    It was friendly, practical, and innovative August 30, 2011
    Reviewer: Johnny from UK  
    This workshop was packed with common-sense ideas. It was friendly, practical, and innovative. I felt motivated to get things done because I was able to tackle things in "bite size" pieces, which actually saved me time, but I got more done...! And I enjoyed the feedback and ideas from new friends in the forum. It felt great to see the improvements at home, and feel the sense of space and airiness again.

    Transition of my mindset May 19, 2011
    Reviewer: Melanie from CANADA  
    The most amazing thing that happened was the transition of my mindset - from the impossible 'completing' all my tasks to 'making progress or starting 'a' task - everyday. It is so freeing & so much more is getting accomplished & I know longer feel overwhelmed.

    Revolutionized the way I see the task May 19, 2011
    Reviewer: Adrienne from OR  
    This workshop has helped me realize that BIG progress can be made by working on big decluttering projects in small amounts of time. The 15-minute declutter (using a timer) usually led me on to another and another 15-minute time spent on the task and it was soon completed without much effort. It has revolutionized the way I see the task facing me.
