That’s why each week we’ll provide a tip to help you through the process of redecorating, remodeling or moving.
This week’s advice comes from Kate Fessler, a certified professional on handling change.
When deciding whether to redecorate, remodel or move, avoid characterizing a need by saying, “If only I had ‘X,’ I would be happy. Would a waterfront home, a new pool, a redesigned kitchen or a smaller condo make you happy? Maybe. But when you start a sentence by saying, “If only I had ‘X’.” It’s not the ‘X’ you’re chasing. Go deeper. Why do you think it would make you happy? Getting to the root cause of those feelings is important to make sure you’re not disappointed by a big decision in the end.
