15 minutes

2010-05-02 15.50.51

In my little world, I break most things down in to 15 minute increments. I find that if I do maximize the use of these little snippets of time, I get things done. Lots of things, some times really big things like a queen sized quilt! I usually have 15 minutes that are open multiple times of day that I can choose to waste, or maximize its potential. I work full-time so I have to stay on top of chores and projects or I would never finish things! Here is a list of things I can do in 15 minutes that keeps me going!

I wanted to share some old quilt pictures in this post for emphasis of how I get things done. It helps to organize the day enough so you have a routine and this increases my productivity, you know a typical flow of the day.   I like to spend my time off of work doing more than cleaning and doing chores. I am not the master at time management but I think I have it down pretty well, at least enough to eat, wear clean clothes and sleep under a really comfy quilt!!
