Your life can change in “2 minutes”

jamesclear.com
  • Set a 2 minute timer
  • Write a few words until the time runs out.

Imagine where 30 minutes of deliberate action everyday can take you?

To paint a better picture, I can share with you what the 2 minutes rule has helped me accomplish.

Am I an accomplished Medium writer yet? Nope.

Am I building a habit to help me get there? Hell yeah!

To summarize —

  • Read Atomic Habits (by James Clear)
  • Divide your target habit into chunks and do the smallest chunk for no more than 2 minutes a day.
  • The low effort of a 2 minute action makes it super easy to do. It is also “excuse proof”. Are you really telling me that you don’t have 2 minutes to spare?
  • Soon you will enjoy the action so much that you’ll end up doing more of it.
