Dust bunnies, that is. Clean is a good goal to have. It does not mean we will always meet our highest standard, but if we set the standard, then at least we are trying. Per a quote from Zig Ziglar “It is better to aim for the sky and reach the lightpost than aim for the lightpost and never get off the ground”. I keep that idea in the back of my brain somewhere and bring it out and dust it off when I need it.
There are some simple ways to keep a basically clean place. First thing is for everyone to clean up after themself. That seems simplistic, but there is a deeper truth there. It is not just about clean, but it is also a basic principle of respect. If you will take a habit per month (21 days is said to establish a new habit) and concentrate on that one, it will become a trait that will make life easier for yourself.
One of the hardest habits I work on developing is
putting something up as I come in the house instead of leaving it on the kitchen counter for “later”. Sometimes later does not come for a long time. That one item sitting there seems to be a magnet for other things to be left there to be put up “later”, too. I am working on making myself take those few extra steps and put it in its place so I can keep a clean place.
One of the best “clean” habits to develop is never leaving the kitchen dirty. Make it a goal to finish off those last couple of things before heading off to sleep. It keeps the bugs from joining the bunnies and leads to a cleaner way of living.
