How a Robot Mop Can Save You Time

How a Robot Mop Can Save You Time

Time is of the essence for most of us, and we really couldn’t get enough of it. Some say life goes on and on, but others will tell you that it’s short – regardless of how you feel, it never hurts to cut as many corners as possible. There’s a new product out on the market that is as useful as it is nifty, which would be the robot mop.[1] The robot mop is a piece of equipment that will automatically go about cleaning your home while you’re away, which is fantastic for busy individuals (much like myself). I never have time to clean up around the house, and it’s become a pretty big problem. I own two dogs, both of which shed constantly and iI don’t keep up with the cleaning duties, it becomes pretty obvious that I’ve been neglecting my home. The right robot mop not only fixed that, but it allowed me to relax and use my time a little more freely.

Cleaning is a portion of life that we cannot avoid, but we can definitely make it easier! The best robot mop is not only one that would clean your home with ease, but one that wouldn’t have you struggling to pay for it either. There are affordable options, but you can expect to pay upwards of a hundred or so dollars for them. Still, I couldn’t be happier with my purchase!

Another thing I was interested in was a robot vacuum, but I decided to stick with a robot mop only because I could not afford both. A powerful and effective robot mop or vacuum is relatively expensive, which is the reason that I had to stick with only one of them. Below are some ways that investing in a robot mop comes in handy:

Pet Hair

Dealing with pet hair is always annoying, but with a robot mop, all I have to do is empty it out every other day or so. Pet hair can find its way just about anywhere, and since I love my pets, it’s not like I can just kick them out! A robot mop keeps my floors free from pet hair, allowing me to focus on other aspects of cleaning, such as cleaning my kitchen and bathroom.

Debris

There’s going to be tons of debris being tracked throughout your home, especially in places where there’s a lot of foot traffic. All it takes is a robot mop on the main level of your home to minimize the amount of debris you see around the house, and it may even make it so that you don’t need to clean at all. Robot mops aren’t good for giant rocks or anything of that nature, but even small pebbles and clumps of dirt are no match for this product. You may need to vacuum afterward to get the last bits and the sides, but the floor will still look good and be mostly cleaned nonetheless.

Forget About Cleaning Completely

If you get a robot mop with all of the “trimmings”, they’ll implement features like auto-on (and auto-off), as well as power-cleaning implementation. Some robot mops are going to be larger when compared to cheaper varieties, and thus, pack a larger cleaning punch. Identify how big the need for a robot mop is in your situation, and then purchase one accordingly. If time truly does equal money in your mind, then every single second counts.

Don’t waste any of it with cleaning – just buy a cleaning gadget, such as a robot mop, and leave your cleaning duties up to technology. You will be surprised how well they actually do the trick and that you don’t have to buy the best and most expensive one to get the job done either.

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

Now that 2011 is well underway and most people have fallen off the bandwagon when it comes to their New Year’s resolutions (myself included), it’s a good time to step back and take an honest look at our habits and the goals that we want to achieve.

Something that I have learned over the past few years is that if you track something, be it your eating habits, exercise, writing time, work time, etc. you become aware of the reality of the situation. This is why most diet gurus tell you to track what you eat for a week so you have an awareness of the of how you really eat before you start your diet and exercise regimen.

Tracking daily habits and progress towards goals is another way to see reality and create a way for you clearly review what you have accomplished over a set period of time. Tracking helps motivate you too; if I can make a change in my life and do it once a day for a period of time it makes me more apt to keep doing it.

So, if you have some goals and habits in mind that need tracked, all you need is a tracking tool. Today we’ll look at 7 different tools to help you keep track of your habits and goals.

Joe’s Goals

    Joe’s Goals is a web-based tool that allows users to track their habits and goals in an easy to use interface. Users can add as many goals/habits as they want and also check multiple times per day for those “extra productive days”. Something that is unique about Joe’s Goals is the way that you can keep track of negative habits such as eating out, smoking, etc. This can help you visualize the good things that you are doing as well as the negative things that you are doing in your life.

    Joe’s Goals is free with a subscription version giving you no ads and the “latest version” for $12 a year.

    Daytum

      Daytum

      is an in depth way of counting things that you do during the day and then presenting them to you in many different reports and groups. With Daytum you can add several different items to different custom categories such as work, school, home, etc. to keep track of your habits in each focus area of your life.

      Daytum is extremely in depth and there are a ton of settings for users to tweak. There is a free version that is pretty standard, but if you want more features and unlimited items and categories you’ll need Daytum Plus which is $4 a month.

      Excel or Numbers

        If you are the spreadsheet number cruncher type and the thought of using someone else’s idea of how you should track your habits turns you off, then creating your own Excel/Numbers/Google spreadsheet is the way to go. Not only do you have pretty much limitless ways to view, enter, and manipulate your goal and habit data, but you have complete control over your stuff and can make it private.

        What’s nice about spreadsheets is you can create reports and can customize your views in any way you see fit. Also, by using Dropbox, you can keep your tracker sheets anywhere you have a connection.

        Evernote

          I must admit, I am an Evernote junky, mostly because this tool is so ubiquitous. There are several ways you can implement habit/goal tracking with Evernote. You won’t be able to get nifty reports and graphs and such, but you will be able to access your goal tracking anywhere your are, be it iPhone, Android, Mac, PC, or web. With Evernote you pretty much have no excuse for not entering your daily habit and goal information as it is available anywhere.

          Evernote is free with a premium version available.

          Access or Bento

            If you like the idea of creating your own tracker via Excel or Numbers, you may be compelled to get even more creative with database tools like Access for Windows or Bento for Mac. These tools allow you to set up relational databases and even give you the option of setting up custom interfaces to interact with your data. Access is pretty powerful for personal database applications, and using it with other MS products, you can come up with some pretty awesome, in depth analysis and tracking of your habits and goals.

            Bento is extremely powerful and user friendly. Also with Bento you can get the iPhone and iPad app to keep your data anywhere you go.

            Analog Bonus: Pen and Paper

            All these digital tools are pretty nifty and have all sorts of bells and whistles, but there are some people out there that still swear by a notebook and pen. Just like using spreadsheets or personal databases, pen and paper gives you ultimate freedom and control when it comes to your set up. It also doesn’t lock you into anyone else’s idea of just how you should track your habits.

            Conclusion

            I can’t necessarily recommend which tool is the best for tracking your personal habits and goals, as all of them have their quirks. What I can do however (yes, it’s a bit of a cop-out) is tell you that the tool to use is whatever works best for you. I personally keep track of my daily habits and personal goals with a combo Evernote for input and then a Google spreadsheet for long-term tracking.

            What this all comes down to is not how or what tool you use, but finding what you are comfortable with and then getting busy with creating lasting habits and accomplishing short- and long-term goals.
