“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 organizing the photos on my computer. You can read more about my digital photo organization method here. My laptop has been having issues for the last few weeks so I have been uploading all of my photos onto our desktop computer along with everyone else’s photos. I have never organized the photos on the desktop, and I honestly don’t want to, but I’m going to commit ten minutes a day to the project this week and see if I can make some headway! (It’s good to be able to find a photo you’re looking for in less than 30 minutes.)
Would you like to join me in a ten minute a day project this week?
