(Soon this is what we'll see. 
Not quite yet.  But
it's coming.)

Today I'm on deadline left and right, and had to go and get a scan for a dental procedure.
So I really needed this post that I discovered scrolling briefly through past spring blogs.
I'm going to share it with you here, and get back to work.  Sometimes the help you need
is right in front of you.

This post is that for me today.

"I watched a video a couple of weeks ago about The Two Minute 
Rule. Apparently the fellow who was talking wrote a book about it.
But what's great, is the idea of thinking -- maybe if I just do this for
2 minutes, I can get it done.  (It did take a bit longer. Lol.) The point 
is that if you start something thinking maybe you can finish it in two 
minutes, you might keep going, and not even notice that you're working
way beyond two minutes. Smart.

Which is why I'm here.  It's been a very busy day. But I thought. 

Just write your blog. Spend two minutes.  And...here we are.

 I hope you had a beautiful day.

Have a loving your life day.

Hi Evelyn,

I think it's great for things like tidying a room. Thank you so much.
