The sanity-saving productivity hack you won’t believe

    This is absolutely another one of life’s funny paradoxes. Do less work on the go and you will not only have more time but you will have more quality time. Kind of like the less I try to control life, the more everything falls into place. Or like the idea that you get more by giving. All are so true for me but not intuitive! Now, I can’t wait to separate my email accounts. Thank you so much for sharing this great life hack.
    My favorite new tid-bit is one I recently read on LifeHack.org. The idea is to apply myself for only two minutes to all those things I procrastinate. Once I am 2 minutes into the dreaded chore, I usually finish right away. Turns out my brain can readily accept the idea of doing just about anything for two minutes. So once I challenge myself to clean my drunk drawer or do my sit-ups for just two measly minutes, I am suddenly okay with starting the daunting task and before I know it I have to stop myself and move on to the next item.
    ( so sorry for the crazy long sentence but my brain does that). It is the momentum of starting a not so fun task that keeps me from accomplishing these stressors. But I don’t need to do my “Eye of The Tiger” anthem mental playback to do something for 2 tiny minutes. So this small life-hack has really helped me tend to those To Dos that were parked on my list for way to long. I hope it helps others to try this 2 minute challenge when facing their lurking tasks.
