1. Message of the Day


Don't stop just because you drift away from your organizational path or falter badly. Airliners and space crafts are off course more than they are on. The secret is to do what pilots and astronauts do; make an adjustment when you realize you are off course. Don't use energy worrying about it. Just get back on course and keep heading for your destination.


2. Did You Know?

We have two resources available to encourage you in this life journey:

Set a timer for ten minutes and attack a hot spot with a vengeance.

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 pay attention to maintaining beauty.

In our family, we push our chairs back up to the table when we leave.

In our family, we use one bath towel for a week.

5. New Quote of the Day

Alone we can do so little.
Together we can do so much.

Helen Keller


6. New Question of the Day

Break out of the envelope of thinking. Do not try to do it so much on your own. Are you overlooking sources of outside help? The question of the day is, Who MIGHT you consider to get to help who you have not asked before? It may be family, friends, or someone you hire. Let us know.

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

7. From the Trenches


Sandra Felton (The Organizer Lady® & host of our site) says that we Messies are not a lazy bunch. We give it a lot of effort. What tends to be the problem is that we are not focused the right way. There are baby steps that each of us can take to get us going in the right direction. Friends-of- the-Organizer-Lady online group has some good suggestions as well and Sandra Felton's books Organizing Your Day, Messie No More (now titled Organizing for Life) or any one of the others she has written can help.

It has been by baby steps that I have gotten where I am today. It is far from what I want, but far from what it was as well! Accomplishment by those small 
steps that changed habits.

(Thanks to Barbara)

8. More Info

This is a simple program. We stick with the basics as they are presented in these messages. Keep reading. Keep adding one part of the program at a time.

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.

Don't forget the daily reminders!!! Do you have a copy posted somewhere?

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.
