A Slob Comes Clean
Guest Coming In 60 Minutes .
Most important? A reality check. An hour is only 60 minutes, and you can’t go from disaster to perfection in that amount of time. But if you focus on the right things, you can make a major impact and be able to do the one thing that matters: enjoy the time with your guests.
Repeat this phrase to yourself over and over for the next hour: Follow the Visibility Rule.
The Visibility Rule is pretty self-explanatory, but does not come naturally to some people (people like me).
What will your guests actually see? Focus your effort there.
This is not the time to sort through the pesky basket of mateless socks that’s been bugging you for months.
Head to your front door, stand where your guests will enter, and see what they will see. You haven’t noticed that pile of papers on the coffee table because it has been sitting there for months. Seeing your home through the eyes of your guests will keep you on track as you make the most of the next sixty minutes.
