Yesterday I talked about the power of spending ten minutes per day on something.
P.S. Let me let you in on a secret.
Practice is addicting. Once you get into a ten minute a day habit, you’re going to start stretching it to 15. 20. 30 or much more!
Here’s some more comparisons for you.
15 minutes per day = 90 hours per year.
Compare to: an entire school year of Rockford Aces rehearsals.
About the same as: Commercial time in one hour of television.
More time than: Complete requirements (classroom & road) for a teenager to earn an unrestricted Michigan drivers license)
20 minutes per day = 120 hours per year.
Compare to: a day-long retreat once a month for a year.
About the same as: the average Facebook user’s daily usage.
More time than: eight semesters of hour-long collegiate private lessons.
30 minutes per day = 180 hours per year.
Compare to: 6 hours a day, five days a week, for six weeks.
About the same as: the average one-way daily commute in the United States.
More time than: an entire week, 24 hours a day
An important point: Start small. 80% success of a 10 minute habit is still 48 hours/year. Quitting after a week of a 30-minute habit is only 3 1/2 hours. Get in the habit and then build on it.
