This Sparked Me!

When I have a big job to organize, I break it up.....set the timer for say 20-30 minutes, turn on some music and get going! It works for me! Hope it helps you too!!!!! emoticon

    We do this at our house too. We have an ugly kitchen timer and I usually set it for 10 minutes "per" room.

    I like this and I do it too because I say to myself, I can do anything for 15-20 min and then I get it done!

    this is my strategy too.. especially for housework which I don't like too.. sometimes I even wear my blackberry and listen to music and wait for the timer to make the job go faster!
