1. Message of the Day


Messies are an emotional lot. We love our belongings, our memories, and our present habits dearly. We are strongly attached to our many hobbies and projects. That's why we resist letting go.

Let us transfer that emotional approach to love for a better way of life. Train yourself to love to come home to an orderly house. Entwine tightly around yourself the concept of a beautiful and organized life.

Be driven by strong emotion to do whatever it takes to make the change you need, the change you want, and the change you deserve. In short, care intently and keep on caring until it is done.

2. Sharing Our Successes

It is still much of a fight to get things organized but the two most important achievements help me come through the days and having hope for more achievements: 

* The shining sink. I made it a routine to have the kitchen shine at me before I go to sleep so it will smile at me in the morning. It is not perfect and I keep putting things from one site to the other but this way the sink and the surface of the dishwasher and washing machine are empty and clean.

* The bed made in the morning right away. Not perfect, but done. So when I come back from the bathroom it already spreads a nice atmosphere.

I thank you from all my heart

(Thank you Lina for taking the time to tell us of your success.)

4. Habit of the Day

When you begin an area or room, go to the door and focus on seeing what you need
to do. Make yourself tune in visually.

(Hint: Circle your hand or use an empty toilet roll as a telescope to focus your attention on what you are seeing. Better yet, take a digital snapshot before and after.)

5. 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 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.

If I change my Thinking I will change my Feelings.
If I change my Feelings I will change my Actions.
If I change my Actions, I will change my Life.

Start today to change your thinking. The rest will follow.

7. Question of The Day

Do just one thing! Is there anything you need to overcome procrastinating? If so, what? When is your deadline? And what is your consequence if you don't?

Tell us by posting on Friends-of-The-Organizer-Lady.

8. From the Trenches - PERSPECTIVE

The thought of moving got me going again. I was out walking on Thanksgiving and came across a house for sale that was exactly what I had always dreamed of. Only problem is that it is way more than we could afford unless we manage to win the lotto. But it didn't keep me from fantasizing. What would we take with us? What would we get rid of? Of course that would only go so far. For example, if we did win the lotto, I would get rid of several boxes of clothing and just buy new instead of waiting to go through them to see if there is anything we need. But it did help me realize that there still was a lot of stuff that I don't need even now and I managed to clear out several spaces over the weekend. About three bags to Goodwill.

(Thanks to Betsy)
