Your Daily Treat…
According to professional organizers it takes just eight minutes a day to set you on the road to organized bliss. Imagine that! Just eight minutes. It takes me longer than that to conceal the bags under my eyes!
And so in the name of science I hereby declare a puttery experiment: let’s commit to those eight minutes. Let’s set our watches daily and perform an eight minute task of the organizing our life kind every single day of the rest of the year…
We could manage that couldn’t we?
Just remember not to get carried away. Whisper bird by bird to yourself daily. Choose just one drawer. One pile of papers. One magazine to excavate the fabulous from. Today go through your make up bag, tomorrow tackle the condiment shelf in your pantry, and so on, and so on…
Commitment and determination: that’s all it takes – eight minutes daily.
