I am working on that rule right now. I am on my second UFO in the last 2 months.

Great rule! I use it for the most part in my home. The sewing room is harder since I have too much fabric for my storage areas. Although, the clean it as you go rule is harder. I need a deep cleaning with the walls and drapes done. It gets harder with my arthritis acting up. Oh I press on and do it but, it puts me in a painful way for a couple days.

As a chef, it is sort of like a rule we have in the kitchen. Never go from one end of the kitchen to the other without taking something with you. There is always something that needs to go back where it was/go to the dish pit/go out to get worked on and, don't put it down once you get there...put it where it needs to end up.

I"m pretty good about doing that in the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, etc, but not in the sewing room! Although I'm trying to be better about that, I have a long ways to go.

This reminds me of a funny story. When I was younger, I was working full time as an agent in a real estate office, driving one hour each way to go to college full time and raising 2 small children with little help from my working hubby. My male boss called me into his office one day to tell me all about the, "one touch rule." He gave me a lengthy lecture on it, implying that I might be wasting time, in spite of being one of his best producers in the office. I often wonder if he reflects back on that conversation and ponders the fact that maybe it was a mistake. Probably not. I quit a month later and he went bankrupt a year later.

That being is a good rule.
