You Can Do It!

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool


Did you reach your goals this month?

The month of May has been a fun and busy month for me. I achieved a big goal and worked on steps to other goals.

Is something you wanted to do but did not get to it? Do one thing toward completing that goal.

Today is also anti-procrastination day, so that is another reason to deal with something you have been putting off. What I have found is that the things that I put off tend to grow in size in my mind the longer I put them off. Once I determine to do something I have procrastinated, I use my timer and give myself permission to stop when I that timer goes off.

Many times, I complete the task before the timer goes off. If not, I put it aside and do something else. Then I put it on my list to go back and do one more thing on another day.

Are there parts of your decluttering or Home Blessings that you put off until it is really bad? In talking to ladies across the country, the things I see put off the most are dusting, mopping, and swish & swipe. Each of these can be done in a short amount of time. With consistency, you will see that it really takes minutes to do these tasks. If you continue to procrastinate them, they become raging fires in our homes.

Stop right now and think of one thing you have been putting off. Set your timer for 15 minutes. Do what you can do and stop. I know you can do this!

Your Zone Mission today is to move the Living Room Furniture (enlist help) and vacuum.

Your Home Blessing for today is to wipe your windows and mirrors.

My menu plan for Wednesday is fish and baked potatoes.

Have a great day!
