I am all about living in the moment and being present and staying open to the future. Sometimes though, you have to think a head when wanting to start something. For example, you want to edit your cluttered living room. You need to think about how you are going to do that within that space. Can you successfully organize in that space? do you have places to put things? The other rooms in the house might be cluttered as well. You want to think this out and work smarter not harder.
One thing i ask my clients to do is envision the end result. Imagine what the living room would look like after its organized. What do you think you want in the room. THEN you can start to connect the dots between now and getting to the end result.
