MAKING VOWS AND BUSINESS CARDS

We have to be willing to make some changes in the 
way we think if we are ever going to make permanent 
changes in our houses.

2. Message of the Day

MAKING VOWS

Are you succeeding in your program? If not, what 
change do you need to make? Maybe you should:
  • Make a vow to yourself to move forward one more step. 
  • Set a deadline.
  • To strengthen that vow further, plan to reward yourself when you take that step.
  • Or further make a vow for a negative consequence if you don't take that step by your deadline. Consider something like giving money to a cause you dislike (something you really do not want to do) or not buying any thing at all until you keep your vow to yourself.
These are not normal steps of the program. They are, 
however, techniques we can use in special circumstances 
when we are stuck and not moving forward in general or 
in one challenging area.
---------------------------------------------

3. Habit of the Day

Commit for just this one day.

LEAVE NO TRACE

We Messies tend to use the Hansel and Gretel rule and 
leave a trail behind us, showing where we have been. 
The scouts have a rule that when you leave an area you 
should leave no trace that you have been there. That is 
the Leave No Trace rule. Which rule will you follow?
---------------------------------------------

4. Family Reminder of the Day

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

In our family, we put things back where we got them right away.

In our family, we make our beds before we leave our room in the morning.
---------------------------------------------

5. Quote of the Day

Fatigue makes cowards of us all.

Vince Lombardi

Are you taking good care of yourself. Are you drinking 
enough water? Are you eating well, getting enough rest, 
tending to medical needs.

Dear one, please stop and focus on whether you are so 
tired because you need to take better care of yourself.
---------------------------------------------

6. Question of The Day

Do you have a spot in your life where you are stuck? 
If so, what vow will you make? Are you willing to share 
that with us and report on how it works out?

7. From the Trenches

I have a small album specifically for business cards which 
I got from an office supply store. Each page has room for 
4 business cards (8 if you put them back to back) which go 
into clear plastic sleeves like a photo album. I have a page 
which contains cards from the doctors I go to, one for the 
vets for my cats, a page with cards from the plumber, 
electrician, furnace people & cable company, about 3 for 
cards from our favorite restaurants so we can make 
reservations or call up for delivery, I even have my sisters' 
business cards from where they work so I can call them 
during working hours if necessary, and one with my boss' 
work phone, home phone, and cell phone number if I need 
to call in. It sits right next to my telephone and has been 
quite handy. I add updated or new cards as I get them 
and very seldom do I lack for an important phone number. 
If I don't have a card I cut out a card sized piece of paper 
and just write down the information. I like the business 
cards better than just writing the addresses and phone 
numbers in an address book because they often list 
office/open hours, e-mail addresses, and websites.

MESSIES ANONYMOUS SLOGAN

Please memorize this slogan and post it on your wall.

The secret to success is making very small, yet very consistent, changes.

Or to make it short, "Baby steps, baby steps" in the right direction.

"Never underestimate the inevitability of gradualness."
