I will be the first to freely admit that I suffer from CHAOS, Can’t Have Anyone Over Syndrome.
Dirty Dishes in the sink.
Huge stack of papers on the coffee table.
Half finished projects on the dining room table.
Someone’s dirty socks on the living room floor.
And mopping? yeah, not happening lately.
I could give you excuse after excuse as to why it’s like this in my house, but really, excuses are kinda lame, don’tcha think?
Enter, (or in my case, reenter) FlyLady!
What is FlyLady,you ask?
Well, FlyLady is “your personal online coach to help you gain control of your house and home”
I REALLY need to gain control of my house and home! Like seriously…
FlyLady helps to remind you to do the tasks that I seem to forget. Or that I put off. She is awesome at encouraging me to get it all done. It’s all about setting up routines and following through with them.
I tend to be a perfectionist and there just are not enough hours in the day to get it all done. So like many of you, I put off doing important things because it will “take too long”
Thanks to FlyLady, I now know that I can do anything for 15 minutes. Just 15 minutes. That’s all.
After 15 minutes, I switch to a new task. And guess what? My house is getting cleaner. 15 minutes at a time.
