1. 10 MINUTE CHORE BOX:
Rather than spending hours organizing, and doing it allyourself, create a 10 minute Chore Box for yourself--andone for each family member, if applicable.
Each person's box would contain specific chores or tasksthat need to be completed. The chores are written on slipsof paper, and take a maximum of 10 minutes each toaccomplish.
You can gear the tasks towards the person's abilities (e.g.while older kids can help out with vacuuming, a 3 year oldmay instead be responsible for putting away his/her toys.)
Each day, as a chore is completed, that slip of paper isplaced in a holding envelope until the Chore Box is empty.Then, when empty, the boxes are refilled, and the systemstarts over again. This also works well at the office!
2. 10 MINUTE PICK-UP:
Control the chaos. Schedule a consistent, '10 minutePick-up' each night. Set a timer to sound an alarm in 10minutes.
While the clock is ticking, all family members areresponsible for clearing out and putting away theirbelongings from the main family area.
When the timer sounds, you're all done. Give yourselves awarm round of applause for all you've accomplished.
3. 10 MINUTE 'WHEN I HAVE TIME' GOALS:
One of the oldest phrases in the book is, 'I'll do that,when I have the time.' Problem is, that time never seems tocome.
If you REALLY want to do something, the time can generallybe found pretty easily. For example, if you just won anall-expenses paid trip to the land of your dreams, you'dprobably find time to fit it into your busy schedulewithout much of a problem.
So, it's time to begin fitting in those things you want todo, and 10 Minute Goals can help. Schedule 10 minutes a dayto catch up on your reading, or to begin learning thatforeign language, or to simply spend having fun with yourchildren. Then, work on those goals when the schedule dateand time rolls around.
4. 10 MINUTE LUXURIES:
Don't forget to schedule a few 10 Minutes Luxuries per dayto do something nice for yourself.
Sometimes the day is so rushed and chaotic, that it's easyto forget the really important things like family, health,spirituality, personal time and so on.
Take that 10 minute vacation every day. You deserve it!
