1. Message of the Day

Up the Down Escalator

Have you ever tried walking upstairs on an escalator that is moving down? If you have, you know how much effort it takes. For a little while you may be able to make some progress upward. After a while you are lucky if you can just stay in place. And finally,
the inevitable -- you are swept backward by the unrelenting force of the downward flow and plop! you are back at the bottom where you started.

Many of us feel the same way about trying to keep the house in order. The flow of clutter has us puffing to keep the house picked up properly. By working really hard we can do it for a while but fatigue inevitably wears out our resolve and the house
drifts downhill again.

Get off the down staircase of disorder. Quit trying to overcome clutter by putting forth more effort. Change your ingrained habits, reorder the setup of your house, and abandon your old ideas of how to do things. The best place to figure out how to do this
is by reading the book, Organizing for Life, that illuminates the factors that keep pushing us back.

Abandon what isn't working. Open the elevator door to new ways of thinking and acting and you will be surprised at how high it will take you.

2. Habit of the Day

Commit for just this one day.


If it takes thirty seconds or less to do, do it immediately.

4. Family Reminder of the Day

When you have pets, it is

Everyone's Responsibility For Their Daily Care And The Messes They Make 
NOT Just Mom's

(unless it is a child who has been given a particular responsibility such as a pet as a learning tool)! ;-)

5. Quote of the Day

Early in my career I felt that organization would destroy my creativity. Whereas now, I feel the opposite.

Discipline is the concrete that allows you to be creative.

Verna Gibson

7. From the Trenches - A CAMERA CAN'T LIE

Thanks for your daily suggestions. My house is looking better. I have to say the "Stow As You Go" and "10 Minute Tidy" are the best ones, but the others give me inspiration too.

I read the reader's suggestion about using a brighter bulb to notice things you might not have seen. I have found that taking a picture works better. I was happy with the way the front of my house was looking so I took a picture. It was only then that I noticed the gutters really needed painting. Of course this works well inside the house too, though I only recommend it when you have a room pretty under control-- it is too depressing to do it earlier!!! When you look at a picture, it really lets you know what someone sees when they look at a room. The camera does not lie.

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."
