The Psychology of Willy Wonka

I absolutely love Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and the updated and very funny, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory too. I loved the last one so much that I used it as a part of a social psychology class that I taught. Seriously. The students were skeptical at first, but after viewing the movie and discussing the thought provoking questions I raised (yes, they were thought provoking), they fully understood and appreciated the lesson. Okay, that was not my reason for writing today, but this post was inspired by the first version of the movie. At one point in the movie, Willie Wonka says, "We have so much time, and so little to do! Strike that, reverse it". Wouldn't it be nice if the first part was true and we had all the time in the world to get all of the things we need done? Well, we don't, so make sure that you are a great task/time manager. Yeah, I know. I went a long way for this post, didn't I?

About Me

My photo
Washington, DC, United States
I am Dr. Darnita L. Payden, Executive Director/Owner of Dr. DClutter™ Life Management, a division of PreciousOnes™ LLC. I have a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology and over 20 years of experience working to help clients discover their strengths and talents. Having worked as a therapist, college professor, grief specialist and trainer, I have encountered in my journey many of the issues my clients may face. I have a sincere desire to help you find clarity, organization and independence in your life and environments. I know that life can be hectic, but I desire to help my clients bring as much order, peace and enjoyment back into their lives as is possible. What separates me from the norm? I focus on the client from a holistic perspective. I realize that most people desire a functional and an organized life, but may simply need support, understanding and information about why they have the habits or tendencies that have led to disorganization. I do not perform “quick fixes” or provide “one-size-fits-all” guidance, but I strive to provide strategies to my clients that will be life changing and useful for a lifetime. Dr. DClutter™ is a name well earned!!
