Professional Organizing (KonMari Method™)
Tidying and organizing are powerful tools, but it’s not about the destination. The true goal of tidying is to clear away clutter so you can live the life you want. When you put your house in order using the KonMari Method™, you have no choice but to listen to your inner voice – because the question of what you want to own is actually the question of how you want to live your life. When you reassess your belongings and organize your home, you set the stage for a huge transformation. This is the magic of tidying!
The first step in the KonMari Method™ is to imagine your ideal lifestyle. If you’re serious about tidying in a way that will change your life forever, this is the most important step – it cannot be skipped.Clarify why you want to tidy and what sort of life you want to lead when you’re done: What will your day look like? Who will you surround yourself with? What are your emotional and mental states? These are the sorts of questions to ponder at the beginning of a tidying festival.
Most tidying methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever.
The KonMari Method™ encourages tidying by category – not by location. Going from room to room makes it hard to truly comprehend what you own – and will inevitably lead to a rebound. Beginning with clothes, then moving on to books, papers, komono (miscellaneous items), and, finally, sentimental items. Keep only those things that speak to the heart, and discard items that no longer spark joy. Thank them for their service – then let them go. By starting with the easiest category, you hone your decision-making skills and clarify what sparks joy.
People around the world have been drawn to this philosophy not only due to its effectiveness, but also because it places great importance on being mindful, introspective and forward-looking.
