My 2-Foot Rule for Today

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Evergreen Olympic Realty, Olympia WA

John Henry recently blogged about the 2-Foot Rule.  As he writes, "the idea is simply you tackle 2 feet at a time" when you are faced with a mountain of work to do.  Start with a small, two-foot section to get it done.  It makes the task more manageable and helps crush procrastination!

 

This probably should have been turned into an ActiveRain Contest.  Hint, hint. 

 

Today, I thought I would put this 2-foot rule into practice.

 

I have this pantry that makes me nuts, and every time I open the door to look for something, I get irritated.  I have a mess of cookbooks at the bottom and duplicate spices and bottles of other mysterious stuff hiding in the back. 

 

 

I have put off trying to organize my pantry because there are three other sections like this.  For today, I tacked just one section.  It was my two-feet of work to accomplish today.

 

Here's my before:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And here is my after:

 

 

As John writes, he says accomplishing the 2-foot section can be contagious, and he is right.  I actually reorganized and cleaned out the other pantry sections, too!

 

So now that I have my pantry in order, maybe I can be motivated to bake some cookies and do some pop-by's to my clients!

Hi Francine Viola - a big congratulations to you. This may not seem like a big deal but it is. I have been slowly re-organizing also and I can feel a different energy in those areas.
