Design Intervention

  1. Consider starting each day with, “I will feel awesome if I accomplish the following three things…”

    Kimberley, when you spoke of the woman who organized your shoes by closed toe/open toe it made me think of a wonderful book, which sadly is out of print, called Confessions of an Organized Homemaker by Deniece Schofield. It has SO many simple suggestions and tools about planning, mindfulness, decluttering and efficiency. I highly recommend it.
