Give a Little Bit

A tenuous link but here it is.

In the realm of productivity I have come across the idea of the small things. I have started to use this idea in my own plans for world domination. Er sorry that was a typo – my own plans for productivity. Let me explain…

We may have a grand plan to exercise for an hour a day, or to clean the house like a serial killer at a murder scene, or to write a chapter every day but reality doesn’t always allow for that. So what if we just do something small?

Going to the gym for just 15-20 minutes, or lifting weights for five minutes, may not seem like much but it is something. In the long run it is better to do a little than to do nothing.

Unrelated I have cancelled my gym membership.

Just 100 words a day is 36,500 by the end of the year. You would have a novel in three years. That is a long road but a least you are on your way.

Doing these little things gives the satisfaction of seeing an empty to-do list and, after the little things, time left can be used to do just a little more.

I just wanted to say that I have checked this post. I really have. Unfortunately my particular combination of dyslexia and dyspraxia makes it really hard for me to spot typos. Please enjoy and I’ll try not to make too many errors.

I have a Patreon page. I hope you will consider supporting this blog:

  1. Thank you Daniel. I have a writing project that has been rumbling around in my head but I have been finding myself reluctant to start. A book sometimes feels like such a huge project. I have just written 529 words. I have started! Woo hoo! I misread your ‘100 words a day’ as 500 – hence the 529, but I will try to continue regularly now, if not every day, and as you say I will have a book in a year.
