Block off a small chunk of time and complete any task that individually will take under 2 minutes each.
It sounds simple. And it works like a dream. As long as one task doesn't spiral out of control or you drift on to bigger tasks.
This common sense strategy has been promoted for years through productivity guru David Allen, author of "Get Things Done" who continually emphasised how much success itself fuels success.
Momentum and flow can be priceless when it comes to achievement. David below expands on his point:
"A lot of people procrastinate because they don’t know what their next action should be. Many times the next step on something is something that could be done fairly quickly. So the first thing to do is to make sure you’ve got everything broken down to the next action level. And then if you get a window of time, glance at all those actions and pick one that might fit within that kind of time frame. The truth is a lot of things take less than two minutes to get done."
