Home Organization Tips – Self Discpline is the Queen of Everything
Comment posted Home Organization Tips – Self Discpline is the Queen of Everything by Jan Ferrante.
The best way that I have found to build self discipline is to start small and work up. It becomes easier and easier as it becomes a habit but it is a large step to get started, so chunking it down helps.
Often we make a ‘mountain out of a mole hill’ in our mind and that keeps us from even starting.
Just choose one thing to start with – you can make it your daily shower – that is something that will make you feel better as well. Add to that.
I have found that spending a little time on myself every day has completely changed my outlook, my energy and my self esteem.
If you can, make an appointment with the hairdresser to get your hair done (you could make that your one week reward) – what ever it needs (mine is quite grey and was making me look and feel dragged out so I got highlights – best thing I’ve done for awhile!) and I got a more stylish cut too. Love it and I feel so much better.
The small things really do add up.
I’m glad that you asked, I will look at that question closer.
Stay in touch, let us know how you do.

- Hi Cindy and Karen!
When my kids were little and I need a “major float”, I set up my day in something like a pie graph so that I could choose at a glance what activity best suited the commotion of the moment :0)
I liked it, now I use a series of boxes to form a square – I think there are 12 – 4 rows of 3. I’m very visual I guess, but it works for me. Each box holds a task, some I do every day, some every other. This way I really don’t have to plan every day, at least for that core circuit, it’s already planned, I just check it off as I do it and then rub it out for the next day using a dry erase marker and sheet protector.
That is part of the reason it works for me too, very little thinking goes into it, I can “just do it”, once I start, and commit to about 1/2 hour or so depending, it basically does itself.
- Good for you David! I’d love to hear how you make out with it.
Happy New Year!
