1) Learn to Dress for Success

How do you feel if you put on a new shirt or a new suit or for women, a new dress? Feel good I suppose. What happens if you feel good? You try to think positively and more practically. Chances are that these positive thoughts that have started at the beginning of your day may continue through out your work day or your regular day , leading you to perform your work or tasks with a positive impact and satisfaction.

This is not a theory but I believe a few scientists from Columbia University have actually proved this.

So, the next time you have 10 minutes to spare, think about how you can dress smartly, comfortably and crisply – in other words dress for success.

There are many articles on the internet which will tell you how to dress for success but I found these below links helpful (for your reference)

2) Learn Excel

Yes you can learn excel in under 10 mins. At least a few basic formulas which you will regularly use in your day to day work. In my view Excel is the most popular tool in this world. 81% of businesses use Excel as per a recent study ( I thought it would be 100% ..).

Based on where you are with excel (beginner vs advanced) there are a plethora of articles written by so many excel wizards all across the web , where you can for sure learn excel tricks in under 10 mins. Believe me this won’t be a waste of your time.

But my favorite is this guy who is awesome in excel: https://chandoo.org/wp/excel-tutorial/10things/

 

3) Learn to Take Photos

 

 

 

 

Time is constantly moving forward, life too is moving, days pass by, months pass by, years pass by and we get old and die. This is reality. So how can we capture our life’s moments, capture our memories? What if you want to tell one of your old stories to your children or grandchildren?. There is a simple solution to this – take photos lot of them. Media cannot be the same without photos and so does social media.. after all Instagram and Pinterest and many other great websites that we browse everyday cannot exist without photos. I don’t need to stress more that taking photos is really important in your life. Now-a-days mobile phones are great cameras too.

If you have a few minutes to spare, did I mention to try and take photos and capture some moments of your life ;). Try to take some quality photos and again you will find lots of articles showing you some great tips and techniques.

Who doesn’t want to look cool? It’s cool to have some fun and learn at the same time.

How about some magic tricks..cool? The great thing is you can learn these in the next 10 minutes…

6) Learn to Use a Fire Extinguisher

Hopefully, you will never have to use this, but just in case you have to.. it’s great to know how the thing works. It is present in almost every commercial building in USA and all over the world but probably only a few know how to use it. You pass them all the time as you walk the hallways at work or school. You can definitely learn how to use it in under 10 mins.

7) Learn how to meditate

Probably you should do this everyday. I don’t need to stress on how important it is for everyone of us, to de-stress in today’s world. Overwhelming information, busy careers and 24 hrs in a day always seem less, for most of us. We don’t have enough time for kids, spouses and families……let alone for ourselves. If you are at this point (who isn’t by the way).. stop and learn how to meditate. It will only help you.
