2-Minute Tuesday #Anti-Procrastination Day
I am creating a holiday! There is National Donut Day, Siblings Day, National Macadamia Nut Day, so why not create a weekly anti-procrastination day! Here is to 2-Minute Tuesday #anti-procrastination day.
The rules are pretty simple: pick something that you have been putting off and spend just 2 minutes doing it. I think the most important thing is getting started. This is not the time to overthink or get sentimental about things. You just want to create a quick win. I have spent most of my 2-Minute Tuesdays with decluttering.
Here are the 2-Minute Tuesday Anti-Procrastination challenges that I have chosen. Do these or choose your own! And remember, you can do anything for 2 minutes!!
October 20, 2020: Today is all about paperwork. Do you need to organize bills or file for an LLC or get a Power of Attorney for financial and healthcare decisions? Are your insurance policies in a place where your family can find them? Do you have paper copies of bills that you no longer need? File, sign, shred, make an appointment or whatever needs to be done for 2 minutes today!
October 13, 2020: Take donations to the donation center. I have been gathering up things to donate with my weekly anti-procrastination day declutters. Today, I am taking them to the car and driving to the donation center! Check your local areas to find places that need gently used items that are in good condition (otherwise, just throw it away or recycle it).
October 6, 2020: Declutter office supplies. I am gathering up paper clips, binder clips, etc. I have a strange abundance of these!
September 29, 2020: Unused professional clothing. Work-from-home and generally more casual workplaces mean that I no longer need a lot of professional clothing anymore. Suit jackets, my dad's ties, uncomfortable dress shoes - decluttering!
September 22, 2020: Household chores. With helping my dad downsize, I have neglected things at my house. And then when they get neglected, stuff seems to become a magnet for other things! Granted, this was more than two minutes, but I decided to catch up on Suits while catching up on household chores. The 2-minute anti-procrastination exercise was mostly devoted to making my bed. This led to wanting more order and tidiness (and only 3 Suits episodes).
September 15, 2020: My dad's kitchen stuff. My dad down-sized his apartment, and I brought his extra stuff to my house to go through. This week, it's his kitchen stuff and figuring out what can stay and what can go!
September 8, 2020: Photos. Real, printed photos.
September 1, 2020: Photos. I am going to go through digital photos to get rid of ones that are blurry or screenshots. Phones take such great pictures that are easy to store. Since they are so easy to store, I have a bad habit of not deleting pictures that I don't want. Then when I get a new phone, there are so many pictures that it is a daunting task to go through them. So I back them all up (Samsung_062020). As a result, I have thousands and thousands of pictures.
August 25, 2020: Mail and paperwork (found $50)!
August 18, 2020: Email
August 11, 2020: Costume jewelry that I no longer wear - donate or throw out.
August 4, 2020: Clothes that I no longer wear - donate or throw out.
