Welcome to Day 4 of your Absolute Best New Year Challenge. We’re almost halfway through, and we hope that you’re starting to see the benefits of our challenge.
Time is one of the most precious and finite resources we have. We all only have 24 hours or 1440 minutes every day. This means that time is finite - unfortunately, we cannot create more time. However, we can bend it by being clever and more efficient with how we use it.
This is one of our favourite 'time bending' techniques. The Absolute Best 30 minute rule will help you make a huge impact in just a short amount of time. By investing just 30 minutes each day of focused time on a goal, skill or activity you will see a compounding impact over time.
Let's say you want to do some more exercise in 2023.
Start by walking just 30 minutes today. This may not seem like it would make a huge difference to your fitness, but let's see how this 30 minutes adds up.
Walk for 5 days this week and you have done an extra 2.5 hours of exercise.
Keep it up for 4 weeks and now you have added 10 hours to your tally!
Be disciplined to walk 5 days per week for 10 months and you have exercised for a whopping 100 hours extra. Fun Fact - did you know that if you were walking at average speed that would take you almost from Sydney to Melbourne!
Take some time today to think about how you can use the Absolute Best 30-minute rule. Some ideas to get you started:
Meditation or Mindfulness
Learning a new skill
Working on a passion project
Remember, small things add up to big things over time. While 30 minutes may not feel like it will have an impact immediately - we guarantee if you keep disciplined, the results will surprise you.
