Quick, name a personal project you have that keeps getting shifted to the back burner.
Is there a novel you’d like to write?
A new skill you’d like to learn?
Something around the house you’d like to check off as done?
A trip you’d like to plan?
Or is it something business-related, but not client-related? Like a new marketing plan? Or a product? Or a Money-Making Website?
All those things you want to do that don’t have deadlines attached to them… It can be pretty easy to let them slip.
But it can also be pretty easy to make progress, gain momentum, and finish those projects that seem to live at the bottom of your to-do list.
All you need is 15 minutes a day…
You can find that, right?
You can make it the first 15 minutes, right after you wake up… or the first 15 minutes after you sit down at your desk to work. It could be during your lunch break or after your work day or right before you go to bed.
Set a timer, and for 15 minutes, do as much as you can on your personal project. Then when the timer goes off, write down your next step, so you know where to start during your next 15-minute block.
At 15 minutes a day, it will take longer to complete the project than if you were dedicating big chunks of time to it… but if you keep putting the project off because you can’t find big chunks of time, this approach will mean you make steady progress… and eventually, you’ll check that project off your list.
