“Simplicity involves unburdening your life, and living more lightly with fewer distractions that interfere with a high quality life, as defined uniquely by each individual.”

– Linda Breen Pierce




Diana Cutler uses a minimal approach to her aesthetic design – keeping things streamlined and priorities always in focus. With her clients she outlines five steps for creating a minimalist garden. As Eckert Tolle says, “If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place”.


Want to be more productive in 2017? We are in love with the team communication service Slack , Evernote (our all time favorite app for collaboration memory and access), and this wireless keyboard when you are on the move.


Almost every move involves some amount of charitable donations. As clients evaluate tax implications, many ask us about requirements when reporting these donations. Here are tips from the IRS related to deducting charitable donations. And don’t miss this article in the New Yorker, Decluttering for the New Year.


Over the holidays, we took in a newly released movie titled Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things. Two years ago we heard The Minimalists Joshua and Ryan speak at the NAPO Conference in Los Angeles, sharing their insights around getting rid of the superfluous and focusing on what really matters. These men have inspired followers to simplify their lives and create meaningful moments without excess.

We embrace such a philosophy at In Order to Succeed. Whether moving or organizing a residence or business, we are forced to ask the questions that lead people to new understandings of what is most meaningful in their lives. When defining what truly matters, the key question is to ask yourself is, “What’s my story?” Pattie Sellers, founding partner of SellersEaston Media, explains why it’s critical to know the answer.

So set your intentions for the new year. What inspires you? How will you tell your story? Here’s to a 2017 filled with many meaningful moments and that which brings the most value to your life.


“Thanks to our Evernote consulting session with In Order to Succeed, our team has learned how to eliminate redundancies and develop effective systems and strategies to take our workflow to a whole new level.”

“I can’t say enough about the wonderful services offered by Denise Caron-Quinn and her team at In Order to Succeed. We recently moved our NYC office location with their help. We reached out to them when we realized how many details were associated with this move and how much valuable time we would lose doing it ourselves! From assessing the scope of the move, to working with building personnel in both the old and new buildings, creating a plan, directing staff communications, pricing movers and dealing with insurance permits, Denise and her team were an essential source of calm and professionalism. Amidst what would have been a chaotic move, In Order to Succeed was completely on top of all the details and truly saved the day. I would say to anyone who is relocating – home or office – or has a project to be managed, hiring In Order to Succeed is the best move you can make.”
