I’m a firm believer that everything is more fun with a friend along for the ride. In my own life, I’ve used this philosophy to accomplish many goals including running multiple half marathons. My running buddies gave me extra motivation to stick to my training plan. They inspired me to leave the comfort of my cozy bed at the crack of dawn to hit the trails and go for a run (sometimes even in the rain!) Friends are pretty powerful motivators.

The power of friendship inspired our latest online organizing event—the Summer Organize-athon. Whether you love to organize, or do it only out of necessity, the Organize-athon makes tackling your organizing projects more fun because you aren’t doing it alone. Instead, you’ll be in the company of a group of online friends (including me!) who will be there to cheer you on, motivate you to take the next steps on your organizing projects, and check some projects off your to-do list!

Here’s what participants of our Spring Organize-athon had to say…

I have a few moments before my lunch guests arrive so instead of cleaning and tidying more I decided to see what was happening here. Now I’m so motivated to get going on my project again just after reading a few posts!
Thank you for providing the opportunity. It was a great kick start for some of the projects that have been stalled. I look forward to continuing to connect on the forum.
thanks ever so much, aby & everyone for your inspiring support. i couldn’t have faced all of that without it. also, did i hear the words ‘until next time’? when? when!?


As you can see, the event worked, and it was loads of fun, too! So you won’t want to miss out on the next one.
