How can anyone change in 10 minutes? Change is hard work and takes time, right? Truth is, we change when we want to and not before. Walking through the “gate of change” takes an instant; getting ready to walk through takes as long as we choose.

“10 minutes to change” is a challenge, a throwing down of a gauntlet to inspire growth and transformation, and also a hint to a useful process. Spend just 10 minutes of quiet time a day journaling, reading about the changes you want to create in your life, monitoring your progress. In a month, you will have spent more than 5 hours, in a year the equivalent of one and a half work weeks. Since one key to change and growth is feedback, repetition, and practice this method is highly effective.
