Some of my current rules – these are essential:
1. When I write an appointment in my appointment book, put down both the time and the activity; either one without the other is not very useful.
Double check to make sure that it’s complete,accurate and legible.
2. When I’m getting gas, hang my keys on the gas tank door, so I won’t drive off with the gas hose – again.
3. When I’m backing out of the driveway, check carefully behind me before I start.
4. Keys only on front table; nowhere else, ever.
Are rules bad?
Some people are concerned that rules will be too constricting and burdensome. Not for me. Without them, my life would be chaos, which would be worse, and, once they become a habit, they’re not really rules anymore. I don’t have to think about them or apply them, I just do them.
But sometimes, I start slipping and have to regroup. Especially after a change in schedule or routine.
