t see past the pile on my desk! 
Thanks again! 

Donna

My husband thinks that the Life and Goal Organizer should be called the Motivational Steroid. It has helped find my motivation and inspiration, and I’ve found energy for life. The modules have helped me track all of my personal goals and finally I feel like I am able to focus.

Rather than stressing about the pressures of starting my business, I can now focus on tackling those pressures in a constructive way, but still find precious time for my 2 year old son and my husband.

 Truly I want to thank you. …This is one of only three “light bulb” moments in the past 11 years.

Michelle

For anyone on the fence about doing this program, I encourage you to go for it. I did it with Michele a couple of years ago and found it wonderful. I lost 6 pounds during the 30 day program, and another 4 pounds after that. Although exercise is a regular part of my life, I’m not someone who loses weight easily, so that says a lot. Plus I have managed to keep all the weight off. 

Ellen

Wow! I loved reading this…it is just a huge relief! Sometimes I think I just have to get everything perfect…but that is just an illusion. Thank you for freeing me from this ridiculous notion.

Sandra

Thank you for this virtual mentoring! I am so grateful for the way you steward your gifts as they bring an unquantifiable catalyst for change to so many!!!

Gail Lujan Zollo

Thank you thank you thank you! I am in a season of big transitions and all these tools that are available to me through my recently purchases premium subscription and these new offerings ahead are going to be priceless in helping me chart a course that is more purposeful and systemic! I am truly delighted! 

Gail Lujan Zollo

 I’m very encouraged! I purchased Organize in 5 and Goals + Priorities Diary. Both have been helping me make progress in 2014!

Beth Hargrave

I love my G&P Diary! I’ve filled out my 20 goals for the year and now I am scheduling my tasks for January. Awesome product!

Jenny Dela Cruz

I’m so excited to get organized with your help! Thank you for making it so simple and easy!

Jasmine Bowe

These are wonderful tips, Michelle! Thank you. I have tried really hard to make changes recently in terms of decluttering and organizing. It seemed so daunting to think of what to get rid of and where to put what we want to keep. But oddly, I suddenly became better at these tasks. It seems to take me much less time to tackle a space and organize it. I feel so happy that 2014 might finally be the year we start off with a completely organized home 🙂 Thank you for sharing so much with us and giving us effective tools to make our lives simpler 🙂
 
 

Leticia Rodriguez

This last challenge is an amazing finish to the 21 days… The opening lines of today’s challenge were so amazing that I have pasted them at the top of my Evernote page and I am going to post them beside my DSSN index cards (which I distribute throughout the house, in random places, so I can’t get away from them 🙂 ). These lines remind me WHY I need to DSSN: if I DSSN the work and chores, and DSSN the fun stuff, both bring amazing rewards! 
 

Kim Scofield

Hi Michele, just wanted to say that you have made me much more organised. My natural instinct is to want to do all of your programs but have realised that I just do what I need, and it really helps :o) I am really looking forward to the 2014 Goals and Priorities Diary and Organise in 5 diary as I use those all the time. Many thanks, as always :o)
 
 

Judith Cochrane

WOW! What a liberating experience. Goodwill is going to like me. I even found things that are back in style again (too bad I’m not). This is fun!

Pat Kriz

In just two days, I have seen such an improvement in how quickly I can see my clothes and pick out something to wear! Love this!

Carolyn Rohrer

Loving this closet challenge! Thanks Michele!

Miki Slusser Bennett

Oh bliss of all areas being organised now! My wardrobe has never ever looked like this good! I am so incredibly happy with this outcome! And all of it in 9 days. 

Vesna Kraus

What fun tasks Michele! It’s a wonderful reward after persevering, getting through all the mess (physical and emotional), letting go and sorting ourselves out.

Vesna Kraus

A Perfect Closet! Thank you SO much for holding my virtual hand every step of the way! And now a perfect wish list! I really do not need many additions because subtracting the clutter helped me discover the fundamentals that I will now respect and treasure. And, now these essentials in my closet are visible and easy to reach in and grab and go! Bliss!

