In a minute, you can scan an article with around 600 words. If you scan a newspapers, you can browse a daily newspaper with 40 editions; if you type for a minute, you can type more than 100 words; you can also run 400 meters in a minute,;in a minute, you can do more than 20 situps, which makes you feel comfortable. What can you do in a minute? There are so many answers. However, what we can do in one minute is limited, we must admit that one minute is too short. But if we cherish every one minute and learn to gather them, we can do great thing in one minute. To do what we commited, we will be great. Many principles needs us to learn them out, even a simple sentence. "What can you do in one minute" contains many principles, including essence of life. We can read, write, promote, do some sport and rest in one minute, why just enjoy the life everywhere? So, all myLotters, what can you do in your one minute?

I liked this post! And I think you're right: in one minute we can do a lot of things but if you think about it, one minute is kind of like the foundation for us, in the sense that it allows us to do something, and we need to take what we've learned and stretch it into more time to really accomplish or learn something! In a minute maybe I can answer three Mylot questions, or maybe put my sneakers on to go walk my dog!

I can delete my unwanted emails in a minute, I can check my bank balance in a minute and I can give my daughter a hug that lasts a minute, now that would be a long one! It depends what you are doing and minute can feel like an eternity or a blink of an eyelid. If you skipping rope and you’re unfit a minute can feel like forever and a minute holding the one you love will fly in what seems like an instance. A minute can be very important to the drowning man, to the worker running late to catch the bus or to the swimmer trying to win a race. We should cherish every minute because once it’s gone, it is gone forever...

Well in less then a minute I can certainly type more then 100 words as I am a trained touch typist and I work in admin. I can also scan an article very quickly as part of my job at work is to proof read documents but at a very fast pace. One of my faves though is filling up a kettle, switching it on, opening a jar of coffe and being hit with that wonderful aroma, putting a spoonful of said coffee into the cup and then filling the cup with boiling water. Bliss!

When all my fingers are screwed in tight, I can type a whopping 40 words of a 400 word article! Doesn't explain why the finished product takes me 45 minutes, though ...

It took me one minute to read your description and reply.So, i think u took up my 1 minute about which i thought about how to spend cause i really don't plan up that and if you think about it planning up make u spend more valuable minutes. So handle up as it comes.
