Last weekend I realized I had failed at something I shared here on this blog. Remember my Organize Your Home in 15 Minutes a Day post? Set the timer for 15 minutes each day – to clean your home in small steps?
Well, I failed. I have not been doing this daily and my list is still here. I’m printing it out as I write so I can check off the completed tasks and reorganize.
On Monday I added the 15 Minute task to my Google calendar at 4pm each day for the next 3 weeks. It pops up to remind me of what I need to do. I actually cleaned my dresser & folded clothes during my 15 minutes on Monday.
Then, I failed again. Really!
I didn’t do anything on Tuesday or Wednesday, so I’m making up for it today. This morning I partially cleaned my overloaded desk. It took 15 minutes to go through 1 stack of papers.
This afternoon (at 4pm) I plan to clean my closet. My closet is the reason I added the 15 Minute task to my calendar in the first place. It needs help!
Thank goodness for grace . . . and tomorrow! I’ll let you know how I do today & tomorrow. Hopefully I can turn this into a 15 minute “daily” habit 🙂
Do you ever set goals in January and forget about them in February, March & April? How do you stay focused in the long run?
