If I could get one idea out to the masses it would simply be “5 minutes a day”. I truly believe that is all you need.
That’s all you need to start reading a book. That’s all you need to sit down at the piano and begin learning the notes. That’s all you need to get on the Internet and start a blog.
That’s all you need to deepen your faith and walk with God. That’s all you need to start walking around the block and begin your body transformation. That’s all you need to start reconnecting with your spouse or children. All you need is 5 minutes a day.
They didn’t build Rome in a day.
When I first starting my web hosting business, over 10 years ago, a friend of mine told me, “Craig, they didn’t build Rome in a day.” I had heard that before but coming from a very successful business owner was encouraging. I knew it might take some time and persistence to make something of my business but like most people I wanted it faster.
There were days that I wanted to quit and didn’t feel like even turning on my computer. I told myself, ‘alright, give your business just 5 minutes.’ While a lot of my 5 minutes turned into hours, I would have never even started had I not told myself “just 5 minutes.” Each 5 minutes I gave was a step to the next level. Five minutes a day was a momentum builder.
Within 3 years I was making six figures with my hosting company. I bought expensive cars and took expensive vacations. (I grew up fairly poor so my first taste of money didn’t go well. More on that later.)
Five minutes a day was the key to my success.
Make “5 minutes a day” a part of your daily routine. It all starts with just 5 minutes.
Now it’s your turn, tell me what you plan on doing with your 5 minutes a day! Please comment below.
