For some time, I was confused between routines to be memorized and checklists of many more things to do. I think I finally got it, thanks to the FlyLady app, the 22 reminders at the bottom of the daily mission emails, and a few comments FlyLady has made in various musings. I think this is part of flywashing. The routines aren’t exactly to be memorized, but to become second nature. That’s like body memory as opposed to a memorization project such as a poem or Bible passage. That’s why we start, reinforce, or re-start one new one at a time, like wearing shoes this month.
The checklists are also things that need to be done, but are not second nature yet. I play a game with the FlyLady app that had helped me learn this and that challenges me without the P word. I check the app after I do my routines and see how many I did without having to read them. Before, I was checking the app before starting my routines and feeling overwhelmed from the beginning. I knew that wasn’t FlyLady’s intention; hence, the game. It works, and it makes it fun. Somewhere I read that if it’s fun, it will get done. Now I wonder where I heard that😃
