Sometimes using a different word to think of a task in your home can move you forward on making progress in your home. When that happens, use the different word.
I have a Project Brain. Accepting that (which doesn’t mean accepting a messy house) has taken me far in this deslobification journey. I’m talking about the ways I have to resist my Project Brain and the ways I can embrace it.
Mentioned in this podcast:
Thanks for this podcast! I got a lot of insight into myself and my husband. I do not have a project brain. (I hate meal planning and organizing events and stuff like that.) I can do project planning, it’s just not where my brain naturally goes. On the other hand, I think my husband has a project brain, and this explains so much about the last 41 years. Maybe I can manage to stick with him for a few more years.
My laundry days are kind of a hybrid. I work in an office all week, so the daily loads don’t work for me. But I didn’t want to give over my whole weekend to chores, so I do a couple of loads on one day mid-week, and the rest on the weekend. Another example of what works best for one wouldn’t work for others.

Project Brain and 1 item to it’s final destination.
1. Found object=Beginning
2. My two feet taking object=Middle
3. Object to Final Destination =End
Project Brain: VERY HAPPY!!!
Love this equation!

Having recently binge listening to your podcast I have had some very helpful wins. For example today I washed my spare bedroom curtains carefully in the washing machine and hung them straight back up. The dried there perfectly well without wrinkles so did not need ironing. They look so much better. The room has progressed enough that I could even wash the windows while the curtains were down.
