Conclusion > The “Just Do It” Factor

The “Just Do It” Factor

There is only so much that can be done to combat boredom. As I tell my clients, I can address 95% of any organizing problem, including assessing the existing situation, modifying the portions of it that are already working, adding new techniques and products for further improvement, delegating tasks to others when needed, and providing insight into the many psychological factors that impact whether you use your system. We've covered all of that ground in this book, meaning you're 95% of the way there in your goal of having organized finances for life.

The remaining 5% simply requires that you, as the Nike ads used to tell us, “just do it.” This is the part that no one, not even a professional organizer, can do for you. Imagine it like a concert in which you're the star. Almost everything—95%—of what has to happen to make this concert a reality is addressed by a methodology that is already in place: The scheduling, promotion, ticket sales, sound and lighting, backup musicians, and travel arrangements all come together because of careful planning. But there's still that 5% that only you can provide: You have to show up and sing.
