If a chore or the response to a problem takes two minutes or less, do it immediately. Some examples:

  • Put dishes into the dishwasher, not the sink.
  • Sort the mail immediately and throw the junk into the recycle bin or trash.
  • If you spill something, wipe or sweep it up immediately.
  • Toss clothes in the hamper rather than leaving them on the floor.

Note: This is an excellent rule to share with children.
