Argh!!

Do you do this, too: find yourself tripping over small projects that you’ll do later and wading past tasks half completed that you are planning to get to one day? And, if you’re like me, when you finally tackle and complete those pesky little projects and tasks, you find that they took less than 15 minutes to finish—some of them took less than 5 minutes!

So why the heck was I stalling and dragging my feet?

I spent more time moving around the projects—promising to do them real soon—than it took to actually do them!!!

Jiminy!

Your homework today is to DO THOSE BITS AND BOBS!! Select one of them, set your timer for 15 minutes, then roll up your sleeves and dive in! Even if the job takes longer than 15 minutes, at least you’ve made some progress on it. Set your timer for another 15 minutes and dive in again.

Setting your timer for 15 minutes and working on a project, task, job, or THE NEXT STEP is a form of breaking it down into manageable chunks!

So get going and get at least some of those bits and bobs jobs done. The sooner you do that the sooner you can treat yourself with something fun!

WooHoo!

You can do it!

I’m so proud of you!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,

Lauren
