Do Not Underestimate the Value of Housework...


Dear fellow Moms

Do not underestimate the value of so-called "mundane" housework at home. It gives you time to recharge and reflect. And do not allow the world to under value your work.

Stephen Covey teaches that the 7th habit of Highly Effective Families is:

"Sharpening the saw"

And being a part-time working mom allows me time to practise just that :-) Instead of running like a mouse on a treadmill day-in-and-day-out, it allows me more work-life balance, time to think, learn and reflect.

As I am doing the laundry and hanging the clothes for drying at home, I am listening to audio and "sharpening my saw".

And here is what I learned about leadership from the ancient Chinese sage, Lao Tze through Dr. Tan Lai Yong:

Go to the people
Live among them
Love them
Start with what they know
Build on what they have
But for the best leaders, when their task is accomplished, their work is done, the people will remark,

"We have done it ourselves."

Listen to this talk and may your life be enriched :-) :
