The 2 minute productivity rule

Hey friends,

There's a simple concept in productivity I came across a while back called the 2 minute rule.

If a task will take less than 2 minutes I'll do it now and if it takes longer I'll write it down.

I think about this many times each day when there's an empty plate or mug lying around, something in the wrong place or if I remember I have to text this person about x.

Every time, I feel that moment of Resistance, when I think “it’s fine, I can do this later”.

But sometimes, I remind myself of the two-minute rule. I tell myself that if I could follow this rule consistently, my life would be much more pleasant, and my brain less cluttered with little jobs that detract from the bigger picture.

About 50% of the time, this internal argument works and I get off my backside and do the thing. I’m still working on the other 50%.

Have a great week!
