Description:

Ah, if we just had time to get EVERYTHING done... right? Well, we may not have four extra hours to get a big job finished every day, but all of us can find TEN minutes somewhere in our day. And it's surprising just how much can be done in ten minutes!!! So here's the plan... every day, take ten minutes and do one of the things listed below. (or one of your own list of things) Every several days (no set number, but often enough that they know you are actually keeping your end of the deal) PM your send-to partner here on swap-bot OR e-mail them (either or both) and just give them a little heads up on your progress, AND to encourage them in their own ten minute victories.

Within a few days of the end of the two week period, send your partner a piece of flat mail (postcard, note card, whatever) saying what you learned from this ten minute routine, or describing something you accomplished and feel good about, or even why you DIDN'T feel this swap was beneficial.

In ten minutes... you can change your world!!
