Commitment is really hard.
And trying out new things can be difficult, especially when you have lots of external pressure and the internal motivation is not necessarily there.
Can you relate?
If you find yourself in that sort of situation, I think one of the best things you can do for yourself is force constraints.
Time constraints, specifically, can give you the freedom to get things done while respecting the all-important reality that your time is not limitless.
I don’t know of a single human being who could not find 15 minutes or less, over the course of a day, to commit to something new they want to try.
Let’s make it practical: Content.
If you’re reading this, you are probably a coach, creator, or educator of some kind with a message to share. Maybe you’ve told yourself the lie that you don’t have the time to make content and put it out there.
And so I ask you: Do you have 15 minutes?
In 15 minutes, you could write a blog post, a Facebook post, take picture and post to Instagram, or something else.
Heck, you could even produce a 10 minute LIVE video on social media and have 5 minutes to engage with early commenters afterwards.
Now, here’s the unlock: Can you duplicate that 15 minutes across an entire work week?
By the way, this is exactly what I am doing (except with a 30 minute interval).
I decided that every day, 30 minutes would be reserved for writing content like this blog post.
Find 15 minutes. Find 10 minutes. Find 5!
But make time for what you want to do.
It’s the only way to move forward.
