avoid procrastination in the new year

As you start the New Year, make a point to avoid procrastination by using the "five minute rule."

Tell yourself you only have to do a certain task for five minutes and then allow yourself to stop...unless you choose to continue.

Usually, the hardest part is getting started because most people view the task ahead as too overwhelming. If you simply make it a goal to "start"...even if it is only for 5 minutes, it will become more routine for you and it may even turn into a habit!! Now that would be a great way to start off the New Year!
