If it bothers you, clean it. It's that simple.
I have my daily and weekly routines but it is very rare that I get through them all. Most of my days are spent keeping up with the day to day messes of life with a family. Morning and Evening routines are pretty stable for me even on difficult days but the daily and weekly routines are flexible.
So back to the tip of the day. "If it bothers you clean it." If you notice the light fixture in your bathroom is dusty. Clean it if it bothers you. Fingerprints on the light switch plate. Take care of it. Wet paw prints in the foyer, wipe them up. Did you empty the garbage can and the can looks a little nasty, clean it. Can you write your name in the dust on the coffee table, dust it. Most of these tasks take five minutes but it is still keeping you moving forward in taking care of your home.
Housekeeping isn't about perfection it's about keeping your home in working order.
