Be it ever so humble, there's no place like your very own Pig-Sty. What makes it that way ... Clutter! No matter how you slice it, clutter multiplies! ... We buy, we clutter. and then we de-Clutter. If you are like me, when things are out of sorts-I am out of sorts. Hard to think. Where did I leave my keys......My purse .... my CAR. You know the feeling when you go to the grocery store and run out the door forgetting your laundry list. Not a clue as to what you are running low on or out OF, nevertheless, you blunder around up, down, and around each aisle trying to fake it when clerks spot you and stop to ask if they can help you find something.
"Oh NO! " you fib, 'I know EXACTLY where I'm going!" . ..... So you continue to shop blindly and pitch things into your cart .... showing off your over the shoulder throw hand to demonstrate skill and confidence. And of course you buy the Econo size of mustard only to come home and find you already had three! ... Now you know breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the next three weeks will include LOTS of MUSTARD! ..
Let's face it. Even if you have the cleanest sty on the block, too much stuff makes you feel you are living in a Royal Pig-sty! Packing around extra stuff and shuffling it from place to place is a sure way to wear you down and out!. Well I turned our Pig-sty into a PALACE using Spark Guys just TEN MINUTES in the criss cross effect to start and adding more as I could.
Ringo Starr of the famous four Beatles sang "It don't come easy." ....This Beatle knew the score cause outside of instant pudding or instant rice, nothing worthwhile comes easy, fast or quick. Time is always involved. But the rewards to any of your goals! How does it feel when you complete one and walk in the victory? .... Here are some of mine.
Like Sparks ... It sparkles! Everything has a place.
No clutter makes for a tranquil cuisine.
Small pantry; easy to see.
I love being able to park my car in the garage and have ample room cos "stuff" is on shelves!
Recently I did a final make-over to both kitchen and dining room for more efficiency. And finished the garage. Did I do this in ten minutes? No, of course not, but I took one room + one small goal and began with even ten minutes focusing on that one goal. I sometimes used the ten minutes and most always at least doubled my time. Plus, every time I start with 10 minutes and more it builds momentum just like building a big snowball, it starts little but goes big!
Please don't get me wrong. We never did roll in the mud or share the same Hog trough. Just too much "stuff" from nearly forty years of marriage! ... Together we're as happy as a pair of pigs in sunshine!....::: Oh by the way: Have you applied the small goals Spark Guy talks about? ...and have it working for you in "Any" area of life? Would love to hear as we have a Weekly Testimony on the team! ....
Thanks for stopping by friends and have a good Friday and weekend! Did you know that on July 1st Spark Guy started the Small goals and commitment challenge team? ...... Hop onto this link and join in the Action! ... Lots going on! ....
