Every day I walk in and make a crucial decision:
Do I set my stuff down on the counter or do I put it all away? And you know what affects my decision most of all…
Is there stuff already on the counter?
Because if there’s stuff already on the counter, it’s not worth trying to keep it tidy. It’s already not tidy so I might as well just dump my stuff.
But if the counter is spotless and glorious? I happily put each thing away where it goes. Things are wonderful and clean and I want to keep it that way. All is right with the world.
I call this kitchen counter inertia principle.
Because everyone loves imaginary pseudo-scientific principles.
Have you heard of inertia? It’s the (actual) physics principle that states an object in motion tends to stay in motion and an object at rest tends to stay at rest.
A tidy kitchen counter tends to stay tidy. A messy counter tends to stay messy.
And so are the days of our lives…
What is your life like?
Is it time to take back your kitchen counter? Time to take back your days? Your….mornings?
All it takes is a small action to get things in motion.
Sidenote: Registration for the Hello Mornings Challenge starts on Wednesday. Ahem…
