Think of your big dreams. At this moment, what do you have a better idea of how to do? How to wash your laundry and sort your mail or how to achieve your big dreams?
Asked another way, which activity are you more likely to complete today, cleaning out your car or climbing to the pinnacle of your career?
We often tend to let the common everyday tasks that we know so well go undone because they can seem to take too much time, to be too boring, to be beneath what we are capable of.
Why fold underwear and clean our shower when we are focusing on being a millionaire?
We could adopt the motto that life is too short to vacuum, dust, clean the windows and take out trash.
Or we could celebrate these simple activities that make our living spaces look, smell and feel so good.
These simple activities also provide us with a sense of accomplishment and a sense that we are capable of ordering and creating our world.
Our dreams involve the same things, ordering, creating, accomplishing.
What would it be like, rather than thinking of cleaning the bathroom as a major drag, if we thought of it as practicing the same skills we need to achieve our dreams?
