I should try that…
I’ve had that happen.
The best way to get our house clean is to deliberately sit down to watch a movie or read a book. The state of my surroundings will gnaw at me and I’ll keep getting up to clean this, put that away… and eventually the whole thing’s done. If I actually plan to do the cleaning I’ll just get distracted by a book nearby and find excuses to put the work off.
The trick is to make the desirable outcome the product of a distraction.
