My challenge is to spend 15 minutes every single day doing some form of housework, whether it's picking up the books I left all over the carpet in a reading binge, washing the dishes, vacuuming or doing some washing. I hope to form a habit that will allow my home to run at some sort of semi-clean level from day to day, rather than the current model of rampant deterioration followed by a desperate marathon of what feels like torture.
I chose 15 minutes because itís enough time to actually make a difference, yet short enough that it doesnít seem difficult. I would easily spend 15 minutes doing something like watching TV, painting my nails, or reading a magazine and think nothing of it. In fact, if you split it up, itís 7.5 minutes in the morning and 7.5 at night, about the same amount of time as making a phone call, looking for clean socks, or checking my email.
So whoís with me? Please post how it went, whether you managed to spend 15 minutes, and what you accomplished.
PS This challenge is not for people who are conscientious about housework. This challenge is for the desperate, the slobs and the people who are constantly at risk of disappearing under a layer of dirty clothes and empty coffee cups. If you wouldnít dream of going a week without vacuuming, and you know where the window cleaner is kept, you probably donít need to adopt this challenge.
