Recently, I caught a short speech by a general in the military. He was discussing tasks.  He said that if you start the day by making your bed you have completed one task.  That will lead to completing several tasks throughout the day.  When you return home, it will be to a nicely made bed.    How many readers make their beds every day?  Many individuals don’t because they feel that it takes up extra time in their rush to leave for their daily commute.  For those that do not make their bed, at some point when they return home they still have to fix it to go to sleep.  The general had a point, though, once you start your day completing one task, the rest will seem easier.  People who are well organized find completing taskseffortless than the ones who don’t.  They seem to be able to face a project, organize by each section and then complete it.  If you have ever worked with a person who is lazy or disorganized, it is very difficult on a daily basis.  The organized person, particularly if they are a manager or supervisor, makes life at work much easier.  The lazy person can’t seem to find anything, and if they are a workmate you will end up doing most of the work while they take all the credit.  Having worked with lazy individuals, I have found their work areas to be a mess.  They don’t seem to have the consideration to keep things in order, dispose of their take away, or find an item needed for a project.  When you think about it, the general was right.  Completing one task at the beginning of the day helps you to complete several throughout the day.  Maybe that is why the military is so strict about making beds and keeping their personal areas clean.  In the Good Gus series, no one could be lazy.  All tasks had to be completed in order to survive.  The series is available on Kindle worldwide.  If you have daunting tasks ahead of you, before you start take a quick reading break and read “Misplaced Trust.”  It is available on 24 Symbols, Apple, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Page Foundry, Scribd, Playster and Tolino.
