Secrets of Success

Start Small - Just Start



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!

    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!"
