Let’s Get Started!
Wake up, make your bed, (1)get dressed to shoes. While you do this you are in the bathroom so stop and (2)swish and swipe. Before you leave your bathroom, ask yourself, (3)What’ For Dinner? Go take the meat out you will be using.

Do the Weekly Habit for the specific day.
Reboot the laundry. While they are drying do the zone work for the current zone. Work on current monthly event.
Go back to laundry take out of dryer fold or hang and PUT AWAY.
(6)Make dinner early and always start out with filing a sink full of hot soapy water so you can clean as you cook.
After eating the only things that need to be cleaned are the plates, eating utensils glasses and put them in the dishwasher and (7)Shine Sink.
More than likely something you washed, dryed, fold or hang and put away is something you can simply use as (8)lay out clothes. Check what is going on for the coming day and put everything that is needed for the coming day at your (9)launch pad.
Get to bed at a decent hour and have a great sleep!
Wake up to a Shiny Sink!
