Most people overestimate how much they can accomplish in a day and underestimate how much they can accomplish in a year.
If you spend just 5 minutes a day writing a short poem, by the end of the year you’ll have more than 300 poems, and if you throw away two-thirds of them, you’ll still have enough material to publish a book.
If you spend 5 minutes a day learning and practicing a new language, you’ll have basic communication skills in a year, and in a longer period, you might even get good at it.
If you spend just 5 minutes a day doing something to improve, you’ll spend 1.825 minutes on that in the course of a year, which translates to more than 30 hours of focused practice; spend 10 minutes a day, and you’ll double that.
What are you going to spend 5 minutes on today?
