How to Get Stuff Done 2 Minutes at a Time with the 2-Minute Tool

2-Minute Tool before & After - Get Stuff Done 2 minutes at a Time

I always love a good transformation story and want to share my own before-and-after. I helped my dad downsize this summer and had to store his furniture at my house during a 1-week gap between leases. I moved all of his stuff to my house one weekend (see the before picture) and moved some of it to his new place the following weekend. Then, I had to figure out what to do with the majority of his stuff.

I am not one of those people who looks at a pile like the "before" and gets excited about it. In fact, prior to 2020, I would have let that pile sit while daily telling myself "you really need to do something about it". Or, I would have moved it into a spare room or basement to deal with later. I would have "dealt" with the overwhelm of the project with inaction, procrastination, and negative thoughts. Since 2020 has been a period of immense growth and personal development, I have been working on taming negative thoughts and procrastination. Enter the 2-Minute Tool.
