Step 1: Identify specific objects
Identify specific things to be done or objects to be organized – books, trash, clothing items – and clean by category.

Focus on one area at a time and clean it, before moving to the next one. Start in one corner and move out from there.

Step 3: Set time limits
Set time limits and make a game out of it, betting on yourself.

Step 4: Post visual reference
Post a to-do list on the door, making a visual reference that targets tasks so you don't forget anything. This confers a sense of achievement.

Remove your bedding and put on new sheets. Get the dirty dishes, old socks, and any dead things out from underneath.

Separate dirty clothes from clean, which should be folded and put away or hung up.

Dust all surfaces and vacuum the carpet. Spray some air freshener. Done.
