Creativity before chores

Pretty sure I got this from Rick Ruben.

Applies both literally and metaphorically.

Literally—do creative work before the laundry and the washing up.

Metaphorically—do creative work before checking email, or working on bugs (for example).

No one will remember how efficient you were with the laundry. But people might remember that you self published a novel.

Obviously get your kids to school on time. Apart from that, the hoovering can wait.
