About 1% of the time, I properly clean the kitchen after I’ve made dinner. Every time, it feels good. It doesn’t take very long, and I like waking up and making my coffee in the morning in a clean kitchen.
I could talk about what an idiot I am for not doing it the other 99% of the time, but… c’est la vie.
The point is that this applies to everything. It’s almost as though leaving things in a state – literally or metaphorically – creates this ugly residue that makes it harder to be at peace. Open loops, you could call them.
Is there something you could do quickly and easily today that would make your tomorrow easier? Why not do it?
