Sometimes the thought of getting started holds me back from just getting it done. In just slightly over 1 hour, I cleaned out the entertainment center and filled a whole box with books to donate. Then I dusted with a mixture of olive oil and lemon juice, loaded the dishwasher and cleaned out the sink, put laundry away and cleaned up the kitchen/dining room. Oh and I finally went around and refilled all the soap dispensers, something I've been meaning to get to for days.
Now I feel all productive and don't feel guilty about the next hour or two that I plan to lay on the couch and read a book before going to bed.
