If I asked you to add a single one-minute chore to your regular cleaning routine per day, could you do it? Just one minute is all I ask.

I have been reading several books lately that reinforce the importance of small changes to your eating, cleaning, movement, saving, etc., over a long period of time. If you have read my book, you know there is an entire list of chores that can be accomplished in one minute.

Adding a one-minute cleaning project each day can start to make a big difference in the way your house looks and the way you feel about cleaning.

The hardest part about cleaning is the way we think about it. So many of us put off doing it because we have a mental aversion and that only makes it harder. If we can make hard things easy, or at least easier, that is a win for all of us.

Just try it for 10 days. Don’t skip any days. Add a one-minute cleaning project to your regular routine for the next 10 days and then reassess your progress. I would be interested to hear your results!
