Today I have had a 20 minute shift day. This is where I can only cope with 20 minutes at a time. I had tireditis today. But I had a lot to do and needed to achieve something.
The idea came to me as I was making a decision to laze about all day drinking tea or do shifts of 20 minutes per “thing to do” and see if I could achieve anything at all.
I selected the things I would like to do and made a list – then I made a rule to run through the list as it was and not cherry pick the easy tasks.
This was Genius !!! I had a plan and I know that 20 minutes is easy to stick too so I managed to do absolutely loads of small tasks.
Including some weeding in the back garden, washing, walking the dog, tidying the kitchen, doing the dishwasher…. Now writing a blog – so I only have 20 minutes to get it done…
This 20 minute shift idea just pinged into my head and it really has enabled me to get on with some pretty boring stuff.
I also listened to some podcasts whilst doing the jobs so really multi tasked as really I could have allocated myself a 20 minute pod cast shift where I could have lolled around listening to great people speak.
It’s been really amusing that on Saturday I had a little confusion moment and blogged about it.. messages came in to me worried about my happiness factor…
Please know that It is making me much happier than I’ve ever been to have a giggle writing this blog… Most of the words are written with a tongue in cheek, flippant, school girl amused tone. Please read the words in this way.
For sure I am not taking myself or this blog as a serious, informative, piece of literature – this is for fun only.
One thing is for sure I can laugh at myself, I find what I think I’ve written funny and am not ashamed (maybe I should be) to say that on Saturday I laughed out Loud about the confusion that all the internet info has given me.
My 20 minutes Blog shift is nearly up and then I have to watch The Chase !!! because that’s on for longer than 20 minutes I will be multitasking by getting the ironing done too….
Genius hey ????? or completely Idiot???? Well I really don’t care… It’s how I got through today with out hitting the duvet or the sofa and my weeds are out (literally) –
I am surprised at how much I actually have done – but I’m not afraid to knock it down to 10 minutes I mean who makes the rules here???
Have a great evening and thank you all for reading
