I have a mental checklist that I run through every morning when I leave the house. Do you?
It's very basic and it goes something like this:
- Coffee pot off
- Lights off
- Drapes open (for cats -- so they can watch the birds all day)
- Cats have food and water
- Fan in bathroom off
- Lunch in hand
It takes me 30 seconds -- but I think I need to add a few things to it. Or, rather, amend a few of the items to be more responsible.
"Coffee pot off" should become ... "Appropriate energy suckers unplugged."
"Lunch in hand" should include ... "Travel mug/SIGG in hand" (so that I'm not tempted to use the disposable stuff available at work).
I should also add: "Reusable bags in hand (or car)," because I often stop at the store on my way home from work and don't have a reusable bag with me.
I wonder if posting a physical list near the door would help?
What's on your list? What would you add?
