When you're short on time and energy (and, let's face it, motivation), these 5 minute tasks will keep your to-do list in check.
If you take a look at your to-do list, chances are it's taken up not with one or two big goals but, rather, lots of little tasks.
Mine is the same but here's the thing...
Because they're so small, you may find it too easy to procrastinate on them.
They end up rolling forward from one day to the next and before you know it, it's the weekend and you can't relax because you have a whole bunch of little chores to take care of.
Wouldn't it be better if you could find a way to slot them into your week, and in such a sneaky way that you barely even realise you're doing them?
Here's the trick for tackling those little tasks...
We all have small pockets of time throughout the week – when we're waiting for the kettle to boil or the microwave to ding, stuck on hold on the phone, sitting through an ad break...
Those are all perfect times to tick off a few quick tasks.
But here's the thing – if you don't have a plan for when those times arise, you'll miss your opportunity to be productive.
You'll spend so much time trying to decide what to do that the moment (or a large chunk of it, at least) will have passed.
That's why it's so important to have a list already on hand so, at the first sign of extra or unexpected time, you can dive in and start getting things done.
