Here we are in the middle of a hectic week. I have several big projects hanging over my head that have deadlines this week. I HAVE to get them done.
I can’t explain how strong the urge is to ignore the kitchen. It’s just one night. The other things are much more important. No one at the events will care about how clean my kitchen was on Monday night if my presentations stink. No one will care about my kitchen at all.
But I do.
The fact is that I will have so much more time to work tomorrow if I don’t have to clean my kitchen. I will be fresher then when I need the creative juices to flow. No creativity needed to wipe the splattered chili off the counter.
I did it. I cleaned the kitchen but the urge to not do it was almost physical. Even though the habit has been developing well, it is not natural yet. It took real effort to put EVERYthing away instead of settling for “good enough.”
I have to do this. It has to be priority.
