2-Minute Rule

If a task can be done in less than 2 minutes, don’t write it down or put it into a system or discuss it or think about it… just do it. Of course if you have a more important, more urgent job at that same moment, that one will win. But in general we often procrastinate or feel overwhelmed when sometimes it’s better to just get on with some small tasks, build momentum, clear the clutter and gain a degree of control. This works very well for full inboxes, and tends to be more effective when it’s not mixed with longer tasks. Devote 30 minutes to getting 2-minute jobs done and you will have completed 15 (at least!)
