It's Not About Intensity...

...It's about consistency."          -Simon Sinek 

 
I recently heard an interview with Simon Sinek. He's an author and speaker who focuses on leadership. That might seem like an odd topic to show up here, but his ideas are quite universal. As I was listening to him, I thought that if I replaced the word "leadership" with "organizing", his ideas would be just as relevant. One of my favorites is the fact that things like love and trust are not things that are created in a moment or as the result of a single event. They take time and they take consistent action. Being organized is exactly the same. You can spend a day or a weekend clearing out the basement, but if you don't take daily, consistent action, you won't have a satisfying relationship with your stuff. 
 
If you're interested, you can find the interview here.   
 
Here is the Question: 
 
What daily habit can you begin today to improve your relationship with your belongings?
