Psychological reasons for clutter,the power of subconscious mind audiobook,presents about new york - New On 2016

If you want a simple definition,clutter is something created by you when you have more stuff coming in than going out. Psychological—you're filling a hole in your life with stuff.Clutter happens when you hoard stuff and hang on to them. Procrastination—you put it off for that glorious day when you will give it your all and get it done. Where does clutter come from?Clutter is not always inexpensive junk or sentimental crap that you hang on to; it can also be the $200 shoe that pinches or the $500 dress that makes you look fat. A place for everything and everything in its place is a good motto to follow: one of the things my Grandma drummed into me.
If you don't want to do one chore a day but would like to mix and match, limit yourself to a fixed time. If you follow these suggestions, you will have a clutter-free, clean home in about two weeks' time. WeekendNotes will notify you of the best free community events, concerts, exhibitions, cinema, festivals, and markets in your town or city. People visit craft shows because they value the skill and creativity required by hand made crafts… But people BUY at craft shows because of their sudden and intense love of your creations. This guide outlines the 5 elements of successful booth displays that will help visitors fall madly and impulsively in love with your work. Each element is a building block, creates a much admired sought after and most of all seductive craft show booth. If you’re planning on attending a craft show as an exhibitor, make sure you understand the nature of the show and the feel of the show as demonstrated by the tone the exhibitors create. It helps to regularly visit other craft show booths to get creative new ideas that can further enhance your display. You have registered for show, a show that compliments your craft products– now you have to create the booth. Before you begin this process you should remember that transporting, setting up and breaking down your booth can present problems and must be figured into the equation.
4.    You will need tape, wire, scissors, spray paint, scrap wood, pliers, perhaps recycled materials, paper, tables, table skirts, shelving, boxes, hat boxes, wooden shutters, stands, books, foam core, wooden planks, painted cardboard and heavy canvas.
5.    You can go to an office supply store or a thrift shop to get the basic building materials. After you have determined what you need to build your craft show booth, you will need to develop the context through which you will display your crafts. The presentation of your crafts as well as the overall display booth should be coordinated so that it flows nicely in feel and impression.
1.    Within this context, you should always consider your website, your business cards, your logo and other aspects of your business that can brand your product. 2.    You want customers to say, “I remember your logo…” “I love the color scheme and presentation” etc.
3.    Soft solid colors can provide a strong foundation upon which prints and patterns can be seen. 1.    A booth that is dark and cave like with everything toward the back will not get the same response as a booth that has vivid colors, interesting patterns, and display cases that utilize the entire space. 3.    Creating the environment includes the floor and the ceiling as they are considered part of the display booth and should be utilized. 4.    The more multidimensional the display, the better you expand the physical space to display your product while creating visual interest.
5.    The use of open bookcases provides an interesting dynamic to displaying your goods and moving traffic through the booth. 8.    Stools and small cabinets provide additional levels to the display and can also help direct traffic through placement. 9.    Hanging display trays and mobiles from the ceiling that show your crafts can catch the eye of the customer as the items twirl and sparkle. The environment must also compliment and enhance your crafts rather than compete with them. When craft shows are outside, as they often are, weather conditions must also be considered. You will need to have devised some way to secure your display and your products should the wind start blowing or the rain begin to fall.
You also may want to consider how you can create a space where the sides of the booth will not cut off the airflow.
1.    Without the basic information about the product, the materials and the cost, the customer may walk away rather than ask for help. 2.    Signage can help engage the customer in a dialogue that can connect you and ultimately make a sale. 1.    There is a psychological benefit to having the sensation of abundance within the organization of your display.
You may not know exactly how many products to bring, however, it is better to err on the side of too many rather than too little.
It is always important to take photos of your booth and practice putting it together and taking it apart. Brooks Palmer created Clutter Busting to help you let go of things in your life that no longer serve you.
In his fifteen plus years of Clutter Busting, Brooks has learned first-hand about the intense emotional connection most people have with material possessions, and has consistently found that his way of working with clients allows them to see and let go of internal and external clutter without delving into the psychological reasons behind the clutter. As a result, thousands of people have gained peace of mind and space in their homes, offices, and lives. Brooks and his work have since been featured in articles in, the New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, Fast Company, Time Out Chicago, Huffington Post, and the Los Angeles Business Journal, on the television shows Raising Whitely (Oprah Winfrey Network), Chicagoing with Bill Campbell, Living Live, and the CBS Channel 2 Nightly News, and on numerous radio shows including The Aware Show and Bruce Barber’s NPR show, and Real Life Survival Guide. Brooks is the best-selling author of Clutter Busting, Letting Go of What’s Holding You Back (New World Library, 2009), and Clutter Busting Your Life: Clearing Physical and Emotional Clutter to Reconnect with Yourself and Others (New World Library, 2012).

