When I make a coffee, I use a French Press.
You don't realize what you can accomplish in four minutes as you might just stand around waiting, listening to some music, or thinking about what you need to do.
However, if you get on the ground, you can't even fill four minutes with pushups. Most people can't do pushups for a whole minute. Definitely not four.
How many words can I type?
When I set the timer, it probably took 20-30 seconds to come into my office and sit down. But as soon as I did, I started typing.
I already had the page open - so navigation time was zero. I was ready to type.
If I get to the end of 200 words before the buzzer goes off, I'll know I have even fewer excuses for ever breaking my streak -- because I almost always make coffee a couple of times per day and this could be my new mini-habit.
Type the coffee. Brew the words. That didn't make sense, but I'm not editing. I'm writing. I guess I was editing a little.
There are apps that make it so that you can blur your words while typing -- to keep you from editing your thinking. You write until you reach your goal and then you edit later.
I already wrote more than the 200 words, but I'm typing until the timer goes off. Then, I'll grab my coffee and edit. I've already passed the 200 words, so this is going to work out quite well.
Did the alarm go off already? How fast do I type? ( 262 words in 4 minutes ) It just went off.
