Fifteen minutes

Is there something you don’t want to do but you know you must? Can you give it just fifteen minutes?

It’s not that much time and it will be over before you know. Yet in that time you can change your trajectory.

Promise yourself a few minutes, then dive into the task. Even if you just get a little work done, that’s a whole lot better than nothing.

Yet there’s a good chance you’ll do even better than that. Because once you’re making a little progress, you might not want to stop.

Whether that ends up being the case or not, just give it a shot. You might be surprised at what you’re able to do.

Give it fifteen minutes. And you could very well get it done.

— Ralph Marston
