I listen to Daren Hardy, without fail, Every Monday thru Friday.
At 6:30 AM, you will find me sitting in my kitchen with a cup of coffee waiting for Darren’s words of wisdom!
Today was no different, although my day wasn’t about my Business
Del~Lillian’s, It was about getting my house cleaned.
And having a clean house, makes you more productive in the end
This point was driven home to me this week when I finally cleaned my Quilting Studio.
It had become a disaster, as if the Tasmanian Devil himself had whirled through every nook and cranny …and left this mess in his wake.
Once the studio was cleaned I managed being more productive in two days than I had been in the past month.
(You’ll get to see a cleaned up Quilting Studio during the Island Batik Ambassadors Blog Hop “Our Favorite Things”)
Yes, Darren’s advice on staying focused would still come handy, today.
I know it is much too easy to pulled aside from chores, especially when you can check email and social media quickly and easily.
And I was determined to get the house done.
and it was going quite well.
After all, I did close the ipad and set it aside so there weren’t any “Shiny” Objects to distract…or so I thought 🙂
I had finished cleaning one bathroom and was ready to do the second, which is also the Laundry Room.
I took a load of clean wash out of the dryer….
Brought the basket into my dining room where
Fabric sitting on the table!
I set the basket down on a chair
and what do you think happened next?
Then I bust out laughing,
for one I had just shared the post on Facebook
and second I never thought about it but, I guess Fabric is my “Shiny Object”
I had to quickly put it aside…and get to the task at hand
Which I did!
The house is clean and now I can get back to playing with those fabrics!
