I have a SPD 2010 workflow that needs to do two consecutive updates to a list.
The updates a to different items in the list.
The workflow does the first update to the list but unless I add a 1 minute pause after the first update, it fails to do the socond update.

The main problem is that althought the pause is set for 1 minute, it can take as much as five minutes before the second update, I believe this is due to the Timer Job running every 5 minutes.

Is there any way I can decrease the timer job so that it runs at a shorter interval?
Will that cause any problems with the rest of the site?
