To do a job quickly, I set a timer and try to beat it. For example, to clean the kitchen, I set the time for 20 min. It keeps me focused and you will be surprised what you can accomplish in 20 minutes. Putting clothes away? 15 minutes. Knowing I am playing beat the clock puts some fun in boring jobs.

When I am folding clothes I walk in place, I take each thing as folded and put it away, not a stack individually. It gets the job done and really doesnt take much longer but I get lots of steps and walking in doing it.
