“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!).
As evidenced by this post being late, this week is crazily busy for us! We have friends visiting from Guatemala for the week, my son is getting his Driving Learner’s Permit and we are getting ready for Thanksgiving, all while continuing to do homeschool.
So my ten minute a day project is going to be making sure to do my morning routine every day: reading my Bible, exercising, doing a load of laundry, and getting dinner started in the morning (You can see a sample of my Weekly Planner here.). I’m already 0 for 2 on the exercise, but I’m determined to take my morning walk tomorrow!
Would you like to join me in a ten minute a day project this week?
Maybe you need to declutter before the holidays (read more here!) or you have another project you need to do before Thanksgiving week. When you decide what your Take TenTM project will be, you can leave a comment on this post to let us know what you’re planning–the more the merrier!
