Working at something for 5 or 10 minutes a day still makes progress. Just set a timer and go. Give yourself a list of what you’ll do every day for 5 to 10 minutes to promote your book, clean out a room, or set up birthday cards in advance for the year.

As a home school mom, daycare provider for 8 years (before and during home schooling), a direct sales rep, and a lot more – I learned a few things.
