I am always impressed by my glossy-eyed and eager clients who are ready for homework! Some even ask for it!
But do they do it...Not always, and that is ok.
Ignore the List:
I admit, this does happen frequently, and it is ok. Some people hire an organizer for the simple time and accountability equation. If they are scheduling someone to help them, they will show up and get it done, and that is the only way progress will happen. That is ok.
Work the list:
Many folks will get some homework done. The longer between sessions the more likely it will not get completed.
I am always really proud of clients who get their homework completed. It is like a proud parent moment! I also feel like they are getting closer to actualizing their dreams of getting organized, because finishing their homework levels them up!
Think of it as a math equation, if working with an organizer=1, and homework=1...then working with an organizer and getting your homework done would =2? Nope! It is far more! Working with an organizer AND on your own is like a multiplier! The important piece to remember is that working with an organizer, you are learning skills to transfer to organizing on your own. If you work with an organizer, and then put those skills into practice on your own, you will be further ahead, not just on the project itself, but because you are developing your skills faster and will sooner be more independently successful at organizing your own spaces.
