#7 Just 15 minutes – Timer Magic

Procrastinating? 15 minutes is all you need to finish without fuss. The power of 15-minute increments.


Fly Lady TimerRoutine tasks that are not my favorite:

  • Cleaning the bathrooms, ugh, especially the showers.
  • Doing dishes – will they ever end?
  • Dusting.

For tasks such as the above, I have learned to do the task for only 15 minutes – timer and all. I learned this from FlyLady, and it can be a lifesaver. When you do something for just 15 minutes, it becomes totally do-able. When the timer beeps, the permission to stop is there, and it is freeing.

This week, when you have something to do that you’d rather not do, give yourself the gift of 15 minutes. Set a timer (Google has one). If you find it works well, you may enjoy FlyLady’s website. Everything is about baby steps over there, and they work like a charm.

May you Fly Through Your Day,

Christine : )

      1. I know what you mean. I started feeling down awhile ago but I jogged and imagined me telling my story as an artist -just like they podcast I listen to and yeah feel BETTER. That happened in 15ish minutes.
