Simplify your life in under 4 minutes

We are always trying to find time to get organized or simplify our lives.  If you want to stop waiting for free hours that never seem to appear, try taking advantage of small chunks of free time you didn’t realize you had.

The average commercial break takes between 3 – 4 minutes.  Rather than sitting through the commerical break, take advantage of that free time.    We’ve created a list of 10 things you can do in 4 minutes or less.  It is amazing how much you can accomplish when you know the clock is ticking.

  1. Throw a load of laundry in the washing machine.
  2. Fold a load of clothes from the dryer.
  3. Wash a sink full of dishes.
  4. Load or unload the dishwasher.
  5. Change the sheets.
  6. Sync your PDA.
  7. Cut flowers from the garden.
  8. Vacuum one room.
  9. Delete SPAM from your email account.
  10. Write a grocery list.

While these micro-tasks may seem insignificant.  Typically there are four commercial breaks in an hour long program.  The average American female watches between 18 – 20 hours of TV per week.  If you could knock off four of these tasks per hour of TV watched, you could accomplish all of the items on this list in just a few days.

What other tasks can you accomplish in under 4 minutes?  Please comment below.  Let’s help each other be more productive while simplifying our lives.
