Let's talk time management - the five-minute rule

Yes, my old friend, time management. Where have you been, buddy?

Today I made a concerted effort to create a list and cross things off, like I talked about here.

You know something? Lists work.

What else worked was the five-minute rule.

The five-minute rule is if you need to do something, and it only takes five minutes, DO IT RIGHT NOW. Don't put it off.

I cleared my list in record time today by doing all the five-minute tasks first, then tackling the other stuff.
