So often I find myself putting things off, because I only have a minute. Well, turns out there are quite a few things I could be doing. When I stopped to consider what I could do in a minute here is what I came up with.
- Wash a couple of dishes.
- Make a bed.
- Start a load of laundry.
- Sweep the kitchen floor.
- Give a hug.
- Put a pair of shoes away.
- File a paper.
- Answer one email.
- Wipe the table.
- Water a plant.
- Say, “I love you.”
- Write a quick, encouraging note on someone’s Facebook wall.
- Change the toilet paper roll.
- Dust a piece of furniture.
- Throw away junk mail.
- Empty a trash can.
- Put away some toys.
- Give your spouse or child a shoulder rub.
- Wipe the bathroom mirror.
- Quickly clean the toilet bowl with a brush.
- Tickle your kids for a good laugh.
- Wipe the sink.
- Smile. And then smile again.
- Send a text to let someone know you are thinking about them.
- Take a picture to capture an ordinary moment.
- Add an item to the grocery list.
- Go to the bathroom. (I’m a mom, what can I say?)
- Pick up and quickly put away five items.
- Pay a bill.
- Put an item in your give-away box.
- Think on a truth about God.
- Put a book back on the bookshelf.
- Hang up a wet towel on the hook.
- Restock the diaper bag.
Don’t let “only having a minute” stop you from doing something. It is in adding these minutes together that we get things done. And I don’t know about you, but if I did all these things in a day, I would feel like it was a really profitable day. And that would only take 34 minutes!
What do you do when you only have a minute?
