My wife and I started a major project…we are repainting every room in our house. Nothing is going untouched, and most surfaces are getting 3 coats due to a color change.
Inevitably, we keep going until its late and I’m tired and ready to quit. But when we get to that point, we’ve still got an hours worth of work to do like:
- Clean the brushes
- Cover the paint
- Fold the drop cloths
- Put away all equipment (rather than leave it all over the kitchen counter)
When you are ready to stop on your task or project, did you leave time to clean up? If not, then you either have to:
- Leave the mess, or
- Clean up while being exhausted (and possibly be late to your next appointment)
While we can leave a mess at home on occasion…we can’t leave a mess at work. So, plan time at the end for cleanup.
Thanks for listening.
