If you have five minutes to spare….

Happy Friday Everyone!

I wanted to thank everyone for responding to my poll on how many email accounts you personally have.  I am excited to be working on the “Too much in my inbox” series.  The first part will post on Monday morning.

In the meantime – I want to announce a contest I am conducting.

I ran across an interesting article in last month’s copy of the Real Simple magazine (Jan, 2011).

What Can You Do with Five Minutes?

Do you ever find yourself with a few minutes to spare in between projects, or errands, or before bedtime, or before a meeting, or anytime really?  What do you do?  Besides check Facebook and Twitter, Real Simple listed about fifty or so ideas of how to fill small pockets of time.  Some of my favorites are:

  • throw out all expired coupons
  • likewise with five old manuals from electronics or appliances you no longer own
  • do two yoga poses
  • floss your teeth
  • test pens or markers and toss the dead ones
  • brush the cat
  • check your voicemail
  • write a thank you note
  • organize your computer desktop by filing things into the correct folders.

So I challenge you to make the most of the five-minute pockets of time and see how much you can accomplish.  Throughout the month of February, send me your ideas and the things you accomplished.  I”ll post them throughout the month and pick a random winner at the end of the month.  Winner will get a $10 Amazon.com gift card!

Challenge your friends and see what ideas they come up with.  Have them post their ideas too.

Good luck!