Julieanne Winters

A perfectly organised, visible and fun closet now! I bought a few missing pieces over the last few weeks and am simply enjoying this space so much. What a great place to be at! Thank you so much Michele!

 
 

Vesna Kraus

 I haven’t completed everything yet, but I am committed to putting everything away and have been for the last week or so. What a difference. I’d like to say ‘thank you’ to Michele and everyone who posted on here with their tips and suggestions. It all helped me.

Pat Kriz

I actually enjoy putting everything away as it is easy now. Everything has its place, there is enough space, things are not squashed or falling out. And it only takes a few seconds to put everything away! 

Vesna Kraus

I really enjoyed doing your decluttering ‘journey’ Michele. The process has altered my thinking somewhat and I’ve found I’m readily parting with other stuff/clutter more readily thatn I was before I did your course! Let’s hope it continues! Many thanks, Anne.

Anne Dudzinski

The mindshift questions were helpful and gave me some interesting insights. And I really appreciate your tough-love approach, Michele 🙂

Ellen Darwood

Just the kick in the pants I needed. Feels great to have a clean place to sit and enjoy.
 
 

Jennifer Lahita Johnson

The 10 minute exercise was amazing, deceptively simple! 

Osie Gabriel Adelfang

I really like these programs of yours. I never get around to do all the days in a row, but I like that I can do them when it suits my schedule. Thank you.

Marianne Svahn

Loving the feeling of decluttering – it’s a lot like having extra freedom.
 
 

Lynda Byrne

This program was just the push I needed to start to get my place back in shape – especially after the toll of years of on-and-off renovations. Although I still have more decluttering to do (and so I will repeat the tasks for the different rooms) my home looks better than it has in a long time. More importantly, it feels more serene. Which means, so do I 🙂 Thanks, Michele!

Ellen Darwood

It’s been several months since I first went through this program. Just want to tell you that you are awesome and you’ve solved the productivity problem. This works for everyone! Great stuff and thanks!

Steve Creps

What a wonderful AH-HA moment! I never looked at it that way with the tasks or activities I was doing. Many of them were actually illusions of magical when it came to some of my priorities. And it explains why for those I was dead~on with why I was successful with that particular priority. I do agree with the fear factor – that was so helpful of you to point out. Thank you! Excited for tomorrow’s lesson! I am learning so much.

Robin Stirpe Althoff

I found Step 1 illuminating, I have never looked at procrastination that way. I have loved the class and the exercises made me look at a few things from a different angle. There have been some real ah-ha moments and eye openers too… Thanks for the ride!

Deborah Harowitz

Thank you so much, Michele, for this great week! 7 days was the perfect amount of time to allow me to focus and commit. The energy I feel from doing my magic activities gives me the momentum to get more done in those other life areas as well, and I’m definitely happier and more productive. Amazing 🙂

Michele Whittington Berryman

Great program Michele! You have provided some great tools and given me something to focus on on a daily basis that I didn’t think about before this course. Daily focus will turn to habit.

Tami Philbert

I like the idea of empowering myself rather than being the victim of the procrastination monster. Thank you so much for this program, it is already helping tremendously.

Corrine Harpster

All of a sudden I feel as if a ten tonne weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I feel in control again, not guilty and useless. I am making positive decisions abut my time and priorities and how much I can cope with right now given every thing else going on in my life. Thank you Michele.

Debbie

Most of the issues I have had over the past few years I have not been able to label or clearly find a reason why I could not just start to take action on anything. I started self help reading and stumbled across your site and realised that the dreaded “P” word was the the underlying issue to everything. Your programs really resonated with me as they were in easy and manageable chunks and actually talked in my language! So I thought I have nothing to lose and started working through some of your programs and the feeling of empowerment has been unbelievable and really gave me the “get up and go” to follow on to the next program. I actually look forward to the next days item to have to do and feel like Michele is my personal self-help coach. The “P” word reading will be very interesting and I’m sure I will find more “keys to the door.

