Want serious traction? Get a Mouse!

Updated: Feb 26, 2023

A few months ago, we had a mouse in our kitchen. He or she, snuck in through the pipes under our sink. He/she...let's just call it my motivating mouse..MM for short.

MM left it's calling cards all over my bowls, measuring cups and strainers. Not what you want to see when your ready to create dinner. Can you imagine the un-joy I felt!

As soon as I had a minute...not a clearly defined block of time but a minute, I cleaned out under every cupboard, thoroughly washed all my dishes, deep-deep-deep cleaned all my cabinets.

In the process of cleaning out, I downsized, simplified and rebooted my cabinets. My hubby...equally as motivated by MM. Filled any possible hole under the sink. He also caulked, insulated and got us mouse entry free.

We need our MM's. They spring us into action. The sky rocket up our to-do lists. They don't wait for the "perfect" moment in time. They catapult us forward...even when we don't have time or energy...they spur us into action!
