10 weeks to get control of your life


As I cleaned out a bookcase yesterday, I ran across a book I purchased in 2002 entitled “Simple Steps: 10 Weeks to Getting Control of your Life.”  I’m a sucker for self-help books.

I left all the books in a pile on the floor and climbed into my easy chair to read the entire book.  It was very inspirational and I’m launching the steps today.  Basically there is a to-do list for every day of the week for 10 weeks.

At the end of that time I should be in complete control of my environment.  Boy, I can’t wait!

Here is what I have to do today:

HousekeepingJunkDrawer7 *Walk 20 minutes

*Drink eight cups of water;

*Clear out one drawer/cabinet/closet space (I guess I’ll finish the bookcase);

*Keep a daily food journal;

*Do some isometric exercises every time I stop at a traffic light;

That sounds easy enough.

Each week you add a few more simple steps until “Voila!”, after you reach Week 10, you have gained control of your life, home, health, and spirit.  I hope the system works.

It was devised by three women in a small town in Connecticut who were having a hard time dealing with their daily lives.  They put it all down on paper, went on Oprah, and made a bundle of money.  I paid $12.95 for their book, but it was a bargain – IF it works.
