Longer than you think.
Though it doesn’t sound like it, 60 seconds is a lot of time. Ever been on hold. Struggled to finish a challenging workout. Waited with anticipation for news about a friend or loved one. A minute is longer than we think. If we pool minutes together, what we accomplish might surprise us.
The mind goes where we lead.
The brain instinctively acts to create the result we desire. Literally giving everything, it’s got, to give us what we want. Ever notice, when you’re looking for something you've lost, your mind creates several very realistic and viable scenarios of what happened and where you might find your lost item.
Tool of focus.
The brain uses time is much the same way. Time becomes a tool of focus. Setting a start and end time for tasks helps direct our energy and makes our effort more effective. Not only that, consciously choosing how you spend your time is empowering. You feel like you are making progress, it’s satisfying. Seeing results breeds hope and excitement about the possibilities of other ways you could positively impact your life.
Try it. See what happens.
Next time you feel overwhelmed, unsure how you’ll get it all done or aren't particularly excited about doing what you know you need to do. Try this technique. When we use small increments of time to tackle tasks, we are more productive and feel better in the process.
