stop, focus, notice
My philosophy is to “Stop, Focus and Notice”.
I ask clients to STOP what they are doing. You can’t keep doing the same thing over and over again and expect a different result.
I then ask them to FOCUS on the problem or issue. What is it? Name it, write it down and work through it on paper.
Then I ask clients to NOTICE everything about the problem or issue. Why does it annoy or upset them? Are other people involved? Talk to them about it. Explain it. How it makes everyone feel. What options are there to change it? Could you use something you already have in your home to solve the problem?
Visit the stories section to view the “Stop, Focus, Notice” process in action.
I contacted Bridget because I wanted help to declutter my life but didn’t know where to start! Bridget made it very easy and made me see my things as… well, just things!
Her friendly and supportive guidance through this process has been invaluable in helping me set timeframes and structures to get the tasks done as well as being available for approachable virtual help when needed. Even when she’s not available, I can hear her encouraging voice in my head giving advice and asking the questions I need to ask myself! I’m still learning but I’m thankful that I’ll have Bridget in my corner if I ever get stuck!
Working with Bridget has been an amazing experience. She encouraged and held me accountable throughout our coaching series in turning my vision into reality.
With her constant support and positive energy, I was able to sort out my time and energy-draining clutter and become crystal clear on what direction I want to take my business and life. I still refer back to some of the conversations we’ve had. I can highly recommend working with Bridget. She is very authentic, uplifting and nudges you in the right direction when you feel stuck. Her passion for coaching and helping others in de-cluttering their life shines through. You will be amazed at what you can achieve when you free yourself of all the chitter-chatter clutter.
Bridget has been such a breath of fresh air in our kitchen. We were the typical household that had simply accumulated a lot of “stuff” over the years.
Bridget was very approachable and non-judgemental which was so lovely. I didn’t even know where to start and it all seemed too overwhelming. We now have a much more functional kitchen with a lot less clutter. She had many great space saving ideas and despite having a small kitchen I now actually have storage and bench space! I also loved her advice on making a 1% change in my life. So achievable. Thank you, Bridget, for all of the encouragement, advice and making life simpler.
Never been op shopping? Here is why you should try it!
This week on Instagram I shared these pictures of my op shop purchases (Some people call them thrift shops but here in South Australia we call them op shops). I asked in my Instagram stories “Have you been to an op shop lately?” and 20% of respondents said yes. I would LOVE for that number to be higher so I’m on a mission to demystify op shops and open your minds to shopping in op shops rather than just dropping stuff off at them.
