A tweak here and there can go a long way when you’re trying to fix your schedule. Sometimes the smallest change can make a big difference. Maybe you set a two-minute rule when completing undesirable chores or change the way you view the activity altogether. It’s not uncommon to whine about certain things we have to do during the day but renewing your mindset and telling yourself that you get to do something can help improve your perspective.
That being said, changing any part of your day (or mindset) can sound daunting compared to just keeping everything status quo or thinking you need to have lofty goals like the way you set a New Year’s Resolution.
You can miss out on the benefits of small tweaks if you’re stuck thinking this way. Most people can try to improve their day without having to go through a complete overhaul.
Recently, I was a part of a Money Talk News article that featured 30 small changes that can improve your life for the better. There are plenty of tips to go around in the article (many of these small changes don’t cost anything either). My tip is lucky number thirteen. You can read it here, but many of the tips can help you optimize how you spend your time and potentially improve your health, home, finances, and relationships.
Come clean. How much time are you spending on activities that might work against your productivity or happiness, and can your time be better utilized?
If you’re nodding your head, take a look at the article and circle back to it whenever you want to make a small tweak that can potentially make a big impact.
