I got out of my morning routine for a day and a few chores were left undone. I let the dishes pile up in the sink, my dishwasher was full and I forgot to start the wash cycle.
Do you know what? Everyone survived and the day went just fine.
It was also rather easy to get back on track. I have a routine and everything has a home, so getting back on track meant focusing for about 30 minutes on getting my home back in order. It was easy to do because I could work on autopilot. The key was that I didn’t let my routine slip too far before getting back into the flow.
Staying organized is not about having a perfect home. Staying organized is about having a good flow to your day so that you have time to enjoy your life. Sometimes a slip in my routine is a good reminder of why I like to be organized.
As I begin my blog, I welcome your suggestions for topics or your questions about organization.
