Why not just do it now!

I sometimes ALWAYS have way too many things that I want/need to do. I keep most of them in my head until I get too overwhelmed and need to get them down on paper! After taking the time to write out as many things as I can get out of my head, I look over the list. Even more overwhelming!! Here’s the best productivity trick I ever read…

If it takes less than 10 minutes to complete the task…

Just do it now!

Really when you think about it, 10 minutes can be lost by checking Pinterest, or any social media site on your phone. It can be taken up by reading some random blog post! It can even be taken up just mindlessly walking around your house trying to remember what it was you were supposed to be doing.

Just do it now!

It’s actually incredible how many tasks require less than 10 minutes to do!

Make your to do list, add anything and everything you hope to do in the future, or want to do now, or even the chores you know you really should do. Include dreamer projects and fix up projects. Then star or underline all the tasks that require less than 10 minutes to COMPLETE the job. The job has to be completely done at the end. It will really boost your satisfaction to just cross off things from your list. And it perpetuates the excitement of just doing the task right now!

So go write out your list! Even if completing everything is impossible in one day or a week, or whatever amount of time. You can have an ongoing to do list!

Go do two things from it now! Like right now!!

Enjoy the extra time you have at the end of the day without the pressure of the entire list. Give yourself pride in knowing that you are tackling that list to the ground!

Just do it now!

Knowing that you have things on your list that you can complete quickly gives power to the two minutes it takes to reheat food in the microwave, or the five minutes here and there waiting for someone, or even the two minutes it takes to brush your teeth. Steal back that time.

Just do it now!

Thanks for coming home!