And unlike with Google, people don’t go on Facebook to make decisions about what products to buy. My first job I was in house at a fur company, with this old pro of a copywriter, a Greek, named Teddy. While Google has focused and excelled at dominating the market of online demand fulfillment—when people search for things they want and advertisers pay to have their products appear in front of them—this system relies on a model of the web that is becoming less relevant by the day. People spend more time on mobile devices than PCs and yet half of Google’s users do zero searches per day on mobile.
Native advertising—the kind that’s inline with the content you want and not off to the side like a banner ad—is more effective and cost-efficient than traditional advertising.
This is a “classic” ad because it’s not designed primarily to educate you on a product’s features.
Today, though, advertisers also have the power to target their ads and understand how well they’re performing. Advertisers of the past were basically limited to targeting by geographic location and broad ranges of age—guessing, essentially, who was really in front of the TV screen. Google may be able to tailor ads by a user’s browser history, but what you search for on the web is just one part of you.
Some people are still anxious, thinking this will still be too many people picked from Facebook’s billions. A 2012 study by researchers from the Rotman and Kellogg Schools of Managementdemonstrated that advertisements were more effective when they were tailored to specific psychological profiles rather than specific demographics.
Five cell phone advertisements were constructed, each one designed to target a major trait domain of the human personality: Extraversion, Agreeableness, Conscientiousness, Emotional Stability and Openness to Experience.
Each ad featured a photo of the phone along with a paragraph of text altered depending on the personality of the targeted consumer.
In every single case, the ads were rated as most effective when they aligned with the personalities of the participants. GoPro is aiming at and keying in hard on the extroverted and open-to-experience market by showing you how exciting GoPro footage of extreme sports can be. Targeting consumers who’d gone or expressed interest in going to adventure destinations like Maui, the Virgin Islands or Lake Tahoe. Targeting consumers who’d liked things like the X Games, BASE jumping or other extreme sport activities.
To do this yourself, construct a buyer persona for your product or service with an emphasis on the five traits listed above.
When you’re coming up with your buyer persona, make sure you think about what kind of ideal you’re presenting. Facebook, on the other hand, gives advertisers a myriad of ways to drum up consumer awareness and interest.
In 1965, Jonathan Freedman and Scott Fraser conducted a study at Stanford University designed to a test a hypothesis about compliance: that asking someone to do you a small favor would make them more likely to do a larger one for your later.
Those housewives who’d been asked the first questions were 20% more likely to accept this second request. By narrowing down what you want from your customer and making it easy as pie for them to fulfill it, you can ask of them a “small favor.” Later on, they’ll remember that in a positive light and be more likely to buy a product or write a review.
When you’re marketing a new product, you need to amass likes and shares so that you get more of a foothold in the Facebook world. The statistic about personal recommendations being preferred by consumers plays into the product that Ambassador makes—a tool for tracking referrals. Ambassador’s Google ads might be useful for someone who already knows Ambassador, but they’re unlikely to attract anyone on their own, especially when it’s hard to see what makes it any different from other options like Amplifinity (also listed). Once people start liking a product page, that fact gets embedded in all their Newsfeed ads, cranking the consensus aspect up to 11. When a bunch of a user’s friends like a product or company page, they’re going to see that and associate them with that page.


And Facebook isn’t just going to pick out two random names to show: when a user sees that “x,” “y,” and “n” others liked a page, x and y are inevitably going to be friends with whom they possess the strongest social ties, strengthening the social proof aspect even further. But that doesn’t change the fact that 70% of web consumers would rather learn about products through content then traditional advertising. Facebook is not the only place on the net where you can advertise your product with content, but it is the most popular, and there are a couple of factors that make it ideal. Consumers love getting things that will bring them value, especially if they’re free. Zillow put together an eBook on social media strategies and decided to give it away on Facebook.
There are a number of psychological reasons why it makes sense to give things away for free. Behavioral economics researcher Dan Ariely has observed that people actually over-value free items. Not only are people more attracted to free things, they have a hard time, in general, evaluating the value that they expect to get from buying something.
