Spring Cleaning

It’s hard for me to understand why spring cleaning always comes in the spring. If we keep everything tidy all year long, I would think that that would be enough. However, don’t look for me to be the example. Right now, I am catching up on my spring cleaning from 2000. I feel good that I’m only 21 years behind on this. It means I’ve been able to live somewhere for two decades without moving.

As I do this spring cleaning, I keep on finding things that would be great to do and wonderful to play with. And it makes me sad that I’ve gone 20 years without these treasured items. Maybe, I should not hold spring as the only season to tidy things up. Maybe, I should do a deep clean with each season.

With each season, I could clean and dust the house, vacuum the floors, wash the windows, and put out the decorations for that season. It almost sounds as though there might be a method to this madness. I think I’ll try it.

How do you do your deep spring cleaning, and does it ever get lost in the day-to-day turmoil of modern life?

Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force.
