That’s the number of minutes we have in a day. Seems like so many doesn’t it?
One of my goals this year is to remove from the phrase “Where has the time gone?” from my life. I want to know what I have done with this very precious thing called time. (Last year I removed the word “busy” from my vocabulary so it seems to be a trend.)
After I made this declaration I walked into a client’s office and she had a small post-it on her desk that just said 1440. Of course I was curious and wanted to know the significance. She explained that it is the number of minutes in a day and reminds her to make every minute count.
I loved the idea!
Turns out I wasn’t alone; research by Forbes indicates that the most highly successful people think in terms of minutes not hours. Many people would agree that most hour-long meetings could really be 15 minutes. Changing your daily schedule into 15-minute blocks rather than hour blocks is a total game changer. Because you can honestly do a lot with a minute!
Be prepared that if you ask me “where has the time gone?” I will have an answer for you. And FYI this blog was written in 15 minutes.
Onwards, I have 1425 minutes to go.
