Everyone, or at least that I know, is always looking to get a lot done in less time to increase their productivity. Completing simple tasks during your busy day when time allows, can contribute to a routine, goal or a project.
Simple tasks are typically part of a routine, goal or a project as mentioned above. Breaking them down into small chunks, or simple tasks, is a good way to avoid overwhelm and to reach the end goal, which is completion.
Even if your project is to get the home, or part of your home cleaned and organized, that’s the end goal. Whether you call it a routine, goal or a project, whatever verbiage you can relate to, the end result is completion.
Accumulative simple tasks done over a period of time will get you to the finish line and provide a sense of accomplishment. That sense of accomplishment may provide the energy and motivation to see the light at the end of tunnel, and drive you to your end goal of completion.
Below is a list of simple tasks that I believe can be completed in 10 minutes or less. They came to mind as I sat down to write this article, but I’m sure this list is not all-inclusive. If you have others not on this list, I encourage you to post them in the comments section below.
