"You will never find time for anything.
If you want time, you must make it."
1 big chore (size does not matter)
1 cup imagination
- Focus on the chore and what it looks like when it is
completed. It doesnít matter how large or small the
chore it. The chore can be any job that needs to be
- Look at the clock and decide when you want it to be
completed. It is more important for you to decide when
you want to be done with the chore than it is for you to
assume how long it will take you.
- In your imagination, see yourself being done at the
time youíve selected.
- Start the chore. Focus on your work, rather than the
