Not as long as you think

We all have one. A project we’ve been putting off for some reason.

Because it will take too long.

Because it will be hard.

Because we’re afraid it won’t work out how we want it to.

But whatever it is, it probably only requires 4-6 hours of deep work.

And if it requires more time, most things won’t, that’s okay.

Put some time aside, turn your phone off and focus on what you need to get done. You’ll be surprised how far you can get in a day.

The other day we decided to test this. We’d been putting off building an Alexa Skill for a while.

Because we were scared.

Because it would take too long.

Because we didn’t know how.

Then we wrote on the whiteboard: ‘Today’s Goal: Publish an Alexa Skill by Midnight’

By 7:44 pm we clicked publish.

Our skill is called Four Minute Workout. When you activate it, Alexa will take you through a workout using only your bodyweight.

You can try it out for free, it’s on the Alexa Skills Store.

PS we made a short video showing how we did it.
