What good habits do you have?
For me, it's picking up things around the house as soon as I see them and putting them immediately in their proper room. I've noticed that I say a mantra to myself that goes something like this "If I don't pick it up now, I will still need to pick it up later".
It's taken me years to get to this point. Today, someone called and asked if they could come over in a half hour. My house was in order but I remembered a time when I would have put their visit off for another day.
