What can I accomplish in 15 minutes?
Well... it all depends on which 15 minutes you are asking me about. I have certain “15 minutes” windows of time where I am like a lump on a log and other times I can whisk my whole entire main floor into ship-shape.
What are the differences between these little snippits of time? As a highly motivated person striving to raise highly motivated children, I have had to analyze this often.
First, I am a goal setter. Second, I am a goal accomplisher.
I have home-taught my children to a very high-level of proficiency on several different instruments. I’m not kidding when I say that I work concertos with 9 year olds, and that they love it.
What’s the secret to my success? 15 minutes. That’s it. I can take 15 minutes and set everything else in the world aside and put and extremely concentrated effort into making sure my child and I have a positive experience in music learning.
Where has this gotten us? I don’t think this blog post could be long enough to list all of the benefits and amazing fun we have had over the years as a performing family.
It’s 15 minutes a day working towards an effort for a positive experience between you and your child. Desire to have more positive experiences grow from here.
And, children are never too young to start a lifetime of positive experiences.
