I know what you are thinking. How can 5 minutes really accomplish much of anything? You are right – you won’t totally de clutter your office in 5 minutes one day. But 5 minutes over a series of days may get you that much closer to your goal. Just think, it is 20 minutes in a week (I’m not counting Sundays) – and in a month – you would have organized and de cluttered your office 125 minutes. But guess what – most likely you will spend more than 5 minutes a day some days. You’ll get into the groove of the task – you’ll likely want to finish that one pile. Or go through that one folder. Or recycle a bunch of papers… So put your timer on and go for it!
