A few months ago, I wrote a post audaciously titled, Do Conflict Better in 10 Minutes a Day. In what has proven to be a highly popular post, I asked, “…what if you gave yourself 10 minutes a day to work on strengthening the conflict skills or attitude you want to strengthen? If you were to give yourself 10 minutes a day to get better at conflict, what would you do with those 10 minutes? Ten simple minutes.”
If you’re one of the people who’s been intrigued by this idea, then you may be interested in this post from Lifehacker: Beat Procrastination with the 10 Minute Rule. Quoting Pyschology Today, the post reminds us that we can…
“Acknowledge, “I don’t feel like doing that,” but do it for 10 minutes anyway. That gets you over the hard work of initiation. After being involved in the activity for 10 minutes, then decide whether to continue. Once you’re involved, it’s easier to stay with a task. Succeeding at a task does not require that you like doing it.
Go ahead. Find those 10 minutes.
