Oh…this is a bad one…
So many habits to break…and so many to create.
My biggest habit to break would be PROCRASTINATION. I’ll ALWAYS try to eek out a bit more time before I do something (especially if it’s unpleasant). However, if I’d have just done it when it needed to be done, it would probably have taken me 2 seconds and that’s it.
Believe it or not, I’ve been working on this. Just bit the bullet and cleaned my kitchen on Friday Night. It wasn’t filthy, just cluttered and a bit messy. But I made a promise to clean it, from top to bottom, on Friday night, and I did. Attacked it as soon as I got home. Did EVERYTHING. Even mopped the floor. TWICE! I want to mop it again, because it just doesn’t feel clean [yet] to me. And I’ve been KEEPING it clean! YAY ME! There are only 3 glasses in the sink (because they found their way to the kitchen during our 9 pm clean-up and the dishwasher had already been running). They’ll get thrown into the dishwasher tonight.
I even used my Kitchen Momentum to do a bit in the Dining Room! Granted, I’ve only been good at keeping the dining room table clutter-free, but it’s a start! I did sweep the floor. I’ve even sketched a plan for decorating the room (it requires procuring furniture from another room and purging furniture from the dining room). It’s not much, but I’m proud of me 🙂
Obviously, the end of my PROCRASTINATION habit is building my DO IT NOW habit. I’m trying to pass that one on to my son too. Which is where the 9 pm clean up comes from. told him we have to clean up the living room/dining room/kitchen before we go up for bed, every night. It’s so much nicer to get up to a CLEAN living room/dining room/kitchen every morning. Keeps the mood light and keeps us happy in the mornings (I am SO not a morning person).
Let’s hope we can keep up the good work!