Natalie Lane

I am wiping down my desk and looking at the good work achieved which means finally after many years trying to get organised I used this 7 Day plan (ok – it actually took me 14 days) and I am just applying the finishing touches. Thanks Michele – I am now going to to start on my wardrobe. I am so inspired that even my children are starting to join in!

Natalie Lane

I never imagined I could get so much out of a 21-day program. It has made me more aware of my personal roadblocks and given me strategies for managing them. I’ve started to develop new habits that are helping me feel better organized and less overwhelmed. Thank you for this wonderful program and for your expertise, insights, and support, Michele. I also want to say thanks to Kylie, your community manager, for her support and encouragement and to the other participants for sharing their journeys and strategies.

Ellen Darwood

Thank you for this awesome challenge! … Going through this has lifted soo much weight off my shoulders! I feel much more focused and organized. I mentioned elsewhere that I feel I can live and savor the immediate moments in my life because I don’t have to focus all the time on what I should be doing. There is now a time for everything 🙂 You have helped set me on the right track to finally reach some of the goals I have set for myself year after year. Thank you so very much!

Lety Rdgz

This was such a terrific challenge Michele – thank you so very much. I can truly say this has improved my life significantly 🙂 Not everything is purged – yet, but everything is organised and ready for it. I love my clean, organised office ♥  7 Days To An Organized Home Office

Jorja Willis

Michele. I just got the Organize Your Life and Goals Workbook Planner! That is awesome! I can’t put it down. Just what I needed! Keep up the good work!

Newsletter

Michele, just wanted to say thank you for your fab advice and excellent work. I have a very busy business that seems to consume my time but have managed to get a little break over this holiday and am now looking at your time management strategies and have put a couple of things into my planning that should make a big difference.

Judith Cochrane

I just started reading some of your posts and comments people have made and went into your website and just loved it…the way you write, your tips, some hilarious sayings and quotes and your comments on happiness and how going into action makes us so happy. Lots of food for thought as I comtemplate my own life which felt like I had lost direction till I read that wonderful Oscar Wilde quote  🙂

Cate Williams

Michele, thank you DEARLY for the inspiring contribution & value that you add to my life 😉

Shirene Botes

I love your site and advice. Thank you for inspiring me to simplify!

Tenika Chavis

Thank you so much for making your ideas available to us and easy access! Your ideas are fantastic. I just broke out the 30 Day Organizer and will be starting that soon for the often neglected areas…utensil drawers, closets & cupboards.

Christina Miller

More progress today, and I am so happy! I’m really grateful for your program Michele, it’s terrific. Thank you!

Jorja Wills

I have been motivated in the right direction and your ideas have certainly helped! In particular you showed the role that indecision plays in accumulation. The idea that I might be able to change that habit is very liberating!

Kit Otto

Thanks for making this simple! There are plenty of these type of plans out there but I needed KISS, Keep It Simple, Sweetie. The best part for me was “Move fast. Don’t over-think.” That’s me in a nutshell; dwell, dwell, dwell. I am very fond of gentle nudges and yours are the best!

Glenna Peterson

I love YOU, Michele–for guiding me through this process! I just posted after pictures to pinterest–some of the changes appear small, but they are in fact HUGE! I mean, eating breakfast on the kitchen bar instead of having it covered with office stuff? GREAT! And having the printer in the same room where I work on the computer–now, that was a great idea:) And having the file box for bills and other paper at the same spot we drop all the mail…I am so excited! Thanks so much for all the help:) And I have also enjoyed the comments and processes of the other folks–some of their ideas prompted me to make some changes in my processes. THANKS! I will be doing other challenges 🙂

Ann Waddle

This has been a very liberating experience for me! I still have more papers to go through and file or dispense with, but I AM getting there! Doing this and the Declutter Your Wardrobe program last year has changed how I deal with “stuff “, which is a great feeling! Thanks Michele!

