The Power Hour

Tuesday, 21 April 2015

Today I want to share a quick tip with you, which I came across in the course of my reading over the last few weeks (can't remember exactly where, sorry!).

You may or may not be an organised person, but however you are I'm sure you always have an ongoing 'to do' list, things it takes you ages to get round to, or a pile of paperwork that you just can't face sorting out. In short, non-urgent stuff that drops to the bottom of your priority list, but hangs around in the background of your life bugging you.

Enter the power hour. The idea is that you dedicate just one hour a week to tackle those annoying little tasks. You blitz your list for 60 minutes only and get as much of it done as you can in that time. The time limit motivates you as you know you're not going to be there for hours, and you get stuff done. Winning!

I've given it a whirl over the past couple of weeks and it's been pretty effective.

What do you think about the power hour? Would it work for you? Have you got any other tips for seeing off tasks you've been meaning to finish for ages?
