The very word conjures up negative feelings and thoughts. Ugh! Who likes doing chores? No one. But, what if we changed the word? Would it make doing or wanting to do a chore more exciting? A quick synonym search on the word chore and up come the words tasks, duty, assignment and job. Hmm… not sure if I called dusting a duty it would make it more pleasing to perform. What about I have the task of dusting the living room today? Nope. That does not do it. How about we swap out the word chores for some other postive word? Think postive right? Perhaps this might make the activity more pleasing. Reverse psychology, no? Let’s see.
Positive spins to the word chore: aim, goals, ambition, aspiration, dream.
Let’s them out.
My aim is to dust the living room.
My goal is to dust the living room today.
My ambition of the day is to dust the living room. Hmmm…perhaps.
My DREAM is to dust the living room today. Nah.
Nope changing the word chore for a more positive word does not make performing the action any easier or better.
Arguement flawed. Dusting still sucks and I find it challenging to do.
My dream is to dust the living room! Haha. I love this. Great post.
