What are the most common mistakes clients make when they judge your work?
Clients never make a mistake
Nothing much to judge really .. like i said i do my job to the best of my ability!
They read some, or one, but miss the over-arching point. It's best to read deep and think about human nature. I think it is important to understand what would happen if society was broken in one way or another. What would happen?
They always see me likes a humorist.
That I'm not as happy as I appear to be.
The biggest myth perhaps is that fortyfivedownstairs is a funded organisation and that we don't need further financial support. The facts are that we rent our building, have bills to pay and our Artistic Director is unpaid. We work hard to make more for artists and not from them which is why every donation is crucial to our survival. We couldn't keep our doors open without the generosity and support of our volunteers and dedicated donors.
People sometimes believe that since I came from outside the industry that I am incapable of relating with them.
I like my work stand out. It may cause misunderstandings
Clients usually think it will be easy to attack each zone of their house after an organizing session because it's easier working with someone than it is being on their own.
After an organizing session clients get a "high" feeling and don't want to stop the process. Organizing is both a mental de-cluttering process and a physical de-cluttering process. Before I'm finished working with a client I suggest we go for a walk or do something completely unrelated to organizing. We talk about how they can maintain the system and I help them wind down so they won't exhaust themselves.
