EP 8: Systems, Routines + Habits: Let me show you how to make them FUN


Imagine you’re on a dream vacation with your family and all you can think of is the clutter and disorganization you have waiting for you back home. For Corinne Morahan, vacations were spoiled just this way until she put in place a series of systems, habits, and routines for her and her family to follow. This transformation allowed her and her family to enjoy well-earned vacations and to experience the true freedom that only comes from being disciplined. 

What are the differences among systems, routines, and habits? Corinne will explain all three and why neither one works without the other. Without all three you will soon find yourself back where you started. To illustrate, she describes the way her family takes off their shoes and coats in the mud room, or vestibule, of the house as their first order of business when returning home. 

In between vacations is the comforting rhythm of day-to-day life. These same systems, habits, and routines for productivity and organization will help ensure you’re building a life you love and that you don’t need a vacation from!


  • “[It] was so magical because we were all so relaxed. We really got to enjoy being away. We had done a full reset of our house before we left. We were coming back on Saturday so we could do a Sunday reset before we started the next week, and we knew we could have a full week to just enjoy and relax and enjoy each others’ company.” (3:29 | Corinne Morahan)
  • “I know some people who consider themselves carefree and spontaneous really resist the idea of getting organized because they think it’s going to stifle them when the reality is it opens you up to so much spontaneity.” (4:12 | Corinne Morahan) 
  • “Hopefully, you’re not sick of hearing me say this by now, but I want us all to feel free to enjoy this one wild and crazy life.” (5:18 | Corinne Morahan)
  • “I like having a life that is a balance between the day-to-day rhythms, the systems, being at home and being able to go on big adventures. And if we can figure out the right systems, routines, and habits to optimize our lives, we can enjoy the day-to-day, and not just wait to enjoy until we go on these vacations.” (6:24 | Corinne Morahan) 
  • “Think about the freedom that you will get back in your life if you spend the time to do this. It’s so incredible.” (10:46 | Corinne Morahan)
