Hi all!  It’s Monday again.

Did you have a good weekend?

Mine was “full, full, full,” as Eloise’s nanny would say!  I’m glad, glad, glad to be back at the office, and so glad to be celebrating Monday with my own special 5 Minute project.

You remember how this challenge goes, right?

5 Minute Monday is about doing something you’ve been putting off in order to drive back ugly procrastination.  We can do anything, if we only have to do it for 5 minutes, right? Let me repeat that…

WE can do ANYTHING if we ONLY have to do it for 5 Minutes!!!!!

On 5 Minute Mondays you only have to do “it” for 5 minutes.  So what will your “it” be today?

Will you sort the laundry for 5 minutes?

Or maybe you’ll clean out your pantry for 5 minutes?

How about meal planning for 5 minutes?

Maybe 5 minutes cleaning the range top is on your short list. 

Or could be you’d like to read an Op Ed piece on Donald Trump, or Hillary Clinton, or a host of others vying for the job of POTUS in November?  It’s 5 Minute Monday–go ahead, have at it!

Recent 5 Minute Monday projects have included…

Cleaning out the HEPA filters in air purifiers.

Catching up on blogging assignments.

Sending appreciation notes to co-workers.

Even playing with the dog or cat for five minutes (or more!). 

What will your 5 Minute Monday challenge be?

Today, I will be spending my 5 minutes at the water cooler, going over the weekend’s happenings with my co-workers.  This is valuable networking stuff I rarely do, but that benefits all involved.  It’s good to laugh together with the people you work with, especially when the work you do is serious most of the time. Today, I will play at the water cooler for FIVE WHOLE MINUTES.  Yipee!

I’ll stop by later to let ya know how it goes.

What will you do for 5 minutes today that you have not done in a long, long time.  What could you do for 5 minutes today that would bring 10 minutes worth of joy to your life?
