When you are really short of time — Here is a tip for you.

It can happen to anyone at anytime. You are suddenly short of time and getting frustrated when unable to get things done. For example:

  1. You are tired of your job which sucks all your time and energy. Want to start your own business but don’t find enough time.
  2. Someone is in hospital and you have to take care of your home as well as the patient in the hospital.
  3. Deadline is looming and your blog post/paper/speech/book is not ready.
  4. You cannot find time to exercise due to time crunch and not feeling well.
  5. Your business website is still not up because you are not able to write the specs and communicate with your developer.
  6. You want to learn a new computer programming language.

An Italian Pareto discovered that small amount of effort in the right direction can achieve most of the results. 20% of effort in right direction can produce 80% results.

For example:

  1. Cleaning and tidying up few things up can bring order to your home or office and no one is going to notice.
  2. Learning the 20 most used commands/structures of a programming language can get you productive enough to deliver a working software.
  3. A website built with default wordpress theme and couple of pages of brief description of your company and website is not really that good but better than not having one. (Even a free one on wordpress.com is better than not having at all.)
  4. 5 minutes daily body exercise is better than not doing it for weeks.
  5. Starting a small business with a very single product is better than not doing it at all.

You can always find time later to improve. But doing something is always better than doing nothing.
