what do you learn of yourself as you clean? Do you find you want to do so much you do it so fast you miss things? Are you so hard on yourself that you have become extremely picky and have to take care of every single detail so much so you fall behind or get exhausted and burned out? Are you the person who waits until you can not stand it anymore and finally does something about it, or does bits and pieces every day?
Think about it. Think about it good and hard. This is the kind of person you are, and this is how you would work for the lord. These same guidelines apply for scripture study and applying them to yourself because they go hand in hand. How you clean is how you study.
