People seem to underestimate the power of a well made bed.
The common excuse of course is “I’m just going to mess it up again, why bother?” You aren’t wrong, it is a completely futile and arbitrary activity… But it’s an important one.
It isn’t the act of making the bed that’s important, it is the fact that you did. By making your bed you start off your day with a small victory, and set yourself on the path to more victories throughout the day.
It also sets in your mind the importance of the small things, helping to be more systematic in your activities and therefore doing them better.
Making your bed in the morning is the first step to a successful day.
Note: It is also awfully nice to fall into at the end of the day…
