Always remember you don't have to aim for perfection. You just want to be a successful, average housekeeper.

1. Message of the Day


What's the matter with me? Am I just lazy?

That is the question many women ask themselves as they see their friends who are quick to clean the cabinets, fold the laundry, wash the dishes, file the papers, or whatever dreaded mundane task they procrastinate doing.

The answer may lie in research which shows that some who dread these type of jobs have bodies that are low in adrenaline. These people can focus and accomplish jobs they find exciting or interesting so they often say they can do what they are interested in. But if they are not interested, the jobs go undone. This is because excitement stimulates the production of adrenaline and, voila, they suddenly feel like doing the job. Sometimes they lose interest before the job is completely done, the adrenaline drops, and the stuff sits around the house half done. Cleaning up after the job is completed is definitely boring. No fun in that! So the ebb and flow of interest regulates whether the job gets done. And the house shows the effect of it.

(Tomorrow - What to do about it.)

2. Habit of the Day

Commit for just this one day.


Identify and do only the things that will make a serious impact. 

The top twenty percent in importance of the necessary things to do will make an eighty percent change in your life.

3. 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 don't leave things out just because we plan to get back to the project later.

In our family, we wash, dry, fold, and put up our clothes as one continuous job.

4. Quote of the Day

There's never time to put it away, but there is always time to look for it.

6. New Question of the Day

A while back, we asked whether you had any projects that needed to be started in order to solve problems that have held on too long. But today the question is whether you can name just one boring, half-finished project that needs to be completed. Look around and spy just one thing. Tell us what you see and will start to tackle.

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

7. From the Trenches


I fold the clothes up every evening (when the kids are asleep and I'm watching the news) then in the morning they put them all away.

I also teach them to put them in their drawers in sets so everything matches. I'm working on getting rid of a lot of clothes. The less they have the easier it is.

(Thanks to Benita)

Repetition is important. Forward to friends if desired but not to other sites. Read this whole posting or only what you can take in today, then delete it.

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."
