Make your Bed and Make a Million? - Koo De Kir
As I was getting dressed recently, staring at an unmade bed a certain unnamed person (Mr. Doesn’t Ever Make the Bed is his name aka MDEMB) never ever makes, a news snippet caught my ear. Matt Lauer announced that according to a Wall Street Journal report, one habit millionaires all seem to have in common is that they make their beds! I have to say I almost NEVER leave the house without making the bed. It drives me crazy to come home after a long, hard day to a messy bed. MDEMB, however, could care less about the bed making, but is annoyed to no end by general messiness. How ironic — I’m a bit messy. Though the bed is always made, it’s true that a virtual sh*t storm of other stuff (clothes, bags, laptops, a week’s worth of shoes…) is regularly surrounding the pristine but MADE bed. Somehow, as long as that bed is neat, I can look right past the rest of it. Having always been a sucker for beautiful bedding and the implied luxury of a crisply made bed, I get it that millionaires make their beds. But are they messy is my question? Maybe a follow up is in order, WSJ?
