“Live your life by the hour, not by the day. What will you achieve in the next hour?”

Frank Zane

This is why New Years resolutions don’t work, because you’re doomed to fail if you plan on doing it but once a year.

And this is why living life day to day, as they say, has its share of ups and downs too, because its relatively easy to put it off for another day.

Some day.

When you feel better.

First thing tomorrow.

I promise.

I’ll do it when I finally get.

I’ll begin when if I only.

And on and on it goes.

But what if you lived you life in an hour?

What if you focused your attention on just one thing, for just a solitary hour?

Where could you be in time?

Who could you become?

What could you dream up?

In just an hour.

In approximately sixty minutes. Give or take a few.

Would you live more meaningfully if you could jumped from one chunk of time to another?

Do you think you could embrace this strange old micro self-development revolution?

Can you give up an hour?


Before you go to bed.

To go for a run?

Lift some weights?

Clean the kitchen so you have a fresh start tomorrow.

Read a good book?

Call a friend you haven’t seen in a while?


Listen to some great music?

A whole album.

As it was produced by the artist.

It its entirety.

From beginning to end.

With your eyes closes and your ears open.




Or could you write something?

For an hour.

A very important hour.

An hour that could prove worth more than a decades that came before.

What do you have to lose?

Don’t be quick to dismiss the power of little things.

Don’t underestimate what you can get done with only a bit of time.

Don’t give up on yourself.

Think big but work small.

Dust your dreams of.

Freshen up the to do list.

Start something.

Don’t waste your hour.
