Don't think you can skip it because you already know what is there. 
Read the whole page whether you do them or not  at this time. 

Repetition will have a powerful influence. Do what you 
can when you can but begin by doing your morning routine.

Consistency is the key.

2. Habit of the Day

Commit for just this one day.

Always leave the dinner table fully cleared, wiped, and 
decorated --- with flowers or whatever your fashion taste dictates.

4. Family Reminder of the Day

Pick one of these reminders or make one of your own to 
share with your family each day.

Fold an index card in half, write the reminder on both 
sides of the card, and put it on the dinner table each night.

In our family, we put what we need the next day by the 
front door the night before

In our family, we don't drop our things when we come in 
the door. We take them and put them where they belong.

In our family, we put dirty clothes into the hamper as 
soon as we take them off.

5. Quote of the Day

Failure is seldom caused by a major catastrophe.

It is a series of little failures. Success is the same way.

A little at a time, done consistently, is the secret.

6. Question of The Day

outlook can change behavior?

7. From the Trenches


I know MA works for sure now - I just had our regular play 
group of 7 kids under 4, and 4 adults for lunch for 4 hours. 
I made lunch for all of us last night, cleaned the kitchen 
between lunch and dessert, ran the dishwasher and cleaned 
up quickly after dessert. My friends helped out some and 
after they left, I cleaned my kids rooms which were Mount 
Vernoned last week and I was done in no time straightening 
and seeing the floor again. I can sit here tonight with a clean 
home and feel good about having friends over. My horizontal 
surfaces are sparkling and I can reward myself with time to 
read all my emails.
