#jkltip For a day or two journal what you do, how you use your minutes, take out an actual calculator and add up the time “wasted” (you decide what that means) and jot down how you want to use your minutes better
When I sit down to support people with goals, this is one of the first changes we make. Take inventory of your minutes, like a food journal, but a time journal. I mean it just makes sense, even more than food. Food will always be here, but “time” you ain’t never getting back.
“10 minutes is better than no minutes” is a mantra I am incorporating. In the past, if I had a block of time that small I would waste it. I wouldn’t bother doing anything in terms of fitness, meetings, or work if all I had was ten minutes.
But our minutes add up and it is incredible how much more you can get out of your goals if you pay attention to making sure you use small gaps of time to be as productive as possible. It’s been amazing the amount of ten minute, or less tasks that have added to my larger goals that I have been able to implement with colleagues, mentors and friends in the last week alone.
Bottom line, sometimes a post can have an hour of thought, sometimes a video can be produced over the course of a year, but sometimes things need to be done quickly in the minutes you have, so use them wisely.