In their seminal paper on the psychology of choice, Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky looked at several different examples of framing and how they impacted the way that people thought about the decisions they had to make. 78% of participants, when asked, preferred Program B, but in a similar test where the first program referred to directly “saving” people and the second program referred to probabilities of survival, participants preferred the first program: the sure bet. When people stand a chance of gaining (or saving people), Kahneman concluded, they’re more likely to avoid risk. Similarly, in this ad from Open Listings, the decision you have to make is framed in terms of the money you will lose if you don’t use their service. But if you can tap into the loss aversion principle and demonstrate what they’ll lose or miss out on, you’ll trigger that risk-taking impulse and they’ll stop scrolling.
It’s hugely important to get started with Facebook ads now, to start learning the techniques that will help you succeed, because this is the way the world is moving.
Madison Avenue’s advertisers have been slow to react to the web, and as a result their industry is going through big changes trying to adjust—just as Ad Age’s Bob Garfield predicted in his now-famous “Chaos Scenario” articles. Maybe it's filled with old clothes, your kids' toys but a new report from "The Wall Street journal" reveries what we keep could be a window into our state of mind. Fortunately that works out just fine because I'm a freelance writer and darned good at that. You might be the best-dressed at your work place but your personal space might be dust mites' delight. For some reason, probably guilt, you hang on to them hoping some day, by way of some magic, you'd be able to wear it. Often, sentimentality goes out the window when money starts piling up in your PayPal account.
Put what you haven't used in a while in a box, whether it's clothes, shoes, utensils, gadgets, gifts, whatnot. If you have space for ten pairs of shoes, don't buy twenty even if you have the money for it. After that, if you can spend 30 minutes every other day running a duster and mop through your home, picking up stuff immediately rather then letting it remain on the floor, and follow the 'a place for everything motto,' you will have and maintain a reasonably tidy living space. In other words, if it is a high-end craft show you should not bring items made from inexpensive materials for a school craft show. If so, does that mean you require the help of a crew and hours upon hours to set up and break down? You most likely will want to avoid a design that requires a crew and multiple vehicles unless money is of no object to you. Items that can double as storage during transit and as display cases include things such as cassette cases, photo albums, and stackable containers, to name only a few. Thrift shops also provide you with the opportunity to find interesting objects that can be used to show off your crafts. Consistency in theme and color is necessary if you want a positive emotional response from customers as well as the ability to make yourself easily remembered and recognized.
If you are sharing a booth with another, make an attempt to coordinate the colors in some of the decorations so that the entire booth has a cohesive feel.
The fabrics should be integral with the theme and color but should not compete with your crafts.
This concept is critical, as you don’t want the booth set up to be intimidating, discouraging, alienating, or depressing. Utilizing the entire space requires thinking about traffic flow especially if you have a larger booth. Open bookcases allow access to products from both sides and creating two different traffic flow patterns.
Creating levels diversifies the visual presentation and increases the room in which to display items while reducing traffic jams around tables.
In other words, if you are at a Christmas holiday show, do not set up a booth that has the feel of summer beach days. Competition between display design and the crafts you wish to sell will psychologically confuse the customer and discourage buying.
While there is not a great deal to be done, you don’t want to be chasing down your crafts as they blow off the table or walls and roll away from your booth under foot of passersby.
That also means that you should have your logo prominently displayed, have newsletters and business cards easily available for anyone who enters the booth. A person gets a feel for the booth and the crafts available through the presentation, and level of professionalism created by the display. If there aren’t enough objects to attract the eye and give the sense of abundance, your customers will not want to stay in the booth either. Your goal is to entice new customers to buy and provide old customers a new reason to visit.
You do not want your building materials thrown about; you do not want half eaten sandwiches messing up your display table. Since 2000, Brooks has been using compassion, awareness, and humor to help thousands of clients rid their lives of clutter and develop habits to keep them clutter free.

Now, not only are people spending more time using appsthan searching on Google or watching TV, most of that time is being spent on Facebook. That may sound bad, but in reality, you don’t want to advertise to people who are making decisions or searching for information. You want to advertise when they’re relaxing, when they’re dreaming, when they’re imagining and enjoying—in other words, everything they do when they’re floating on Facebook’s endless river of content. The new model will be one based on demand generation—where advertisers create awareness and interest in a company’s products. With only a few dominant television networks and magazine publishers, reaching consumers was easy but expensive. Its users are corralled into an immersive stream of engaging content, and advertising has incredible power there.
