You enter your home after a long day ready to just relax, but the first thing you see is a pile of clutter. Ugh.
You head to the kitchen to get a snack or start dinner and the collection of random things on the counter tops catches your eye. Ugh.
You go into the family room to watch some television and put your feet up on the coffee table to relax…well you would, but there’s an impassable mountain of books, magazines and paper in your way. Ugh!
You go upstairs to get ready for bed and change into your pajamas only for this simple task to become a complicated, heavy-lifting process in which accessing what’s in your dresser drawers or closet involves a miracle. Ugh!!!!!!!
Every time a pile of clutter catches your attention or gets in your way (or trips you or embarrasses you or angers you), you think to yourself, “I have to go through this…but not now, because I’m too fill-in-the-blank (tired, busy, etc.).” That intention is as far as the organizing actually gets, and the cycle just begins again.
Frustrating, isn’t it?
What if I told you that busting through the never ending sequence of procrastination and perpetual heaps of clutter was not only possible, but with the strategies in this book, almost painless?
What if I told you that one day (not “some day” but one day in the foreseeable future) you could walk into your house and all those debilitating piles of clutter wouldn’t even exist? That your home was a relaxing sanctuary you were proud of and where you could actually unwind?
What if I told you that the days in which the clutter controls you are numbered and that soon you’ll be the one ruling the kingdom? Like royalty, like a boss, like a rock star, like a magical unicorn, you get the idea.
Would you believe me? Maybe not. Would you want to believe me? Yes! That’s why you’re here.
And I'm so glad you are, because it means that you're a fighter, that you're not giving up, that you're going to keep trying no matter what the procrastination monster hurls at you.
Tackle this thing from a new angle and surprise the procrastination right out of existence. Sounds awesome, right?! It is.
"Nealey has broken down conquering procrastination into bite-sized pieces. She offers great ideas for the 10 Procrastination methods discussed in the book and makes organizing sound doable for anyone. I love the comparison of homeless items to zombies roaming the earth! But really, you'll walk away with "Major Takaways" from every chapter that are SO doable! Definitely worth the read."
"Do The Opposite of Nothing is a smart, well written guide on how to eliminate common patterns of action and thinking that cause us to procrastinate on important tasks. Nealey's 10-method approach to identifying underlying issues and her just-the-facts summary of how to implement change using easy take-away actions is easily understood and immediately actionable - and makes so much sense! I especially love her breezy writing style and her use of so many relatable examples will help you visualize change for yourself. The best takeaway for me was that ultimately we still may not like doing certain things but by using her approach we will be more motivated to work on them. With more than a dozen links to helpful resources and a downloadable cheat-sheet for implementing her tips, this is a great value!"
