Not hard - people find it a lot easier to commit to several small chunks
of time rather than one long one. With smaller chunks you have less
hesitation about saying emergencies or changing professional commitments
won't be a problem. There's also just a major psychological problem
with making a major commitment compared to several small ones. We deal
with that all the time when recruiting new leaders.
