How do you get motivated for the everyday tasks in your life?
I hate cleaning, so I don't do enough of it. Yesterday, I bought fresh flowers, and seeing them stuck in my messy, cluttered apartment made me want to clean--so I did, finally, and I enjoyed doing it. The flowers were like a magic potion for my motivation, and now I'm wondering if other things like this exist?
Does anyone else have small, specific things that help them accomplish the banal tasks of everyday life (going to the gym, running errands, leaving a warm bed on a cold morning, etc) with brio?
