I have to confess. Signing up for Flylady’s emails does not equal a cleaner home.
I am ashamed to say that each morning a get a digest of Flylady’s emails. Some mornings I read them; some mornings I don’t.
Here’s the thing: reading her emails does not get my home any neater or cleaner.
Action. That’s the missing ingredient. You have to take action.
It’s like reading a book about losing weight or watching an exercise video without getting off the couch. It’s useless.
For me, I think that part of the problem is that I have done Flylady before.
I know about dressing to your shoes and shining your sink. It’s that sneaky little thing that says “Oh I already know that. I’ll skip ahead to something new”.
That’s what gets us in trouble.
Today I am going to shine my sink. And maybe do some house blessing too. I am actually going to start practicing what I preach – or rather what Flylady preaches.
I’ll be tweeting my progress so if you follow me on Twitter you can see how well I’m doing.
Action. Today I am taking action.
