It is astounding what can happen if you do something for 10 minutes a day, every single day.Something that really matters to you. Something that is going to help you achieve your goals, change your life, and make a difference in the world.

Since it is almost impossible to believe that this is true, you may want to stop reading right now and just try it. If you want a bit more convincing, please read on.

Pick a "thing." Really, anything at all that you wish you were doing but you're not. Exercising? Pick that. Writing a weekly blog post? Pick that. Growing your own garden? Pick that.
​Learning new software
? Pick that.

Once you have selected your target activity, all you have to do is spend 10 minutes doing it
​ ​
every single day.  Keep track. Write it down on your calendar after you've done your daily 10. The magic in this approach is three fold:

Most of us can convince ourselves to do nearly anything (even exercise) if we only have to do it for 10 minutes. Set the timer. When 10 minutes is up, you're done.

Once we get started, sometimes we get into the flow, and pretty soon we've actually accomplished something noteworthy.

A daily practice becomes a habit. Once it's a habit, you can pick a new "thing" to incorporate into your life.

So go ahead, devote 10 minutes of yourself every day to doing something important and see what happens. What do you have to lose? It's only 10 minutes!

Event professionals are creative, courageous communicators enabling positive change in our world.
