“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!).
This week I’ll be spending ten minutes a day unpacking boxes (yay!). As you may have read previously, we moved last week and I am still trying to get everything unpacked and organized. It can be overwhelming at times, but by focusing on one part of the project for just ten minutes, I overcome my tendency toward procrastination.
I at least got the kitchen in some kind of order thanks to these great bookshelves.
