This Sparked Me!

Do something small.
Organize that pile of mail, find a place to keep your keys so that they are always in the same spot, organize your pots and pans, throw out an old prescription.
Do something small, it'll give you the push you need to get more done!

    Pick a spot and just do it. The time limit is a big help, too.

    It really doesn't take much time to straighten up one room, one area, or a kitchen table. People often say, "I don't have the time," but we all have 5 minutes!

    I remember the little saying they posted on a SP e-mail awhile back, and it keeps me going too. "You can't do everything at once, but you CAN do something at once!"

    This is so true, and something I often seem to forget. I don't have to do it ALL today, but getting started would be a good idea! Thanks for the reminder!!

    Great idea a little can lead to a little more!
