Each day on one of my favorite Facebook groups, we post our to do lists then report back later with our progress. My list begins with the same item every day:
"1 DON'T BREAK THE CHAIN"
This is the idea: Jerry Seinfeld's Productivity Secret
This is my chain: 52 Weeks to an Organized Home
So far this is working for me. It's like Flylady but without the nagging. So far I've only broken the chain once--when I had the flu and pneumonia with a side of sinus infection--I gave myself permission to mark those days with half a chain and to make them up as I am able. So the chain has a weak spot but it's still holding on.
