The Tipping Point and Home Cleaning

Written by: Chris Wadsworth

Tipping Point – nounTipping Point and Home Cleaning

The tipping point is that critical point in a situation, process, or system beyond which a significant and often unstoppable effect or change takes place.

In Sociology, a tipping point is a point in time when a group—or a large number of group members—rapidly and dramatically changes its behavior by widely adopting a previously rare practice.

Malcolm Gladwell wrote a bestselling book called “The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference” in 2000. With this book, the concept of a “Tipping Point” entered popular culture. The concept can be applied to many things and situations and this includes home cleaning.

It would go like this . . .

You normally keep your home clean but you have a big project at work or your little ones have a busy sports schedule and you let a couple of things go. The shoes and boots in the mudroom become disorganized or you don’t tidy up the countertops in the kitchen. Your normally clean mudroom and kitchen counters are now a bit cluttered. This may lead to the coats not being hung up properly or the mail being placed on the kitchen counter and remain there for a couple of days. This may lead to you rushing out of the house with the sink full of dishes. Then someone else can leave an unwashed dish next to the sink – why not – there is a bit of a mess everywhere else – what’s one more item.
