Sometimes a project feels so big you don’t know where to begin. Or maybe it’s not so huge, but it feels easier to check your phone than starting what needs to get done.
Here’s a trick to shake off that paralysis of getting started:
Set yourself a timer for 15 minutes.
Really? 15 minutes? Yes, really.
I’m doing it right now – I’m using my own advice to get this newsletter out to you fantastic people!
I’ve found that 15 minutes is just a small enough chunk of time I can convince myself to just say no to one more cute cat video, put my head down, and start chipping away at what I need to do.
And, 15 minutes is just long enough to get into the groove and want to keep jamming out on what I’m working on. Maybe set that timer for another round and see if I can finish something faster than I expected!
Bonus tip: Set the timer, then hide your phone. Temptation? What temptation?
What takes less than 15 minutes? Getting in touch to bring your upcoming event to the next level with visuals and creative process design to facilitate lasting action.
