Frustration & Stress
Some years ago I sat in a friends house drinking tea. I was stressed out, unhappy and frustrated. Life wasn’t going to plan and approaching mid thirties I felt time was running out. I told my friend how frustrated I felt, how exhausted I was with two children under two and how disappointed I was that I hadn’t achieved any of my dreams.
She asked me “If you could achieve one thing in the next couple of years what would it be?” I answered immediately “Write a book”, but in the same breath I said, “but where would I find the time?” I barely had time to go to the bathroom unaccompanied.
A Simple Solution
Her reply gave me a simple solution which didn’t just help me to write Chaos to Control, but has helped me to introduce many positive habits into my life and achieve many goals that I may not have done without it.
“Ten minutes a day can write a book”
These words shifted my perspective on how to live my life and how to change my world for the better. All of a sudden I stopped feeling overwhelmed and I saw possibility. For the first time I understood that it was achievable and that all I had to do was to commit to ten minutes a day. Surely I could do that?
What dreams have been eluding you?
What could you do with ten minutes a day? It may seem like too little time but it’s enough to break the hold that procrastination has over you. It gives you a way to overcome your fears and objections and just go for it.
What have you got to loose? Nothing except ten minutes.
Commit to Ten Minutes
The ten minute rule tricks your brain into taking action. If you only have to commit to ten minutes a day you are less likely to avoid the task.
Give it a go and let me know how you get on……