Anne Dudzinski

Michele, as I continue this massive purging, I am thinking about the fact that twice in the past I have hired a professional organizer to come in and help and advise me. Both suggested all kinds of systems… (the 2nd one actually found that the systems were there) but neither suggested this first step of purging! And it is not only having the step but supporting us with the logic that allows us to get rid of it when coming up with reasons for why to keep all this stuff. It has been gut wrenching and I could probably use a little therapy as a result :-), but I know that it is going to change my life when it’s done! Thank you!

Terri Beeler

This was an OUTSTANDING program Michele! Thank you so much for all your wonderful ideas/tips/instructions, I am forever grateful that I was able to rid myself of so much extra weight/stuff we don’t need/want anymore. More time to enjoy life with the things I do care about! 🙂

Shari Santella

Jessica Hart

“I have NEVER seen such beautiful and easy to use forms on PDF. I’m loving working with your documents and information. Thank you.”

Deb Wood

“I literally did with my first mission what I really thought i would never be able to do. God do i feel wonderful, powerful, accomplished right now… you played an integral role in giving me tools to begin my day off with a blaze of optimism, accomplishment, and all the good stuff I said above.”

Harry Panitch

“I purchased the Premium Pack about 2 weeks ago and I’m almost finished going through the 12 areas of my life. I am so focused, almost addicted, to the program that I just want to keep going.”

Karen Perkins

“I purchased the Premium Pack about 2 weeks ago and I’m almost finished going through the 12 areas of my life. I am so focused, almost addicted, to the program that I just want to keep going.”

“I am so pleased with the Life & Goal Organizer. Working through each module gives me great satisfaction, even a sense of power, empowerment. All my goals and mini steps or prompts are written down in one place. It’s actually fun creating an up to date record of exactly where I’m at and what I need to do next. “

Harry Panitch

You are awesome Michele, my life has changed because of you. Your de-clutter tips have been fabulous. I even have my FBook friends doing it too.

Mandy

“Life & Goal Organizer has given me a new perspective on how to reach my greatest potential in all areas.”

Maryanne Long

I have found $5,500 in savings in household expenses! The $100 cost for the package has already paid for itself 55 times over!!

Naomi Murphy

“Not too long thereafter, Michele offered her Goals and Priorities Diary and I downloaded it to my PC and began to see whether it would work for me. I quickly realized that it was a fabulous tool! It provides the ability for both long and short term planning. It allows me to make plans for a day, a week, a quarter, or an entire year. The best lesson, however, was learning to identify, accomplish and check off the Top 3 Priorities for each day.”

Laura L. Bieker

“Congratulations on such a fantastic offering. I have spent all weekend going through the organizer. Posititve changes have already been made. For example I have found $5,500 in savings in household expenses! The $100 cost for the package has already paid for itself 55 times over!!”

Naomi Murphy

“Because LGO maintains both comprehensiveness AND specific task-setting, it has enabled me to make sense of my messy life. When I sit down with your worksheets, I feel good, relieved… I cannot describe how powerful it is to shift focus from what’s WRONG with one’s present life, to instead place the final meaning on the question of ‘What is it that I want, and by what method do I mean to get there?”

Skye Synnestvedt

Because LGO maintains both comprehensiveness AND specific task-setting, it has enabled me to make sense of my messy life. When I sit down with your worksheets, I feel good, relieved… I cannot describe how powerful it is to shift focus from what’s WRONG with one’s present life, to instead place the final meaning on the question of ‘What is it that I want, and by what method do I mean to get there?…I just wanted to take the time to write you and thank you for the great service you have done for my life. I’d like to think there are others like me whose quiet lives of desperation might be saved by the totally unique function that your product offers. There is no other one like it: I’ve searched long and hard.”

