1. Do you hate emptying the dishwasher? Here's an easy tip (you'll still have to empty it though):
Time your next emptying the dishwasher. You might be surprised at just how fast it's done.
Next time, you'll think to yourself - well I hate it but I only have to hate it for 1.35 minutes. I can take that.
2. Do you shy from reading some of your kids' favorite picture books because they're simply too long? Just do it one more time and time the reading. You might be surprised at just how fast it's done. Next time, you'll think to yourself - well it's long but my kids really love it and we'll have 10.35 minutes of great reading together, I have that much time, I do.
