Nest: Day 42
The BOP update & review.
I hope you’ve been keeping your Brain on Paper (BOP) current. If not, today’s the day to update.
Also, it’s time to separate your BOP into useful sections: daily (every day), days of week (Monday through Sunday), weeks of month, and even months of year sections.
Go out and buy tabs for your three-ring binder, if that’s what you’re using, or stick-on tabs if you’re using a spiral notebook.
Here’s an example of how your BOP should be rearranged:
Polish your place twice
Shovel your shitspot
Decide on duds the night before
3H Half-Assed Housekeeping Hour
Laundry: Monday blues (and blacks)
For all these days of the week, add in your customizations, e.g.: wash goose poop off front porch
Terrible Tuesdays (Beat your bête noire)
Laundry: Tuesday towels
D-Days (declutter for 11 minutes or more)
Laundry: Wednesday whites
Chasing Day and Drive decon
Laundry: Rags, rugs, the rest
Free Your Mind Fridays
Laundry: frilles and woolies
Moodling (if you’re following the Create category)
Plus, have tabs for 5 weeks of month
Plus, have tabs for 12 months of year.
