Friends, do you get these newsletters and have a quick jolt of excitement, motivation, and frenzy to get on task this month and get your home organized… but then in like three days, the moment has passed and you’re sitting back wondering why you never finish what you start?
It’s OK. We all have moments like this, and whenever we start working towards a new habit or lifestyle change we only see the end result… the perfect version of events and how amazing our life will change.
What if we are focusing on the wrong thing? The end result is great… but it’s the daily work… the process of decluttering… the planning and goal setting that really gets us into action.
So, this month I want to give you a daily task. You get to choose the room in your house that you want to work on. It can be a big room like your garage or a small room like a closet. It doesn’t matter. I will say, choose a room that is doable according to your schedule this month. Lots of folks go on vacations in June, so keep that in mind when you choose your space.
But you’re going to pick the room you want to work on. And I will send you daily tasks to complete. I will post these tasks on Instagram (@the_hoss_lady), on my business FB page, and in all of my FB groups. All you have to do is NOT IGNORE the post! LOL!!
So, to get you a head start here is what the list of tasks will look like… and they might change a little as the month goes along to accommodate the flow of engagement.

June 30 - Sit back and relax and enjoy your new space.
So… again, you do not have to do these tasks on the days that I am sending them out. But you will be reminded daily to do one small thing.
Doing one small task a day is the best way to build that muscle of habit so that maintaining these spaces will be easy in the future.
Tidy people do tiny things all day long.
So you don’t have to do it all at once… you do a little each day and eventually your room or space is organized and then easy to maintain.
