Do something "wrong" on purpose...

This came to me from The Organizer Lady's newsletter. It sounds like the kind of advice I'd give to folks wanting to sensitize themselves to their actions, and/or overcome resistance to forming a new habit that would ultimately serve them. Give it a go and let me know how it worked for you!

AN EXPERIMENT: Let's try an experiment for today
and see what happens.

Choose one thing that is a problem to overcome and then do the wrong thing deliberately. For instance, if you think you should make your bed every day but keep failing to do it, deliberately mess it up further. If you fail to clean up your kitchen counter, deliberately pull all of the things out further and make the counter messier. If you fail to put your shoes up as a regular thing, instead of putting them up pull another pair of shoes out of the closet and put on the floor. The point of this is to sensitize you to the problem.

Do this in relation to one thing for today and see if this acts as an
impetus to view the behavior in a way that works for you. When you do it deliberately, you alert yourself to the undesired action.
