How does a house help increase your productivity? By Pam

A friend posted on his facebook page this week that we are still in a point in our society where we are all evaluated more by a sacrifice level than a personal productivity. That is sooo true!! 

I used to believe that, well, somehow I still believe it, I just change the focus of my sacrifices.

Waking up in the morning, prepare breakfast for the family, wake everybody up, get ready for work, work all day, stop at the store, go home, cook dinner, play/study/ take care of kids, prepare snacks, clean the house, do laundry, spend family time, drive kids to extracurricular activities, get everybody ready for bed, etc, etc, etc, the list can be infinite.

Well, I realized a long time ago that there is nothing wrong with getting help, so you can choose where you want to focus and dedicate your time. Mine are work, obviously, and kids sports. For everything else I have help: help from the family… (my husband is my rock and my kids are amazing) and help from strangers: I have my cleaning technicians come to my house minimum once a week and I have people cooking for us as often as possible and helping with laundry and other chores.

I decided to spend my precious time working because I do what I love. Everyday is a new challenge, or something new to create or a new opportunity to grow and I’m addicted to it.

I spend my time also driving my kids and spending hours watching their sport practices and games, because it is my quality time with them and our mutual learning experience. Sports teach them teamwork, competitiveness, hard work, no time to cry and move on, fairness, be prepared, mercy, success, celebration, passion, performance, excellence. There is no other place where I can share all that with them and be there for them for the wins and for losses.

So, I use house helpers in every aspect in order to gain time that I can spend consciously on the things that are important to me. It makes me more productive, more happy, more focused and overall closer to my goals. I’m a very productive person and I do more things in a day than the average. But I select where my talents can add more value, for everything else, I’m not afraid to ask for help. Why not?

Why Cleaning is important to me? By Pam

Since I have memories, my mom always has her house impeccable… perfect decor, shiny hardwood floors (the old kind that you buffer and wax at least once a week by hand!), never dirty dishes in the sink, all clothes ironed, beds perfectly made, polished silverware. “All this” without any of the modern life advantages… no vacuum cleaners, no dishwasher, no washing machine or dryer…”All this” also working full time and also coming home to cook a 3 tempo meal from scratch each day… hence the reason why I’m an only child, I guess. She had help anyways, there always was a maid/nanny that helped her with the housework and me: braiding my hair, ironing my school uniform, polishing my shoes, so I look perfect all the time. It was not a one person job, it was a “woman confraternity” helping each other to make it happen.

Despite this, my room was constantly a mess to the point that my mom eventually gave up on me. Clothes, toys, books, dirty plates, candy wrappers under the bed, on the bed, behind the bed. It was not pretty and a constant reason of the family tension. I didn’t understand back then what was the point to tidy up my room, pick up my dirty clothes or make my own bed…didn’t make sense and sounded like a complete waste of my time.

When I moved to college, during all my college years and first years of work, my brain developed in a way that overwhelmed me, daily,…millions of abstract ideas, creative ideas mixed with facts and science and rational thoughts…speeding hundreds of miles per hour inside my head. There was only one way to have peace and calm: A neat, clean and minimalistic environment. Making my exterior in order, helped me to control the interior creative chaos. Starting my day making my bed, having my closet color coded, all my pencils sharpen or a detailed list of “things to do” (when it was not a thing yet) was the base of my success. I realized that having a controlled and perfect surroundings setup a white canvas for my ideas to shape, develop, evolve and tangibilize. It worked and still does.

Cleaning is important to me because is the tool that I use to be successful, that I use to share that peace of mind with my peers, that I use to reset my world from the outside to the inside.

Cleaning is important to me because is the start of everything, it sets the tone of your work, it establishes your standards and pretty much works as a springboard to jump far away. As my mom, I also have help of course (and you should too).
