Starting Out

The idea: if Aristotle was right that “quality is not an act, it is a habit”, then habitual work at something should eventually produce a quality product.  

The project: This blog will be the product of fifteen minutes of work every single day.  

The questions: 

  1. Can every task associated with publishing a blog be broken down into 15 minute increments?
  2. Can something of quality be produced in this manner?
  3. What can be learned from the discipline of working on a project for only 15 minutes every day?
  4. Can distraction be eliminated for even 15 minutes at a time?
  5. Will this be at all a satisfying exercise?

Well that’s fifteen minutes down and I don’t know how many more to go.  Let’s see if I can leave this alone until tomorrow.
