That one thing that bothers you – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

Today I want you to get out your notepad and pencil. Take a walk through your home and pretend you are a real estate agent. Make a list of the things that you would change if you were selling your home. After you make the list, give each thing a number of how important it is to you to change those things. Mark ONE thing as the thing that would give you the most peace if you changed it. Now, set your timer for 15 minutes and work on that ONE thing. I love the zone missions for this week because we can focus on the things that we have been putting off and deal with them one step at a time. I am not asking you to tear apart a room or a closet. I am just asking you to do one thing to bring you peace in your home.


Zone Mission – Work on that one thing in your home that will help bring you peace.
