“Quotes in Action” – Day 25

Secret of adulthood: every to-do list should include at least one item that can be crossed off within five minutes ~ Gretchen Rubin

Yesterday we talked about setting priorities for your time. Today’s quote takes this one step further. It comes from organizing and productivity expert Gretchen Rubin, who said, “Secret of adulthood: Every to-do list should include at least one item that can be crossed off within five minutes.

I love this quote because it is simple and actionable. What feels better than crossing an item off of your list? I don’t know about you, but marking a task “completed” makes me feel terrific. Therefore, why not make sure every day has at least one task that we can do easily right off the bat; a small way to start each day feeling like a winner?

Today’s challenge is simply to add one item to your to-do list that you can complete in five minutes. If you really want to be a Rockstar, try to add such a task to your list each day for the rest of the month.

I think we might all really like this one. What five-minute task will you add?

  1. Pick dinner menu. I usually do that in the morning so I know if I need to thaw something. It’s a great idea because I usually have so many things on my list I don’t get done it’s nice to concentrate on what I did get done.
