If you spent one hour this weekend on learning something that will be useful to your career, that’s just an hour, right? Can one hour really accomplish all that much?
But, what if you spent an hour every weekend for the next 4 weeks?
Then again, what if you spent one hour every weekend for the full next year?
Suddenly, you would have amassed 52 hours or 3120 minutes. Not bad at all. If you picked up a book about an important but difficult topic – let’s say Statistics – and spent 3120 minutes on the topic, how much impact would that have on your life? If your work involves consuming large amounts of data, the effect is likely size-able. But, this could just as easily be an hour on artificial intelligence or cognitive psychology or selling.
One hour may not be much. But, string it together over time and the combination could be potent.
Definitely worth a shot.
