Too many jobs / not enough time?

Many times you hear people talking about the lack of time in their day and the amount of tasks or projects that are building up.

There is a simple approach to this that can be used to great effect and may be worth a go. It is the idea of drip feeding 10 minute tasks into your day.

Ten minutes isn't a lot of time and you can get a surprisingly large amount of work done in a focussed slot of 10 minutes.

Ten minutes isn't very long and so usually doesn't make us feel overwhelmed, this means that procrastination can be avoided.

Ten minutes done every day is fifty minutes in a normal working week. Many projects can be moved on with nearly an hour a week. Moreover, if the tasks or projects you have chosen to spend 10 minutes a day on are important, you will probably gain momentum and decide to spend more time on these and stop doing something that is less important.

So, if you find yourself getting stuck then try putting your hard to reach / hard to start projects into 10 minute slots and just get started.
