So here it is in a nutshell.

You are incredibly busy. Your life is probably 90% filled with stuff you have obligated yourself to. You have very little spare time, or at least feel that way.

Yet you want to do more with your life – to have greater experiences; to do greater things; to touch more people. As Seneca (a 1st-century Roman philosopher) said:

So it is – the life we receive is not short, but we make it so, nor do we have any lack of it, but are wasteful of it. Just as great and princely wealth is scattered in a moment when it comes into the hands of a bad owner, while wealth however limited, if it is entrusted to a good guardian, increases by use, so our life is amply long for him who orders it properly.

This website is designed to help you to realize your desire for abundant life. Use it as a tool, as you should any resource you have. Let it guide you, whether through exercises, lifestyle changes, knowledge, or recommendations. And let it entertain you, when you have a few spare minutes and need a break.

This website is also designed for you to be able to take action very quickly toward improving your life. So many websites you visit or books you read lead to more reading, to more classes, more and more work, without leading you to actions that will directly benefit you now. While some of the posts are here for your enjoyment, most are potent self-contained chunks of information of proven value which you can immediately incorporate into your life, or things you can ponder that may lead to greater insights.

If you don’t know where to begin, start with this page: http://2spareminutes.com/the3steps/. Bookmark it, and return to it as often as you need to. I read it often, and think of it many times every day.

2 Spare Minutes was created with the intent of helping people to improve their lives by making the most of their spare moments. While the main site area will provide valuable content for many of your pairs of spare minutes, we think that you will gain the most long-term value from our book, 3 Steps to Success, and from the 2 Spare Minutes Academy, where we go more in-depth to give you life-changing knowledge.
