I was done washing and rinsing the dishes and wiping off the counters before the song was over. I was so suprised! Seriously? That's all the time it takes to do a sink full of dishes? (The song is 3:22, I checked) Why don't I do that all the time? Can I really not spare an extra 3 minutes to really clean my kitchen well?
It made me wonder how many other things I put off becuase I "don't have the time", when I could proably get most of it done while I was making the excuse not to do it!
This reminded me of one of my favorite quotes, which used to be on my mirror, and will be again soon!
"Order your life more effectively and eliminate trivia, meaningless detail,
and activity. They waste the perishable, fixed, and limited resource of
Choose to emphasize those matters that have an eternal consequence."
Richard G. Scott, Making the Right Choices