Some of the methods they’re using to get into the heads of users were first understood and tried in the 50’s and 60’s, while some are more novel. Users give up an unprecedented amount of information and you can use almost all of it; ads can be targeted to an audience by country, state, city, zip code, age, gender, occupation, race, interests, how long they’ve been single or how long they’ve been engaged, the languages they speak, their level of education, whether they’re fans of you or not, whether they’re fans of ballroom dancing or not, whether they are fans of you and ballroom dancing or not—the list goes on. If your general demographic is women aged 18-24, divide that group into five sections and ascribe each one interests and buying habits that match up to an emotional trait.
But that doesn’t mean the depictions of dirt biking and sky diving are irrelevant; a Journal of Advertising study from 1995 demonstrated that consumers often choose or avoid products based more on how much they desire the lifestyle idealized by it.
It’s seeded the idea in you that GoPros exist to capture scenes of really fun, out-there activities that you could take part in and record if you got one. It doesn’t have to be something incredibly luxurious or cool, or even an “ideal” in the classic sense of the world.
Customers want something, they search for it, and maybe they happen to click on an ad for your product.
To get a foot in the door (or in your Newsfeed), advertisers can combine proven psychological tactics with the network effects that made Facebook so big in the first place.
It’s counterintuitive, but there’s actually good reason to believe that people who comply with that request are more likely to become customers later. Sometimes, the researchers asked the women to tell them about the households products they used. Don’t shy away from asking people to do things for you: psychologically, they’ll actually like you more if they do it. To start getting those likes, companies often use industry facts and figures or statistics about their existing customers to demonstrate a consensus on the quality of their value proposition, such as in this ad from Ambassador. It’s not a direct appeal, but one based on reasoning: if most people trust their family and friends about products, then I must be better off with a tool that helps me track those kinds of referrals. People are busy and often cynical, and they want to see other people saying good things about your product or objective proof of your value proposition. Done wrong, it can embarrass your brand and make your readers feel betrayed. The Atlantic found this out after a poorly thought out collaboration with the Church of Scientology. That means that 70% of consumers are going to be disappointed if all you’re doing is trying to steal clicks in Google’s search results. Participants in a study Ariely ran preferred free Hershey’s Kisses to 13 cent Lindt truffles, even though everyone knows the latter is much more delicious.
Zillow probably realized just how many of these social media guides were already out there and didn’t want people to be paralyzed thinking about whether this one was worth giving a bunch of money or information away for. Tile, the maker of a small GPS-enabled clip that goes on your wallet or keys, does not frame their product in terms of what it will add to your life.
An unusual disease had cropped up and was projected to kill 600 people, and they were responsible for deciding how the government should react. By reminding you of the things you lose in your daily life, Tile wants to get you to take a risk on buying their product.


Not only that, but the same transition appears to be happening again—from search ads to native ads. If you want to successfully market your business, you need to go where the people are watching, where they’re chatting, where they’re engaging—you need to go native.

This means balancing what you buy, get as gifts, hand-me-downs, heirlooms, and freebies with what you discard whether in the form of garbage, charity, garage sale, spring cleaning, selling on eBay, or just giving it away to friends and family. Close friends or family may point it out to you but you will not be convinced that it is a problem. If you're time-poor, read on to find how you can strategically cut down cleaning to make it bite-size and doable. This is because you view it as a monumental task that requires enormous effort and logistics, like preparing for the Olympics. Clean for 30 minutes (or an hour) everyday, even if you have to break it up into 15 minutes each in the morning and evening. That still leaves you 23 hours and 30 minutes, or 1410 minutes a day for eating, sleeping, working, relaxing, playing, socialising, loving, and doing stuff that makes you happy. Such building materials do not have to cost a great deal of money but when they are put together, they must create a cohesive, visually interesting and tastefully designed booth.
Look at objects in the everyday world that can serve other functions as craft displays such as tea cups, hangers, coral, baskets, sponges, egg crates etc. You want to provide new customers with sensations that will make you and your product memorable and draw them into the booth. Themes and colors should enhance the presentation, not fight against the crafts for attention. You always want the affect of the presentation to further your goal—selling your product and establishing a following. In the world of craft shows, complexity can also be intimidating to the customer and overshadow the crafts you wish to sell. Perhaps adding a complimentary design on the floor or color scheme in the ceiling can tie the space together. If you are displaying high end products such as jewelry, you will need to address the issue of good bright lighting.
Products that can withstand rough handling should be displayed differently than those items need more careful handling. You don’t want your booth to look confusing nor do you want it to look “picked clean.”  You don’t want your potential customer wondering why you are at the show if you have nothing to display. For example, if you have hand made magnets you might want to consider placing them in a ceramic bowl. You want to understand what you need and how long it will take to pack your materials, transport the materials, set up and break down the booth.
