Swamped, no time for Hobbies and for a trip to the doctors, and still need to arrange a holiday baby and to have time to buy gifts to relatives for the holidays. As not to forget anything, all the time and not go crazy, knows a chartered psychologist Anna Litvinchuk.
Are five effective techniques on how to find time for everything.
1. The two-minute rule
If the task takes less than two minutes — do it. Think about how many things we constantly put off, in two minutes or less. For example, it is not difficult to wash a few dishes immediately after a meal, not waiting for the sink overflow. Daily short cleaning of the house to avoid a long raking the rubble at the end of the week.
Saw the birthday reminder? Congratulate a call or message right now. Tomorrow will not be ashamed about a forgotten birthday.
2. The rule is 20 minutes
The essence of this rule is that do not just climb from the skin to accomplish your goal, and you can start to give this case a total of 20 minutes daily. This time interval can endure, even if you don’t want to do it. This rule is a great way of struggle against laziness and it is a wonderful motivation!

3. The rule is 72 hours (three days)
Its essence is that if you have any plans or dreams, you must begin implementation within 72 hours after their appearance. It can even be a very minor step, but your understanding of it must lead to the realization of the dream. Even record – this is a step.
4. Rule 21 of the day
If you repeat the same action for 21 days, it is deposited in the subconscious, and we begin to do it on the machine.
21 days is not a few minutes — the matter is serious and therefore need to do everything slowly: like any business, break the process of developing habits in small steps — try to survive one day, two days, and if a week to repeat the same or two weeks? And there are already easier because it is familiar and comfortable. Why 21 days? This period was experimentally proven in the United States: twenty people were given special glasses that turned all the images upside down and they had to wear these glasses around the clock. And that on the 21st day their brain has adapted to that situation and he began to flip all of the surrounding things, perceiving this image as usual.
Features: if you make at least one break, even if it falls on the 20th day, you used to have to re -; 21 days is only stage 1, is actually 100% the habit is formed in 40 days of continuous repetition of the desired action; 21 days allows you to understand whether you need these skills. If regular steps have failed and do not bring satisfaction, then it’s just “not yours”.
5. The rule of 10 thousand hours
10 thousand hours is a 5 years full day or 10 years at 3 hours a day. To succeed in any business, you need to lose her for 10 thousand hours. The rule was described by Malcolm Gladwell in his book “Geniuses and outsiders”, and his claim is that anyone, regardless of talent, skills, or inclinations, can become a professional in any business, spending on the development and improvement of 10 thousand hours.
“Start with two minutes consist of them 10 thousand hours on the way to your success,” advises Anna Litvinchuk.
