10 Ways to Make 10 Minutes Count



10 Ways to Make 10 Minutes Count

You have ten extra minutes. It’s not enough time to tackle a big project, but you don’t want to waste it either. Here are ten things you can do to make those few spare minutes matter.


  1. Write a thank you note to a donor, volunteer, or board member.
  2. Get on your organization’s website and learn something new about an area you represent.
  3. Call or email a potential donor to schedule a meeting.
  4. Google a fundraising topic you want to know more about.
  5. Log on to myAR and take a 10-minute Tune-up module.
  6. Call a donor to acknowledge a special event (i.e., birthday, promotion, birth of a grandchild, etc.).
  7. Review your notes from the last conference or workshop you attended.
  8. Tell a colleague you have noticed the great work he/she is doing.
  9. Update your task list—cross off what you’ve completed and add a few new items.
  10. Write down 10 things in your life for which you are grateful and post them where you can see them every day.