Skye Synnestvedt

“Just a quick email to say how pleased I am that I purchased the Life & Goal Organizer and extra goodies (Premium Pack).”
“I was a bit dubious before purchasing but… I thought I would give it a go.”
“I have to say I can’t stop going through the Life & Goal Organizer, absolutley love the concept and already feel I am making changes in ONE DAY!!“

“Again congratulations on such a fantastic offering. I have spent all weekend going through the organizer. Posititve changes have already been made. For example I have found $5,500 in savings in household expenses ! The $100 cost for the package has already paid for itself 55 times over!!”

Naomi Murphy

“In September, 2010, I went from working for a company, to becoming an independent business owner within a matter of days. Although it was a great move, it was also a sudden, unexpected and to say the least, scary transition. I’ve been blessed to be a pretty organized person in the past, but becoming a “stand-alone” so quickly had potential to be overwhelming and I found my to-do lists getting out of control.”

“Not too long thereafter, Michele offered her Goals and Priorities Diary and I downloaded it to my PC and began to see whether it would work for me. I quickly realized that it was a fabulous tool! It provides the ability for both long and short term planning. It allows me to make plans for a day, a week, a quarter, or an entire year. I loved the fact that it has a separate section for appointments and calls/e-mails. The best lesson, however, was learning to identify, accomplish and check off the Top 3 Priorities for each day. This kept me focused on what was important, and doing them first…..whether they were tasks that I loved or disliked greatly, the point was to do them first!!!”

“At times throughout the year, I would find myself spinning out of control with my days and tasks, and when this occurred, I would usually notice that I hadn’t been using the Goals and Priorities Diary the way I should. Going back to it, and utilizing it, typically got me back on track quickly and painlessly. I’ve even found it useful if I need to find when I did a particular thing, or what date a specific appointment had been on, as it is easily searchable.”

“The Diary is an icon in the center of my PC desktop, and is one of the first tools that I open every day. I hope that it works as well for you as it has for me!!! Thank you, Michele, for this great asset to both my professional and personal life!”

Laura L. Bieker, REALTOR, e-PRO, GRIABR

“Ok, so I started, I walked and filled. Suddenly I noticed, the bag was dragging and was bursting at the seams. Huh, ok another bag. Hey my 30 minutes is up, still I can’t stop now I’m just into the swing of things. So on and on and on. 4.5 hours later, 6 bags….and I haven’t even been into my garage yet. Hey this was a wonderful task, not only did I feel I uncluttered my home, I feel more room in my brain too.

John

“Love, love, LOVE the Get Organized site, and the brilliant lists. You made me a very happy girl today.”

Merije VinkThe Netherlands

I came across your web site while looking for some organization/goal setting plans for my sons. I am a firm believer in goal setting and feel that organization/time management/goal setting are educational areas that are lacking in our schools these days. Your organizational tools are wonderful and very easy for young people to understand and learn.”

Steve Tames

“The thing I like most about it is that, for a list-maker like me, it’s irresistible: when I’ve made a list I just have to cross everything off it. In December I started on the household and got so much done… On xmas day I started with health & fitness and am very motivated.”

Nicki HutleySenior Economist

I did it!! I threw away 40-50 pounds of junk! Thanks for giving me permission to throw away clothes. I hate throwing clothes in the trash, would rather give to charity. But I didn’t want them and who else would?? NOBODY! That’s why it is trash! Thanks. BTW- you are my husband’s new best friend.”

Melissa

“Organized my presentation. I managed to clear out clothes that don’t fit, are too old, as well as shoes, jewelry. I pared things down to the point that what I have left fits well, looks good and I love to wear. This has been a most successful site for me. Thank you.”

Marti

“Just letting you know thanks to your de-clutter ebook I am purging today and am up to 12 garbage bags of clothes ad 3 garbage bags of shoes!!! And it feels GREAT!!!”

“What you provide is really helpful to me. I’ve had ADD all my life – and I’m able to organize better with your methods than any other.”
