The One-Minute Post

As I clean my cluttered desk to start off the new year, I’m reminded of the sixty-second rule.  The rule states that if a task can be finished in under a minute, do it now instead of later.  If you’re anything like me, papers tend to pile up pretty quickly around my office.  I have a hard time tossing out some items of mail, and I’m never quite ready to discard coupons… even from vendors I have never used.

While I’m not particularly make a new year’s resolution, I am going to challenge myself to complete the simple one-minute tasks and hopefully have a mildly cleaner desk.  And while it took me slightly more than sixty ticks to write this, you were probably able to add this to your list of quickly completed tasks.
