I've been hammering away at my family for years about the little minutes. If you spend 15 minutes a day doing something, and you do it for six days, at the end of that week you will have accumulated a total of 90 minutes work on that project.
Work for 30 minutes a day (for six days) and it will give you a total of three hours of work that week. Think about that. Three hours! Is there some project that needs doing around your home but you keep putting it off because it's to big and you don't have the time?
If you spend as little as fifteen to thirty minutes a day (for six days), at the end of the week you would have anywhere from 90 minutes to 3 hours of work done. For as little a time investment as fifteen minutes a day!
Ninety minutes of work on a project may not seem like a lot. Three hours of work may not seem like much either. But if you're spending absolutely zero amount of hours on a project, then isn't an hour better than nothing? Isn't it better to move forward at a crawl than to not move forward at all?
You can sew an entire outfit in just fifteen minutes a day....if you keep at it every day until it's finished. You can clean your garage in just fifteen minutes a day....if you keep at it. You can build muscle or exercise and lose weight in just fifteen minutes a day....if you keep at it.
What project do you have at home that is waiting for your time and attention? What has been frustrating you but you keep putting it off because you just don't have the time to do it? What needs doing but isn't getting done because you keep waiting for huge blocks of time....that never come?
I know you can find fifteen minutes a day can't you? If you can't, can you find five minutes...three times a day? Isn't it worth the fifteen minutes if it means you can get started on some project that's been making you feel guilty or frustrating you?
Even five minutes a day will add up to a half hour at the end of six days. It all adds up. Take advantage of the little minutes, the little pockets of time to clean or accomplish something today. Get started on something today. After all, how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time!
