Thank you!! Challenges vs excuses should not have been as mind blowing as this just was. And it applies to more than just the clutter. This was very timely for me, an answer to prayer. Thank you!

Just had to say that the challenge v. excuse concept really hit home with me. What a difference it makes when you view things that way. This was one soapbox I needed to listen to. 🙂

First time visitor to your site and have started to listen to your podcast. There are always things we can learn from others on how to keep your room, home or garage tidy.
Thanks for the great podcast–I’ve been struggling with my home for quite a while, and I’m getting past the excuses; but this was good to hear. Loved the “Little Red Hen” reference–it’s one book I think EVERYONE should have to read (along with “The Little Engine That Could”). While that story is a great lesson in cooperation and mutual effort for mutual benefit, I have come to realize I have to do things for my own satisfaction. I want a well-organized home. I want a clean kitchen. I will feel better about my home when these are a reality, regardless of who else helped (or didn’t) achieve the successes. My challenge is to view my family’s participation, or lack thereof, as another challenge and not an excuse. I may have to be the Little Red Hen of the family–the difference is we will all share in the rewards.
