DUM DUH DUM!
A timer day!
Yes, this is a brilliant approach to motivation and energy that I learned through CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) but coincidentally is recommended by a lot of business coaches too.
Set a timer for 15 minutes. Pick something from your list and just do it for 15 minutes. Put down. Re-set timer, pick something else (or the same task). Rinse and repeat. :) Do a fun task every 3rd 15 minutes. (I often choose World of Warcraft or a chapter from a book)
Most adults can easily focus for 15 minutes, even when tired or unmotivated. Often you end up working longer because once you're into it you'd like to finish that step/part/chapter/section. Even if you don't you'll find you've gotten a lot done in all those increments through the day. :) It's also a great way to tackle a really large task like organising or accounting.
So today is a 15 minute day for me! How about you? Who's with me?
