5 minute sink

I used to be all cranky about doing housework, until I started doing two things:

1. Timing myself. (I was pleasantly surprised to discover so many tasks took less than five minutes.)


2. Practicing a concept I’ve used with my kids for yearsbreaking big jobs into smaller jobs.

For instance, instead of “cleaning the kitchen,” just clean the countertops, or the stovetop or . . . just load the dishwasher. (click on a photo to see a larger image and check out the little red clock)

Since I’m not only freakishly organized, but freakishly competitive with myself, I can get so much more done – so much faster! microactions, gotta love ’em
