If Getting Organized

has been on your list of New Year’s Resolutions,

I can help you with that ONCE AND FOR ALL!

“I was absolutely drowning in paperwork… so I contacted Kathy Paauw. I’d really come to respect her and knew that she could help me out.” 

— Jack Canfield
Best-selling author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul® series and The Success Principles™: How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be

Let me help you clear the clutter from your schedule, space and mind! Just as I did for Jack, I can teach you how to:

  • Stay focused on what’s most important, at home and at work.
  • Find anything you file or store within 5 seconds.
  • Eliminate thoughts, activities, relationships, and things in your environment that do not enhance your work or personal life.
  • Remember important follow-up at the right time.
  • Enjoy a life of purpose, passion, and fun!

Tame Your Paper Tiger!

Most individuals waste at least 150 hours a year looking for information. At an average rate of $25/hour (including salary + benefits), that equates to nearly $4,000 per year per employee. Multiply $4,000 times the number of employees in a company, and the cost in lost productivity is staggering.

For more than two decades I have used a system that enables me — and others in my home or office — to find ANYTHING we file or store in 5 seconds or less, whether that be in the form of paper or something else.

Most filing or storage systems break down over time, but this finding system has stood the test of time! Since 1996, I have implemented The Paper Tiger for hundreds of happy clients and work groups throughout North America… including Jack Canfield!

  • “During the next 6.5 years, my very survival depended on having a high degree of order around me.

    Kathy, I’ve used Paper Tiger over the years and am evangelistic about its value. In May of 1995, I was in a serious accident when a drunk driver hit me while I was riding my bicycle. My skull was fractured and I suffered brain injuries in the area of the brain that affects executive functioning. As a result, I experienced panic reactions when interrupted, when there was clutter, or when my ability to focus was broken. During the next 6.5 years, my very survival depended on having a high degree of order around me. I’m telling you this because I am living proof that the organizing and time management principles you provide really work. Thanks!”

  • "The light at the end of the tunnel is sunshine coming in where my piles blocked the lights.

    Just getting started with the Paper Tiger makes me feel lighter. I feel more hopeful. I feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders and my chest. As a person who remembers where I put something the first time I set it down, I've been afraid to file papers away. That fear has paralyzed me for about two years -- no filing done -- or at least very little. The Paper Tiger is so awesome and I see such great possibilities -- I am so very excited! I feel secure and trustful filing things away with The Paper Tiger because now I know I can find them again. There is hope. The light at the end of the tunnel is sunshine coming in where my piles blocked the lights. Thank you so much for this wonderful program."

I can save you years of frustration by helping you get started right.

Want to learn more? Here’s the process:

  1. Complete one or more of my No-Cost Assessments to better understand your sticking points with personal and business organization, life balance, and mindset. This will help you clarify what has shifted out of balance and could use some TLC. After you share your confidential responses, you’ll receive an easy-to-understand “score” to help you interpret the results.
  2. Schedule a No-Cost, No-Pressure Discovery Call with me. We’ll talk for 30 minutes on the phone (or Skype if you are outside the USA) about your vision for your ultimate business and personal life. We’ll also uncover the challenges that can sabotage your success, and next steps to move you forward.
  3. Decide the kind of support you want as you move from where you are to where you want to be. During our call, I’ll propose some ways we can work together, or if I am not the right person to meet your needs, I’ll suggest other resources to help you accomplish your goals.

Of course, you may decide that our discovery call meets your needs for now. If that’s the case, I’ll deliver on my promise — no pressure or obligation to work together.
