If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed
An oldie but a goodie!
Most days we do make the bed, maybe 9/10 days – but we can say for definite that at the end of the day, heading to a bed that is made up is a lot better than when you have to tidy the mess before you lay your head to rest!
We have much to say on this matter, literally and metaphorically, but I think that Admiral William H. McRaven’s famous words sum it up best;
“If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed. If you make your bed every morning, you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride, and it will encourage you to do another task, and another, and another. By the end of the day, that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed. Making your bed will also reinforce the fact that little things in life matter. If you can’t do the little things right, you’ll never be able to do the big things right. If, by chance, you have a miserable day, you will come home to a bed that’s made. That you made. And a made bed gives you encouragement that tomorrow will be better.”
