The Power of 15 Minutes… November 3, 2006

Posted by Sarah in personal, progress.

We’ve all heard that you can write your dissertation in 15 minutes a day.

“You can do anything for 15 minutes” is a mantra from the ladies at Flylady.

While I clearly need to put in more than 15 minutes a day if I’m ever going to actually finish this thing, I’m combining these concepts and doing my work 15 minutes at a time.  I have the ProdMe Widget for my Dashboard.   When I’m working, I have it set to alarm every 15 minutes with “You can do anything for 15 minutes” as a text reminder.

I like having that little bit of encouragement four times an hour, and if I do get distracted, it’s guaranteed not to last longer than 15 minutes.
And now I expect that my 15 minutes of Internet-time are just about up.  :^D
