"Every night before bed write down the top six things, in order, that you need to accomplish the next day (no more than six). Then, go systematically through the list, completing the tasks in order, crossing out each thing as you go."Mary Challenge: Use the Six List for 6 days: what doesn't get done one day goes to the top of the list for the next day.
- This has been very helpful, as it forces me to prioritize and work towards checking things off my list! I have always been a list-maker, but I usually make lists that are unrealistic and have a whole page full of things I need to do. Having just 6 things makes me feel like I can actually accomplish something!
Here are a few before and after pictures of some of the cabinets I cleaned out:
After: I also found a pearl earring I'd been missing! It was in a coffee cup on the top shelf :)
Before: cabinet that holds school supplies, baby food, and who knows what else!
After: the same cabinet from another angle and door-art supplies and other school stuff:
Before: an upper cabinet. I found about 5 lego sets in this cabinet that we had forgotten about!
After: cookbooks, forgot to take a before picture of this one.
