“The key to success whether you are trying to lose weight, break a bad habit or save money on your grocery bill is to consistently apply small changes over time.”
p. 27 Save More, Clip Less
One way I incorporate this principle of small changes over time is to choose a weekly project to work on ten minutes a day. Knowing it’s only ten minutes helps me to get started–even if the project seems overwhelming at first. Working on the goal daily helps me to develop discipline (hate the word, love the effects!).
If you read last week’s post, then you know that I planned to organize and backup the photos on my computer. I only worked on that project for five minutes this week, but then spent sometime this weekend finishing it.
Remember the NOW, 10 MIN A DAY and FILE folders (read more here)? This week I’ll be spending ten minutes a day on some leftover items items in the 10 MIN A DAY folder that I never took care of (oops!).
Would you like to join me in a ten minute a day project this week?
