A Little Trick for Beating Procrastination 
 
by May Monten June 29, 2005

But Rome wasn’t built in 15 minutes!

It’s true. Many tasks take more than 15 minutes. But by scheduling regular 15-minute sessions, over time your small efforts will add up.

Say you need to clean out your closet. Now there’s something you could procrastinate on forever! But if you work on it for 15-minutes every day, in a few days or a few weeks or a few months, depending on how big and how cluttered your closet is, the job will be done.

Get a timer

You can use the timer on a digital watch, or if you’re working at home the timer on a stove or a microwave. You can buy cheap timers in five-and-dime stores, or download free ones from the internet.

Remember, whatever kind of timer you use, when the 15 minutes are over and the alarm goes off -- stop working! And give yourself a pat on the back, while you’re at it.
