Making something clean isn't zen, the act of cleaning itself is zen. Zen. That's why I prefer to scrub the floors on my hands and knees instead of using a mop. And the big deal comes from that carrot of satisfaction outstretched on that stick of dust that I can never reach.
Anyway, there's no point in trying make other people understand, if you know where I'm coming from, then you know, otherwise it's impossible.
And of course, if I want to get over it I just have to move beyond, and that's exactly what I do, otherwise I'd never finish cleaning anything. Right now it just takes me a long time :P
