The All or Nothing Mentality doesn’t help! And it’s a great excuse for me to avoid doing things I should be doing. I’m talking about applying it to the small things and how that keeps my house from getting out of control. I also share how avoiding this mentality and just doing SOMETHING helps me get back on track after the routine free summer!

Dana, I’m so sorry for your loss. Praying for peace and healing for your family. I discovered your podcast back in February, and have been listening to all the episodes in order ever since. I just got caught up TODAY and am listening in real time! Whoo hoo! I love your advice and perspectives. After listening for a while, I think I am actually what you would call “normal” and yet I have benefitted so much from using your strategies. Doing the dishes was definitely a hangup for me. (I mean, it’s just not fair that I have to do them EVERY day, right?!) And I viewed decluttering as always being a project that I rarely had time for. Making the mental change from the all-or-nothing mentality has been the biggest game changer for me. Doing something (no matter how small) is always better than nothing. Blessings to you for sharing your hard-earned wisdom and real life solutions. I’m forever a fan!
So so so glad you are back from summer break! This was a great episode, I needed the reminder! Thanks!!
I’m so sorry for your loss, Dana. Thinking of you and your family and thank you soooo much for posting this encouragement to just “do something” / do ONE thing and every little but helps.

“don’t tell Dave Ramsey” LOL!
I found your Decluttering book this summer and listened to you read while decluttering my own home and also death cleaning after a loved one’s estate sale. You were my sanity link. I look forward to future podcasts and recommending your book & site. Thank you for doing what you do!
Sorry for your loss.
I’ve signed up for your 30-day newsletter and I recently got the one that begins with “we recently visited my mother-in-law” (about value)… such a strange feeling, and i don’t even know you or your MIL.
