Give it 15 minutes
Chasing dreams and getting stuff done can sometimes feel like a tall task.
That’s why Give it 15 is so awesome and effective: by taking the abstract BIG and actualizing it into small increments, you can orchestrate moments of accomplishment 15 minutes at a time.
A quarter-of-an-hour is long enough to require focus and commitment but also short enough to feel like it’s not that big of a deal. Win-win.
Pick something to do
Decide on a thing you want to give 15 minutes of your time, energy or attention to. This can be something that brings you joy (latte heart art); a task you want to complete (responding to emails); or a small step to something bigger (Je veux apprendre le Francais).
Set timer for 15 minutes
Take your phone, computer, Apple Watch, kitchen/egg timer, whatever works for you - set a timer for 15 minutes. Then forget about the time constraint. The clock is there to ensure you hold yourself accountable to giving a full 15 minutes - no more and no less.
do that thing!
Give it 15 minutes of full focus and effort. You picked this thing as something important to you for one reason or another (makes you happy, contributes to your productivity or helps you feel accomplished); free yourself from distractions and go all in for 15 minutes.

There are things that we put off doing because they just seem to be super time-consuming. Scheduling appointments. Sorting through emails. Tasks around the house like putting away laundry or organizing the pantry. And other projects that we haven’t yet tackled. Give it 15 and find how efficient and productive you can be with anything. Allocate 15 minutes, commit to getting as much done as you can in that allotment and move on. Done and done.
