In an attempt to motivate myself to complete all my weekend chores, I turn to Benjamin Franklin:
Tolerate no uncleanliness in body, clothes, or habitation.
Of course, keeping everything clean appears to be a never ending task that can consume your whole life if you let it. Where is the limit? I’m not sure, but I do find that the time spent (at least once a week) creating order in your life, through ordinary household chores and GTD weekly reviews, definitely helps keep my world flowing smoother.
