Low-hanging Tasks

Mopping up after a recent episode of home improvement reminds me of how valuable it is to do the easy chores first. Long habitation at this site is a history of figuring out what will produce the best effect for the least effort. Simple tidying often is enough to make a room look its best. Clearing horizontal surfaces so that they can be cleaned is an amazingly productive change: light reflects engagingly from a clean worktop, and the bare space invites further production. Vacuuming an apparently clean floor renders it more reflective-even the light off a carpet looks fresher.


Getting solid waste out of the way is a no-brainer. In my book, any redundant artifact is solid waste. Sometimes I store it, and sometimes I store it in a bag marked thrift -30-
