  • taking out the trash
  • loading and emptying the dishwasher
  • vacuuming
  • cleaning the bathroom

There are also project tasks (tasks with a beginning, middle and end), such as…

  • making travel plans
  • fixing a loose board on a step
  • sorting through a box of slides
  • fixing a light fixture
  • taking toxic cleaners to a hazardous waste site
