Day 12: Take Five
Have you ever been about to leave work, but thought it would be best to stay late instead of leaving a stack of unfinished tasks on it? Or are you ever about to call it a night, and there is a load of laundry next to a pile of bills adjacent to a tower of dirty dishes? here is a way to simplify things: just pick five. They can be as big or as small as you want, or the tasks with the highest priorities. It can be dealing with five pieces of mail, or folding five pieces of laundry. Doing that little bit can make that mountain of work seem less daunting in the morning, and may even help you sleep better at night. It'll make you feel better because you've accomplished something, even if it's not a lot. It's not as much about clearing your desk, but clearing your head!
