“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!).
It’s official: I have a mental block against organizing my digital photos on my computer (read about my method here). This is now the third week (not consecutive) that I have made it a “priority” to get these photos done, and the third epic failure. I’m not sure why, but I just don’t want to start this project.
I don’t like putting pressure on myself, but I am going to risk public humiliation and make the photo job my Take TenTM project for one more week. if I can’t make some progress in the next seven days, I may have to give up. 🙂
Would you like to join me in a ten minute a day project this week?
