“We‘re here to mop up the mess that was left behind.”
… a clean front yard.
I hired a part-time helper last year but she wasn’t doing a great job. So, one day I called her into the study and told that I was sorry but I have to let her go. I tipped her an extra $20 and thanked her for her services. As she was leaving she threw a $10 bill to our dog, Bobby. I asked her, “What was that for?” She replied, “Can’t forget my helper! Bobby has a great tongue, and always help me do the dishes!!!”
When it comes to household chores, whatever I find most difficult to do, I’ll take it on first. I find it best to tackle tougher chores early in the day when my energy and motivation are both at peak levels. By getting the tough task out of the way, it gives me the satisfaction and momentum to the rest of my day.
You may think you would be happiest with no chores at all. Perhaps you’re right, but that would not be the case for most people. Work and the satisfaction it brings seem to be a key ingredient in human happiness quotient.
