Pick One™ System Explained

Most of you seemed to grasp the concept really well. Congratulations!! Didn't I say it was simple?? Each day challenged you to focus on one aspect of your life in four areas and START-start changing, start discussing, or start thinking about your life in a different way. What you did with the challenged area was up to you, but hopefully you decided that if change was necessary to START that day. Day one was about choosing a behavior to focus on and change (or think about or discuss). Day two saw you considering your language. No not learning a foreign one (although that could be a great exercise), but more about the negativity that may have been a hindrance to you and changing your internal and external speech. Day three focused on changing, identifying or discussing your thoughts. Again, negativity to be replaced by more positive and actionable thoughts. Finally, day four was about your physical space. If clutter and disorganization reign in your life, day four's challenge was about starting the process of removing that issue from your life. By picking one "spot" you reduced the likelihood of becoming overwhelmed by a large project and reverting to the old habit of doing nothing because it all seemed too much. Day four made it manageable. See, that wasn't so complicated, was it? While it may have been challenging, as change often is, I hope that the ability to make small changes on a daily basis was helpful and that you will continue to institute the Pick One™ system in your daily life!!

About Me

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!!
