Intentional House Cleaning Goals
We all dream of having a home that’s always clean and tidy. However, for many of us, that is a lofty goal. If you really want to accomplish always having a clean and well-run home, you first want to develop intentional house cleaning goals before you move forward.
Writing out your goals and the steps you need to take to ensure your dreams are realized is essential. Read on to learn how to do this.
Write Down Your Intentional House Cleaning Goals: Smart Method
Use the SMART method for goal-setting for your housekeeping.
- Specific: What are the things you want to achieve?
- Measurable: Are you able to track your progress?
- Attainable: Is it achievable?
- Relevant: Does it correspond with your goals to have a cleaner home?
- Timely: Can you set a “due date” when you work on it, daily or weekly?
Identify Short-Term Objectives
Let’s say your goal is to keep your kitchen clean. Here’s an example of an action plan written out.
October: Buy Organizers and Cleaning Supplies.
Look at what you can afford to buy this month regarding organizers and cleaning supplies. Only purchase the items you will use and need, rather than getting items that will go to waste (including things for organizing).
November: Start Cleaning
Now that you have everything off your list – start with small cleaning goals. It can be as simple as this:
- Week 1: keep the counters clean.
- Week 2: keep the counters clean and sweep daily.
Then, you’ll continue the previous week’s goals each week and add a new one until your kitchen stays clean.
Set Intentional House Cleaning Goals, But stay flexible too
Being intentional is a good thing, but you must also be flexible. When you get so wrapped up in achieving your goals, you can often miss what is happening right before you. Don’t let yourself become so intentional about achieving your goals right this second that you inadvertently self-sabotage your success.
