Yes, I see that ceiling fan is collecting dust, there's lint on the carpet (and if I look closely enough, I'm sure I'll find a gazillion dog hairs,) the breakfast dishes are still in the sink, and that bathroom sink refuses to clean itself. But, I've written 5,000 words this week. So, do I feel like I'm lazy, neglectful? In the past, all those things would have bothered me; I wouldn't be able to do anything else until everything was clean and in order. Now, I do my best to ignore it. Oh, it will get done, but in my time. If I want to accomplish any of my personal goals, such as creating time for writing, those other things will have to wait. In the end, a little dust on the furniture doesn't mean much.
