10 minute organizing tasks to help you get life back on track!
(Scroll to the end for this month’s 10 Minute Missions.)
“It’s only ten minutes. Why bother?”
Because ten minutes a day can change your life! And so can these 10 Minute Organizing Tasks.
Life is busy and complicated no matter what stage you’re in, and it’s easy to procrastinate because we don’t feel motivated.
But then we end up overwhelmed and with a mile-long to-do list.
I’ve found that by breaking down my organizing tasks into small, bite-sized pieces I’m much more motivated and productive throughout my day. And my life is much more organized because of it!
Why 10 Minute Organizing Tasks Work
Here’s why 10 minute organizing tasks work to keep your life on track.
Ten Minute Projects Are Do-able
Working for only ten minutes seems achievable and easy. By breaking those daunting projects into smaller parts I avoid feeling overwhelmed and experiencing a brain shutdown which means I don’t accomplish anything. Avoidance of important tasks may seem like the easiest path but there is always a consequence for our choice to live in denial and our failure to take action even though it may not be immediately evident.
Ten Minute Projects Bring Focus
Sometimes I fail to work on projects because I’m distracted by other things. Taking ten minutes to focus on just one task helps me to accomplish more because I’m concentrating on one area rather than trying to multi-task, which makes us way less productive.
And sometimes I end up spending a few more minutes on a task because once I’ve started it’s easier to keep going.
Ten Minute Projects Break Procrastination
Often I procrastinate because projects seem too big, too difficult, or too time-consuming to take on. When I think about only doing a little bit on a project, I break procrastination’s hold and get some momentum going. I’m much more likely to spend time on it later because I’ve already broken through the hardest part, which is getting started.
