20 minutes a week

The shameless self-promotion post (Tell Us Yours!)

We all have projects we care about, our websites, books, collections of poetry, book, app, or small businness project. What I want to do here is tell the world about it. Many of these projects are completed, but we cannot get over the hurdle of promoting ourselves.

Time to change that. Who will believe in you if you don’t? 

Tell me, now, what your is your pot shot? What is the thing that gets you up in the morning?

Leave a comment and say what you want to say. Is it that book you’ve been trying to write? Is it a blog that you want more people to visit and follow? Is it an idea you want to promote? Is it a quote you really like? Tell us!

People will read this, I will read this. My friends, many of whom have dreams just like us will read this. And we will help each other.

It is through supporting each other that we will all achieve our goals, together. So tell us! What is your project?

This idea was originally Jodiellewellyn’s and as she knows, imitation is the best form of flattery! 😀


20 minutes a week, for a year

If you play 20 minutes of piano once a week, in a year you will be excellent, I promise. If you do anything for 20 minutes a week, you will be excellent.


You don’t necessarily have to play any songs, just figure out the notes and how they fit together, and then rhythms and fun things. Build constantly. Play around.

I don’t know one full song on the piano, but I can definitely make music and sometimes work in the main melodies of pieces, if you know what I mean. It’s good enough to spice up a party or impress a girl.

So many people are unwilling to try, because they are afraid of looking stupid. When you are willing to fail in front of others, it frees you to try new things, which allows you to build skill as you are constantly trying new (because your not afraid of failing).
