You have twenty minutes until your next appointment. Remember the clock never stops. What are you going to do next?

Open Twitter or Tik Tok or Instagram? Nope that could take longer than 20 minutes.

Respond to an email? Why not?

Write a Medium article? I don’t know about you but that is what I am attempting to do.

Twenty minutes is plenty of time to accomplish something.

  • At 80 miles per hour you can travel 26.6667 miles in South Dakota, USA on Interstate-90 East and West or Interstate-29 North and South. (Thank you President Eisenhower)
  • Call your spouse and say “I Love you”
  • Call a customer and say “Thank you for using my services”

I am confident that your list is even better than mine?

Still not sure what to do?

  1. Learn something new? Read an article on Medium about setting up the new email landing page option.

2. Read something inspirational that will put you heart and mind in the proper space to allow great things to happen for you not to you.

3. Create a T-shirt design

Thanks for spending these few minutes with me brainstorming about how to invest 20 minutes of time.

I expect you have created some better ideas. Take a minute to respond and tell me one. You never know I may write a story about it and give you credit.
