“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 recovering from my trip to Blissdom (read more here). I am normally really bad about continuing to live out of my suitcase for a week after my trip rather than unpacking right away. This week I will be spending 10 minutes a day unpacking and catching up on things I was unable to do like paying some bills.
Would you like to join me in a ten minute a day project this week?