With a well thought out plan, your booth can provide everyone with the means to a mutually exciting and successful experience.
Advertisers practiced demand generation back then too—they made ads that creatively built up brand affinity by amusing and tickling people’s senses. It’s designed to get you interested, to make you wonder what Olivetti is all about—why are people saying such terribly nice things about her? No one, after all, goes to Google to relax or learn or be amused the way they do with Facebook. All—and we’ll look at 3 in this article—operate according to Facebook’s structure and the unique opportunity that Facebook presents to generate brand affinity and demand for a product. Put some effort into thinking like a psychologist and Facebook’s targeting system will let you pick the exact group of people that you want to reach. A few of these will most likely wind up being far more plausible than the others—those are the ones to use in your ads. They don’t annoy the user like pop-ups or banner ads used to, so the user experience is minimally impacted.
But when it comes to the threat of losing (or letting people die), people are more likely to take risks. His contention is that Google, while it is still very powerful and seemingly infallible, is going to fall behind. This emotional lack is something you constantly try to compensate for in the form of gadgets, gizmos, clothes, shoes, and whatever.
Do a mix of the above chores in any order that works best for you and gives you the best results.
If handling a craft is problematic, perhaps a glass case can be used or access to the piece limited by requiring your assistance.
Abundance versus clutter provides the customer with a good feeling—the feeling that the exhibitor is a professional. This translates into understanding if you need additional manpower and that includes managing the booth during the show. Create a storage space out of customer sight for the placement of additional crafts and garbage. Here are resources that inspired us and that we hope will inspire you to create and market beauty. You can’t generate demand with text-based ads that only appear for those who already demand something. And, because of the network effects discussed above, companies are heavily incentivized to produce better content, content that’s going to be shared or liked rather than just looked at.
Do you know where your keys are?” is designed specifically to teleport you to a time of great anxiety, i.e. If you think you have more stuff than you possibly need and then some, examine your self and come to an awareness where that real lack in your life is located.
If it does, you might want to weigh your priorities to see if your right to be messy is more important than your relationships. Often people who grow up in cluttered homes come to a realisation that has them do an about turn and become obsessed with tidying up.
If you're lazy, you're probably procrastinating and promising to tackle it first thing next Nevermber.
Mark a day 6 months into your calendar and give yourself this time period to dispose of the contents of this box. However, if you want to create a mood without using electricity, you can use flameless candles or self powered lighting products.
If you want some things to be touched and others not as much, you need to work that into the design of the booth and the flow of the traffic. If you have been running low on your magnet supply, reduce the size of the ceramic bowl to maintain the sense of abundance. By choosing the right keywords to advertise against, companies could reach consumers who’d already demonstrated interest in their product and skip the process of demand generation. Advertisers are beginning to wake up to this fact and realize that brand advertising does have a place on the net. They asked every participant if they would be okay with a team of men coming by to personally classify all the household products in their house—a 2 or 3 hour operation. This may help you see the connection between hoarding and clutter and help you work towards clutter management.
In the highly unlikely event that your clutter does not bother you or your relationships, there is still the need to consider your need for self-improvement. The more value you attribute to tidying up, the more stressful it becomes for you, and the longer you procrastinate. If you never had to use anything from this box in the meantime, it proves to you that you didn't need any of it. So declutter even if it doesn't bother you as an act of self-improvement, just as you would learn a new language or art form. The rest of your day is then for the other things you need to accomplish including rest and relaxation. Seth Meyers, a psychologist paid me a house call to give me a better sense of the reasons behind my clutter. My guess is that these jeans symbolize a time in your life when maybe you felt a little lighter, a little more free. There's a part of you that is avoiding going through this stuff because you care about it and love it all so much you want to do it perfectly but perfection is the Achilles' heel of all of our homes. Meyers says extreme clutter can be signs of bigger issues like a closet full of unworn clothing, that can mean you're trying to fill an emotional void. The need to save everything maybe OCD, boxed filled with half finished projects can be signs of attention deficit disorder and refusing to throw anything away could be fear of making the wrong decision. Organizational expert Justin Klosky says -- See the space for what it is without anything in it and then start putting things back into it to fill the space that feels right and consistently do this process once a month.
I feel like clearing up cluttering is good and my wife is good at enforcing that and making me give away stuff that I don't wear anymore. You do feel better but I find myself mementos more than clothing and things from my parents or a letter -- I just can't toss it. I also think about Kate, my little girl and what she might like to wear so I'm trying to guess what might be in fashion. I do that too so you don't see it but you still have it and I call it my little treasure box.
