“Clean,” “neat,” and “organized” have very different meanings. Imagine three coffee mugs.

If they are sitting in the kitchen cupboard with their handles facing in the same direction, they are put away neatly. Furthermore, if all of the other coffee mugs are on the same shelf, and each mug is placed with others like it, they are organized.

However, if there are coffee stains inside them, or if your lipstick didn’t quite wash off, they are not clean. If these same mugs are sparkling inside and are neatly arranged, but are not in the right cupboard, they are not organized. Finally, if these clean mugs are in the correct cupboard, but are arranged in a haphazard manner, they are not neat.

Once you make it a habit, attention to all three will become effortless, almost automatic.
