We’re doing “neglected corners” again this week. Neglected corners are areas of your home or homekeeping that don’t get as much attention as they need. Or even half the attention they need. In fact, they may not get any attention at all or maybe just “once in a blue moon.”
Keep it small and doable because we’re not only going to take care of that corner this week but we’re going to stop neglecting it entirely. If you need an example, look at the first neglected corners challenge.
Here’s what to do:
1) Pick a corner, literal or figurative. Choose something you can clean, fix, or otherwise address this week. Keep it bite-size. I can’t emphasis this enough. Success is essential. Make sure you have the tools to do this job and to continue to do it.
2) Clean, fix, or otherwise address the corner thoroughly. This means toothpicks and scrubbing toothbrushes, if necessary (even if you’re only cleaning three square inches).
3) Make a simple plan for maintaining that corner. Make an ideal plan. Then make a secondary plan, because chances are you won’t be able to keep up with the ideal plan perfectly. Also make a bare minimum place in case things really go awry.
4) Stick to one of your plans. Don’t let anything that isn’t bigger than you derail your plans.
