Playing my video game. Checking FaceBook. Shopping online. "It's just a few minutes. It won't matter," I tell myself. And I'm right; that time doesn't "matter"--it doesn't move me toward any goal. Time on the computer, I realize, is time spent in neutral. Those minutes could be invested in the small steps that will add up to big changes. Just ten minutes of activity, ten minutes plan a meal, ten minute to fold a basket of laundry, ten minutes of filing papers. Those small, manageable investments will help me be healthier, and better organized. Even if it doesn't seem like much, it will add up. As Abraham Lincoln said, "I may walk slowly, but I never walk backward."
