“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!).
Last week I planned (once again!) to organize the photos on my computer. Confession: I didn’t spend a single minute on this project. I don’t know why, but I seem to have a serious mental block about those photos.
So this week, I’m changing tactics. I am planning NOT to do anything with the photos and instead I will spend ten minutes a day in each room of the house organizing and/or decluttering.
Would you like to join me in a ten minute a day project this week? Choose an area you want to change or a project you have procrastinated on starting.
