From Maid to Coach

From The Orga­niz­er Lady:

YOU CAN TELL SOMETHING IS WRONG—You can tell that some­thing is def­i­nite­ly wrong when you find your­self pick­ing up as a reg­u­lar thing after oth­ers who are old enough to do it them­selves. They leave their cere­al box­es and milk on the table and you put it up, or hunt up the per­pe­tra­tors to do the deed. They leave the bath­room and you hang up the towels. 

There may be a myr­i­ad of these events. The peo­ple in your house are too unaware, busy, or indif­fer­ent. After a while, you begin to give up. 

The only solu­tion is to leave the maid men­tal­i­ty and enter the coach men­tal­i­ty. Decide what you want your team to accom­plish and go about increas­ing their aware­ness, mak­ing sure they plan their sched­ules to help, and infuse them with enthu­si­asm for win­ning in the orga­ni­za­tion­al game. 

They may not want to join your team. The real­i­ty is that if they are in the fam­i­ly, they are on the team. Not easy but necessary.
