"Clothes" Minded

I truly do my best to live the life I teach, so since you've asked, this is a picture of one of my closets (yes, I said "one of"-SMILE). It's pretty full, but remember, I aim for "function" over "perfection and pretty". I'm very low-tech (and low budget when necessary), so can you guess what I used for the dividers on the shelf?

If you ask a favor (and it's granted) and are given a specific time frame for completion, are you allowed to become irritated if you procrastinate yourself out of the favor?

Some things I chose to remember. Other things I chose to set reminders to "remember". Helps me keep as much "free space" in my head as possible for the really important information.

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!!
