#5: Small Steps = Large Gains

“Today I am going to organized the garage”- what a huge undertaking that will be!  Rather than looking at the entire area or project as a whole, break it up into smaller sections.  Time yourself for 30 minutes– when you are done: stop.  Or pick just one drawer or one box to go through– then stop.  Many of us feel if we don’t complete the entire project we have failed> set yourself up for success by scheduling time each day/week to do part of the project.  As you complete the sections you will feel success and want to keep going. There is no organizing rule that says you have to do everything in one day.  Smaller, more manageable   sections will be easier to commit to and easier to finish.  

What small area will you work on today?
