My handheld Dyson vacuum runs for six minutes
Then it needs to be recharged.
At first I thought that was terrible. Six minutes!
Then I realized it meant I’d never be vacuuming for more than six minutes.
That makes it a lot easier to grab the Dyson when something needs to be done.
I know I’m never going to spend long vacuuming
And if something needs to be vacuumed up, I can always spare six minutes.
One reason people don’t keep up with doing their alignment work daily is, it can feel like too much of a time commitment.
But what if there were a six-minute maximum?
- Spend 6 minutes writing Appreciations.
- Or the Alphabet Process, where you pick a good-feeling word for each letter of the alphabet. You could come up with twenty-six good feeling words in 6 minutes.
- Meditate for 6 minutes.
- Write a good-feeling word like “fun” or “satisfying” over and over for 6 minutes. Usually I write a quarter-page of a word over and over. It’s a remarkably effective process.
Well, for the purpose of this article I just set a timer for six minutes and began writing the word Lucky. I filled nearly half a page.
It was a lot more fun than vacuuming.
