Tip Tuesday: Half-way

Tuesday, January 4, 2011

Some things seem overwhelming because we make them that way. Take me and vacuuming. I don't get the vacuum out unless I intend to vacuum the whole house. Sheesh. Extreme? All jobs are easier when broken into little pieces.

You know the old saying, "If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right." That's a bunch of baloney. There are plenty of things worth doing poorly or half-way.

Here are just a few suggestions:
  • Don't mop the whole floor, just spot clean the three biggest eyesores.
  • Don't have your kids clean their whole room, just have them pick up and put away their laundry.
  • Don't fold the blanket, just wad it up and hide it in the linen closet.
  • Go ahead, buy pizza for dinner tonight.
  • Pay half the mortgage. Oh wait. That one won't work. Don't. I repeat. Don't do that.
You get the idea. What can you do half-way today?
