I recently started reading a book called Housework Blues: A Survival Guide. This book has been fantastic and is a great resource. I want to take a concept from this book and from Cobwebs Cupcakes and Crayons which is the five second rule. The idea is that if you do it now it will take only a brief moment, but if you wait it will take a lot longer.
Now this might sound like housework advice, and it is, but we can apply it nearly anywhere. Today I want to look at organization. If I spend a few minutes organizing 1 square foot of space then I am more likely to finish, and finish quickly, than if I save up and try to organize a whole room.
So todays advice is organization works best and builds the most momentum when you have successes. When you tackle those areas that we talked about in my previous post, which is what areas drive you crazy? Tackle those in small pieces first. If you spend five minutes a day working on an area you will be surprised at how quickly you can accomplish what you need to accomplish.
