Twenty Minutes is Better than Zero Minutes

As far as I know there are 24 hours in a day. Your day, my day, everyone’s day. We all get the same amount. So why is it that some people seem to get so much more done in that space of time? How do they fit in all the work, chores, family time, errands, etc. and still have time to do fun stuff like knit? And sleep? I’ve always wondered if those prolific knitters secretly have a house full of dust bunnies and eat only take out pizza.

I’m always trying to find time to knit. But everything else seems to get in the way.

I had that same problem with exercise, too, a few years ago. Until I realized that an hour of exercise didn’t need to be done all at once. A little now and a little later adds up. And a twenty minute work out is better than zero minutes. 

So I’m taking that idea to my knitting. I can work in a few rows while I wait for the the wash to be done. Or after completing some onerous chore I can reward myself with extra knitting time. And I’ll make knitting a daily priority by putting it on my “to do” list. 

Sounds like a good plan. I’ll let you know if it works.
