The 15 seconds per day rule

Damn, this ‘Rule of 200’ actually works. Thanx @hakmem.

There exists an even better rule which I’ve briefly mentioned before. I found about it via a comment made by John D. Cook:

I read somewhere that you can finish nearly any project if you work on it 15 seconds every day. The trick is “every day.” And if you do put in 15 seconds, you’re likely to put in more. Or more realistically, maybe you commit to 15 minutes a day. Same idea. Overcoming inertia is everything.

Usually when I fail to finish a project, it’s because I go for days at a stretch giving it *zero* time, not because I work consistently but progress too slowly.
