Welcome to Give Me 10! Can it be that easy? 10 minutes to reach my goals – sign me up! Well, that’s what I hope you’ll do. And share with me – and the visitors to this site – what worked for you and your own solutions.
Why 10 minutes? Well, that’s about as big a block of unscheduled time as we get in our days. Usually, if you’re like me, you’d just putter during these moments of calm – check email, load the dishwasher, pay some bills. While the big things that keep sitting at the bottom of your to-do list keep waiting till you have a free night, or an empty desk. Well, when’s the last time you saw that?
We can put these brief moments to good use. You wonder how much can get done in 10 minutes? Well, I did, too. So I tested it out for a month. In that month, spending just 10 minutes a day on each of five goals, I did just plenty…
- Started and FINISHED that month’s book club book
- Created a women’s charitable organization that now has almost 100 participants
- Worked out more
- Cleaned and organized our garage
- Wrote a proposal letter for a book I hope to write about this topic (which will carry more weight when I can say I’ve sold the book!)
Why does this work? – because it fits into your life. You don’t need a full-time nanny or a chauffeur or an unscheduled weekend or an empty desk to make it work.
It really couldn’t be easier...
This is all you do – think of a few things you’d like to fit into your day, and promise yourself you’ll spend just 10 minutes a day on each of them.
I know, it’s embarrassingly simple – but it works.
Give it a try and see what you think!
Here’s a step-by-step walk through. First, Focus on 3-5 goals…
